Hi! I appreciate your feedback so much and also wish there was a magic wand. I still feel uneasy about this whole moving issue. I, too, wonder how much of this is a "geographical cure." He lived in Florida for ten years. His reasoning for wanting to move back there is 1) the warm weather and 2) financial. Houses in Florida are half the price down there then they are here.He wants to buy his own business and be his own boss. We struggle and live paycheck to paycheck and can't afford child care. Looking at Fla., from the financial perspective, makes it awfully tempting, but I am not an impulsive person. I have to think things through first, weigh the odds, etc.

 A friend of mine said maybe this (moving to Fla.) is what dh needs to make a fresh start, to support his family. I am tired of "sucking it up" so he can be"happy"-which he hasn't been. What about me? Who's husband/partner/s.o. gives an  ultimatum? Is a relationship not suppose to be 50/50? I have just about always gone along with what he wants just to hear him stop his complaining! In the end, I did harm to.myself by choosing to be quiet. 

 What are your thoughts on "electronic meetings?" I am a little leary to try them! Thankyou again for your feedback  from my first post. Thankyou for listening!
