So we are relocating. Since I'm pregnant I have stayed in Ky with my mother and DH has gone on to Ohio to build a life for us there. Over the years his mental and physical health has declined here. We also really have no social life in Ky. In Ohio (Where were moving to) he has many friends and family so I think he will be more happy there. My question is do you believe location can have a positive or negative affect on spirituality?
DH doesn't claim any religion, he's simply spiritual and believes many religions have some truths. He's studied most major ones, and a lot of the less known as well.
I hope with this move he will regain some of his spiritual strength he had when we were first married. He was so happy and jubiliant then. So far he's talking about starting to do weddings(We are both ordained ministers). I just hope the move is positive.

Absolutely. It all comes down to happiness. If you're not happy living somewhere, for whatever reason, then it will definitely have a negative impact on your mental health.

It can have a positive impact on your spiritual being, but I don't think I'd rely on it to solve the problems. If someone is struggling there are deeper issues that need to be dealt with and moving will only give a temporary improvement at best. This is why I believe a lot of people with psychological issues crave change so much, it gives them a temporary respite from their internal struggles, but the old issues usually surface again soon after. I hope the move is a good one, certainly having a stronger support system will benefit your DH.
