Would you?

Would you suffer through a nearly 2 hour commute for work 5 days a week (2 hours total per day, not each way) if someone was willing to GIVE you a free house that was twice the size of the one you lived in? Or would you prefer to pay a mortgage for the next 20 years on your current home that is 25 minutes from your job.

I had a 2 hour commute for 7 years

I gave it up for a 15 minute commute and would never go back

A lot of other factors would play into that.

I commute that long every day with no free house.

I did the two hour commute... I loved the drive and the tranquil silence in the car.... I did it and I didn't have a free house as a motivator... I'd do it again.

Which area is better? Lower crime, better schools, closer to places I would go? If they're pretty much equal, yes I would take the free house with the commute. If the house I'm paying for is in a better location, I would stay.

My dad did while we were growing up (lived in the country, he worked in the city) and he hated it. But did it. Winters sucked!! My dh did for about 6 months, then we moved closer to work for him. He hated the drive, the winters and not seeing the kids as much.
