Just to give you an example the M-I-L stated, "Didn't anything your dad talk to you about the other day sink in? Have you changed your mind yet?" Good grief, I thought, yet? My wife responded with a big "no" and went on to tell her we are not under their authority and this relocation could be, as LynnePatrice mentioned, a god send.

There was no yelling or my name being dragged through the mud, which was something else my wife told her mom was not appreciated. So, it was progress. My wife said she had butterflies when she saw her mom drive up our driveway, but she held her own.
Yay!! That's awesome. Sounds like you and your wife are displaying a united front!! Good luck!

Smile Idea....

Keep the in-laws informed and involve them in the decision by inviting them to join you (second home possibly). It is scary as an in-law (sometimes) to feel like your family is moving away.

As you get older, change is scary but keep them involved and let them know you are still a big part of their lives, etc.

The kids will adjust but it's a good idea to move before high school starts. I'm sure that's on your mind.

Very very hard decision though.

Covered that base when I told F-I-L "feel free to come down whenever you want." See, this is easy for them because they own a 4-seat airplane. Didn't really get a reaction to this statement though.

And our goal is to be moved, God willing the house sells, before the kids enter high school else we'll likely end up staying here for a lot longer .
