This idea makes no sense to me.
I mean it does, but its illogical...sorry.
Like California5 mentioned...either find a job in San Diego or your Hubby can find one in the L.A. area.
The long commute, the separate home, double rent, high gas, high mileage on your car can be prevented. Not to mention the status of your marriage.

Good Luck

*I live in Los Angeles and work here too but my parents live in San Diego...I visit almost every weekend...but thats only because Im not married.

We had a temporary deal like this a few years back, and I rented a room in a guy's house in the Miracle Mile area for my job downtown and drove home to San Marcos on my days off until my wife found a job in Los Angeles. It was passable but not ideal. Choosing to do it for a longer term seems folly to me; what's the point?

Have you looked up public transit? For example, if you lived in Oceanside could you take the train to Lancaster and he take it to La Jolla? I know La Jolla is doable, but I don't know the Lancaster part. You may also want to look more in the middle, only high cost living is in the middle. Like another said, is there a way to get that same job in SD County or even Orange County?

My husband , my children and I, are planning to move to San Diego but I was afford a position in LA. My husband was afford a position in San Diego. How is the commute from San Diego to LA? Public transportation? This job for me would be temporary until I get a job in San Diego. I hate to drive the traffic in La what is the best public transportation commute? I am actively looking for a position in San Diego as a back up.

Thank you.

Not possible.

You can do it a couple times a week, but it realistically will take you 2-3 hours each way.

Thank you.
Highly depends on the exact location of the to/from, since LA is large and could be way north or south. But you do need to allocate ~3 hours each way (train will be more consistent).
