So I have been married 10+ years together longer, we have 2 kids. In this economy my husband has had to take a job far away from us. I'd love to say the money was great but it's barely getting us by. I am miserable with him gone, and he is really enjoying being out and making plans for this to continue. For weeks now I have been honest about

I think if he wanted to be with his family, that he'd be actively looking for jobs in your area. Why can't you move where he is? It sounds like he's making excuses why he doesn't want you to move there. What was the agreement when he up and moved. Did you both agree that you would move there after one or more of the kids finished a certain grade?

My husband is in the trucking industry so he is where his truck is, not enough room for a family of 4 and pets. He won't be able to apply for local postions while trucking until he has been out on the road for 2 years. He was an Air Traffic Controller not something that segweys into a private sector job easily and the few that are out there are in demand and in odd locations, if he does get accepted.

My youngest is special needs, between Dr's, specialists, therapists and his school, and these services are not avaialbe in every community, My husband thinks that since our son is going to transitional kindergarten next year
