If your SO were offered a job, which was well paid, in another part of the world, would you be willing to change places?

It depends on what part of the world....Not to any war zone, or anyplace where realtions with the U.S. is iffy. Anywhere else, I would consider it.

Yep, depends on where. If it were Hawaii, or somewhere tropic, I'd sooooo be packing up my junk in a hurry!

This is always a topic of discussion in our house. For my husband to probably ever get a higher paying job in his field we'd have to relocate. I don't think I could bring myself to move my family outside of the contiguous 48 states. He'd have to be making ALOT more money to do so to make it worth being so far from our families.

It would have to a butt-load of money to make me leave this place. As in, at least 7 digits.

I have to say no to this question. I am very happy with were we live Tristian is in a very good school and loves it. I have a great group of friends including the mum's from playgroup. My D/H'S family are here and we get on good with most of them. D/H also has a good net work of mates to.

It depends..... Where? For how long? What would it be like for my child(ren)? It's hard to be away from family. Ever since everything happened with Isaac, I realize how much I miss having my family close. I live 22 hours away (driving) from my parents right now and 24 hours from my youngest sister. It's *very* hard.... and I don't like it.

It depends. I would say "Yes" for the most part but we live so close to our parents and family that it would really be a tough decision. Where? for how long? how much money? My parent's help watch our kids when I work so I would rather not work where ever we end up...except for one day a week.

I have such a hard time with this because when my brother and his family moved to Key West...it broke our hearts...we are soooooo close. It's fun to visit but I sure wish we were all together again.
