  • Plain and simple... family comes first. Remind him of that

  • Many times in history men have had to go off alone and set up things and send for the family. Trust him to know what's best for his family.

  • Tell him to grow up. He wants to move back because he is uncomfortable get over it you have a kid. If they doesn't matter to him then your kid is better off without him

  • well if that it how he feels then he should do something about it and leaving you and your child behind is not doing anything...that would be he a man or not..?

  • Why would he want to move 12 hours away from his family not knowing when you guys would be able to move with him? Wanting to move away from your family without a concrete plan is kind of ridiculous. I agree with PP. Moving to another state to "get things together" is a cop out and he's running away from the problem. He should want to stay and make things better where he is. Then after you and him have gotten things together and he still wants to move, then go from there. However, he is abandoning his family on a slim to no chance that he'll get things together.. That to me is absolutely wrong. Family comes first, and getting things together is a husband and wife job. He needs to take responsibility, face the issues, and get things together where his is with you.

  • Why does he want to move to his home state? Does he think the jobs would be better, cost of living lower, or does he just hate living with your mom and want to live with his parents, or is it an 'escape'? I do think you need to sit him down and discuss this. If he wants to move he needs to explain his reasons for wanting to move back home-- and let you know what his 'game plan' is--- where will he live, where will he work, how long does he expect it to take before he can send for you and dd? If it were my hubs, I know I would not want him to move 12hr away from me and the kids. I would want him to work here and save up enough money so we can ALL move there together. I would also want him to have a job or job interviews lined up and not move until he secures a job in that area.
    good luck I hope it all works out!

  • if that's what he wants, i'd tell ok go, but since i have no job and we have the kid, you must for the time being leave us well prepared here, where we are, or at another affordable place - leave some money etc., take your time if you need it (the last i could think of would be moving to a shelter or yours friends till he prepares the nest for the 2 of you to come; living at his friends would put a pressure on him to have things lined up soon, or .. he would really gained bad opinion, people see; some guys care). i think he does not want your mom near, that's why he goes farther. moving to his parents would put you in a similar situation what's unfair. i'd help him find a job for all of you 1st where you leave, and over time better one so as you could move to better living together.
