Hi- I lived in MA for 2 yrs (brighton and somerville) so I can certainly understand your love of MA in general. However, if you have had a re-occuring desire to experience a new place then you should listen to that feeling. MA isn't going anywhere-If you move out to MN and hate it, you can always find your way back. I say go for it while there aren't any kids in the picture. You never know until you try and you don't want to have any regrets! Good luck!

If you're planning to have kids, I'd stay put or move to a nearby state so the kid could have a relationship with the grandparents. Been there, done that, and glad I stayed/moved nearby, considering my kid's grandmother died last year at age 67. Had we moved when and where I wanted they would have never gotten a chance to know each other.
I completely agree. I just think that it's really important for kids to be close with their family members.

I think 3 hours away is a good distance - driving time that is. YOu are far enough to have privacy but close enough for an occasional visit on special days.
