DH has been offered a job in Atlanta. We live in CA. It is his dream job, and he applied months ago not really thinking he would get it and completely forgot about it into he got the call a couple of days ago. However, now that he has been offered it he doesn't know if he wants to take it and leave me and the kids. Moving with him is not an option as here is where my youngest sons doctors are, my companies, and everybody else is happy with their school and friends.
How do I tell him that I want him to go, that I am perfectally capable of holding up the fort here? I don't want to sound like I am pushing him away, but I want him to experience this and after a very stressful year I feel it would be good for us to spend some time apart from one another. It's not like we would never see one another, he will be working 4 days on, 3 days off shifts and can fly home. Not to mention he would be getting payed almost 100k more than he currently is and the experience would look amazing on a resume.
How do I approch this? Would you allow your DH to work so far away from home?
