hard to explain, but I got the general idea he was fishing for information in the marriage vein,

For this reason alone I would go with your gut instinct and not tell him you were going until right before the trip, and honestly I probably wouldn't tell him where you are going. Sad but given his history I would not give him any opportunity to interfere/screw with your plans.

I assume there is no circumstance under which he could obtain custody of the kids from your sitter in your absence? Because I could not think of a reason that he could ruin your plans (in the form of forcing you to return home) unless it involves the kids. Of course you could probably think of ways he could do this, but I am fortunately not as familiar with the evil-ness achievable by certain folks.

I would also not tell him you got married until your return. The "Well it was Vegas so it seemed like a good idea" spiel is a great one, and requires no further detail.
