    Relocating for love?

    Advertisements
    So, I'm curious, what does everyone think about moving out of state to be with an SO?
    Lets *hypothetically* say you've been together for a year and things are great. DB tells you that he is getting orders to PCS across the country. He asks you to go with him. You have a good career that is mobile, and are more than able to support yourself (i.e. won't be dependent on him to support you/provide a place to live). Do you move or do you not move until theres a deeper level of commitment aka engagement/marriage?

    Me, personally...I would only move with a ring on my finger. I wouldn't leave my family/friends/life for something without a bit more of a commitment.

    Unless you see the new location as a place you could stay for a while if you two were to breakup.... I wouldn't move unless there was an engagement.

    I did it. Even though we aren't together anymore, I don't regret moving.

    A ring is just a ring, it is just the commitment behind it. If you guys already have the commitment there then I would go for it.

    I personally would not do it.

    HOWEVER, if you would be happy in the area on your own, if you are completely able to support yourself and have enough in savings to be able to move out in a heartbeat and fend for yourself, and if you have pretty good feelers out for jobs in the area, it wouldn't be a bad decision. Basically, if he was out of the picture, if you would still be happy there, go for it. If you wouldn't be happy, then don't move without a deeper commitment.

    If you like it then you should put a ring on it lol..just kidding.

    I have mixed feelings on the whole thing.

    Lets just say you did move. For whatever reason, it didnt work out. How would you feel about being there? Would you move back to where you are now?
