How do you deal with moving away from family?. My dh moved away from his sons and his family and friends so we could be together. Although he missed his sons like crazy, he was getting sick of ohio ,and  it didnt start bothering him until a two or three months ago.(we wanted to visit but we couldnt do it and i felt horrible). I asked him about it and he said itd be better for us in pretty much every way to move there. (we rent a 2bdr apartment for 500$ where we can rent to own a house there for the same price.) My moms going with us since my brothers going to college and none of us want her to be alone. All my other family were leaving in ct. my sister, nephew, aunt, cousins, stepdad and all his family. It just hurts i know this is whats best for my husband, daughters, mom and myself and i know its only an eight hour drive to visit but it still hurts. Weve always been close and it just sucks

It's not easy. I moved away from everyone to be with Dh. You get used to it eventually. Try to look at it in a positive light. It's an adventure and a better life for your family.

Its just a part of my life...my dad is retired military, so staying in one place for more than 4 years is not the norm in my life.  I wish I could give you more advice or something though.  [[hugs]]

I'm 5hr away from my family and my inlaws. The thing that has been really pivotal for me was the friends I have made here. I would say join as many mommies groups & interest groups as you can in your new town. Other than that Skype or Google arr wonderful things to have!
