  • did he move away from you and the son you have together? I would say no, if HE moved away knowing he had a child on the way or already had that child. that's just my opinion.

  • Personally, I wouldn't move someplace cold for any reason, but to answer your question for you, you will have to figure out the benefits for you and your son. Will you be able to find a job? Do you have friends and/or family there? Can you be happy there? If you can do it and make a life, a decent life, then why not. But if you are going to be miserable for the sake of your baby's father, then you are not doing your baby any justice.

  • It depends on how amicable we are, what I've got going on where I live, if my husband would be willing to've left your question very vague....

    Me, I'm SAHM but my husband is trying to get his business off the ground here, so no, I would not move, but I would try to make it as easy for him to see our child as possible

  • I wouldnt go all that way If I wasnt married or planning to get married. I am married to an army man and currently in Italy so I know about following a man around the world, but to go all that way, leaving family and trying to start over without any sort of security, no way would I do it. I would be 100% willing to visit though.

  • Something similar happen to my aunt. But it ended up badly. She was married with two kids and going to college. Her dh and father of her two children got a job in another city. My aunt decided to stay and live with her mom while finishing her studies. In two years dh cheating on her with a coworker he met in his new job in the new city. Currently he is remarried and with children. My aunt never remarried but lives with her children.

  • You aren't moving for your son's sake, you want to be with the baby's father. I whatever you want. I wouldn't do it.
