If..

Your DH SO was offered work(by the company he now works for) in Saudia Arabia for the next 7 months, then would return home, would you tell him to take it? Would you want to go with him, or stay behind? He would make the same amount of money, just have travel expences and food paid for. What if they told him if he didn't go he was out of a job? Would that make a difference in how you answer this question?

  • If it meant he was out of a job I would probably tell him to go. But if thats the case its a bunch of crap in my opinion. 7 months is a long time to be without your SO.

  • No way would I want him to take it. That's too long to be away from us, I think, especially at the age my son is at.

  • I would tell him no way, but if he was going to be out of a job I would say go and we will go with you. Our son isn't in school so that wouldn't be a problem and there is no way I would want to be away from him for that long if we could help it.

  • That is tough. If he is in a field where he would be able to quickly find a new job in the states I would try that first. If that was not an option I would go with him.

  • Oh, and to answer the rest of the question. I would not move there, and he wouldn't want to either.

  • So, if you own your home you would leave it for 7 months?
