I had to LOL at SCGranny's post about snakes dropping into your boat. The first time that happened to me I shot the snake with my 38 before I realized I shot a hole in the bottom of my boat.

Years ago me and a friend had alligator tags so we set some lines out. Check them the next day and sure enough we got a nice eight footer.

We pulled him up and my buddy shot him, or at least we thought he was shot. The shot didn't kill him, just knocked him out.

We pulled him into the boat and a few minuets later this thing came alive and was mad as all hell. Needless to say we gave him the boat, not a smart move jumping into gator infested water. Lucky for us we were only a few feet from shore and the gator didn't stay in the boat that long.

Default Op

Thank you to all who gave helpful answers--I appreciate you all putting thought to my situation and giving your advice.

I agree that this type of issue should be talked about before marriage. We actually did talk about this, though, in premarital counseling 11 years ago, and I was very upfront w/ my hubby that I didn't want to stay in MD for very long, and I told him the states I was interested in, most of them quite far away. He told me he understood and when the time came we would look together and find somewhere else to live. Things change though, parents get sick (hubby's dad was extremely healthy and robust when we got married--none of us would have guessed he'd develop alzheimer's), family dynamics change, and people change.

We've had some good talks lately about this issue, and believe it or not my husband has been thinking of ways that we can move and still be accessible to family. He's been talking to his co-workers about the various places they live--they are all consultants like he is and they live all over the country-- and he's suggested that we take our vacation time soon to look at some of these places I've been thinking about.
Meanwhile I've told him that I think we should wait to move until things change with his father. He still thinks we should start looking at places now and start really researching the areas that appeal to both of us.

So we may stay put for awhile, but we'll have fun looking around and dreaming, together.

Life is not always about you, and what you want...or where you want to live...it costs money to move, and why do you want to waste that money? Just because you "want to"...it is childish, and not well thought out at all. There are no reasons to move, and many reasons to stay...

So many broad and negative assumptions about someone you know virtually nothing about. You wouldn't know this, but my life is way busier than I'd like it to be. I'm not trying to search for meaning in my life by moving. There are specific and well thought-out reasons why I've wanted to move--most are too personal to post, so you wouldn't know those, either. You simply don't know what you're talking about here.

I did ask for opinions, but making these kinds of statements about someone you don't know and never met is illogical and mean, frankly.
