    How do I know I'm doing the right thing!
    My husband and I have been married for 8 years. We have two Kids (Boy 5 and Girl 6) Our familys Have been a great help with a lot over the years however I have had a lot emotional problems since having the kids. I used to work in the clubs (bar work) and now the kids are at school I have gone back to 9-5 It has helped me see what my problems have been. I don't get along with his mother and I feel my family ask too much of me. We are thinking of moving out of state to start fresh. The kids love the idea but I'm worried about them not growing up around there grand parents. What do you think.

    If the move is best for your family - emotionally, financially, and physically, after you have considered all the options and still want to move, go for it. At least check everything out and weigh your choices. You can always visit, the grandparents can come and visit - things like that work out. My parents moved away from their parents and we all survived. Most of my aunts and uncles lived out of state also and it nade reunions and vacations more fun. You and your husband can only be responsible for your family.

    A fresh start is not a bad idea in my opinion, but research it and make the choice best for your family. Good luck.

    Hi Mrs. James,

    I think the decision to move out of states is good as it will help your relationshipgrow and also give you a chance to be with your husband alone. This will help the relationship grow and you willalso get some quality time. As far your children not rowing around their grandparents is concerned you can for sure bring them to states every vacation and let them know their grand[parents. Also, science has deveoped a lot, internet with web caeras can be a great help. What do you say?

    If its right for the four of you, its right. They may try and talk you out of it, but its because they love you all and just don't want to see you leave. Ultimately, only you and hubby know what's best.
    Just promise kids and grandparents alike that you'll keep the lines of communication buzzing. They'll enjoy sending snail mail art work, cards and pictures as well as email. If this decision was made with your kids future in mind (a better one!) then you're 100% right to do it. :)
