Im engaged to be married
My fiance works in Newark, DE and I work in Germantown.
WE would very much like to live together after our wedding (which in in 3 months )
Please suggest some places where we can live..
Switching our jobs (for atleast a year) is not an option. and Im scared of the 495 traffic. I dont want him to travel 120 * 2 miles evryday either.

Thanks for the help!

That's a tuff one to answer. You need to give more details like what area you live in now, Are you looking for a house or an apartment and in which state?

What 495 traffic are you refering to that you hate? 495 in De. Has three lanes at 65mph and no jam ups (except when they work on it somewhere). If your looking for a place that's 50/50 between work places, that wouldn't be in De.

You need to be a little more specific to get pointed in the right direction.

Oh wow. I used to work in Germantown MD (lived there, too). Then I moved to Owings Mills, MD (just northwest of Baltimore). By taking Rt 26 and Rt 27, I could get to Germantown with a nice, low traffic drive (until Damascus) in a little over an hour. Distance was 40 miles.

The problem is that Owings Mills is also a good hour plus (and tolls) from Newark on 695 & 95. And that is with no traffic.

You don't really have any good options, unfortunately.

[SIZE=4]My what great opportunities you have available. I am very excited for you. I'd suggest the RT 50 301 areas. Queen Anne's County would be great for you if you can find something in your price range. Especially if you enjoy water fun because you're so close to the Chesapeake and so many rivers. I would suggest you live in Maryland because I love Maryland the best. Also check into the marriage laws. In Maryland what is mine is mine. If I marry my husband is not entitled to half of what I already owned coming into the marriage and vice versa. In Delaware the laws are you get half even if you were married for just a year. (unless they changed it and I don't think so)
Talbot County is nice but it's a little further for the drive to Germantown. You also have Caroline and Kent Co, MD too.

Best of luck
