Well, a few of the people I have met from my husband's office live there, and we have been hanging out a bit with them. The area def has more to offer and better access to Charlotte as well for things to do. We can't just say at this point it is not for us and either go back to the NYC office, or the Jersey office. He signed a 2yr commitment for the new role and location, and truthfully it will be more like 3 to transition back. With that in mind, I have to find a more normal place to live, with good schools, and full time nurses for the schools. We are def not staying in the Charlotte area long term, just can't come and immediately turn back around. That would be career suicide.

My point is, if you keep moving to be "closer to Charlotte" why not just move to Charlotte.

Maybe you'll like it. It is certainly more interesting than Clover or Fort Mill.

NC is very different from LI. I can see how you would have mover's remorse.

I think it's important to do a pro and con list on paper. See what it looks like in black and white. Good luck.
Could not agree more. Good luck, OP.

Don't want urban living, and I need good schools with full time nurses. Even thought technically NC says they finally have the nurses this year, I know there are still schools without them. People in other groups are talking about it. Sorry if I hijacked this person's thread, was just trying to relay our story so someone else does not make the same or similar mistakes with relocating to the area, or any area for that matter. What is sometimes great for a career, is not so great personally, and a healthy work/life balance is important.

I live in Union County, moved from Jersey over 7 yrs ago...I understand your dilemma. There are tons of options in Charlotte metro in and outside of Charlotte.

Both parents have to be "all in" to make a move work.

All I can say is give it a 100% chance to work, and if still doesn't feel right, then I wish you the best of luck..

That's good advice.
