My husband is leaving

My husband received a job offer but it requires he live away from the family during the week. It will help secure our financial future but we do ok as it is. We would be fine if he stayed but he really wants to take the job. He thinks he'd be able to transfer back locally in 4-6 years. He says its what's best for the family but I don't know.

it wouldn't fly with me. that would be a last resort.. as in, the only other option is starvation and homelessness. otherwise, we stay together.

Why not move with him?  I am not an advocate of splitting up a family like that if someone doesn't have too.  I wouldn't want to live that that but to each their own. This sounds like a spin off of the other post aobut the woman who wanted to live apart from her husband and son for 5 years to get a PhD.

He would be 2 hours away.

Quoting Jessy613:

where is he moving to? and where do you live?
