Why do you live where you do?

This has really been on my mind. Partially from my friend, (her kids and my kids are best friends) talking about moving, partially from a discussion board from school, partially from my ds talking about moving really far away (he's only 13, so we'll see if he's serious in a few years).

I'm here bc of family. My immediate family is here, almost all of my dh's family is here. I just couldn't imagine a life being away from them.

We just picked a random place to move to.

It's where I got a job. It's 6 hours away from where I grew up. I never saw myself living in this city, but I'm okay with it now and don't mind it much.

It's where my ex husband's job is. He moved here, met me, married me and we had a family. We will probably move to where his family is once our daughter finishes at least her bachelor's degree.

Honestly the only 2 things keeping me here is:

1. It costs thousands upon thousands of dollars to move. Airline tickets, hotel costs, shipping our car/personal belongings, etc.

2. Healthcare laws here are much better and all of my family has affordable healthcare. Having 2 children with medical needs would probably put us in the poor house if we moved.

We moved here because DH was offered a great job. We stay because it’s very family oriented, good schools, mid range cost of living, my family is 3 hrs away so close enough.

It's where my husbands job is. If the pay was comparable where my family lives, we'd much rather be there.

We moved because where we were stationed was hell. Once hubs got out he wanted good VA care so we moved to Texas, not sure that I want to stay here though
