Default What are the best places for a young couple to live.

Me and my fiancee have been thinking about moving from our hometown in New Jersey to somewhere less expensive to live. Our only criteria is plenty of job opportunities, mild weather (mix of warm and cold seasons) leaning more toward the warmer climate if possible, affordable housing (whole point of moving) and a religiously neutral community.

Some of the places we've looked at but scratched off the list:

California: Really great weather but insanely high property costs. I would love to live there but we just don't make that kind of money.
Maryland: Most jobs "seem" to center around the government so that really limits the jobs you can find. I could be wrong in this assumption so please feel free to argue this point.
Texas: Extremely cheap but its just too south for us, we're agnostic and I have a fear of living within a community that wouldn't welcome us because of this.

Not if you're in one of the major cities. I would recommend Houston or Austin myself. Dallas is nice too.

I agree.

Maybe Phoenix, Albuquerque, Denver, or somewhere in the Southwest. The South might not take as well to agnostics and the Southwest is full of them.
