i can’t relate to your exact situation, but i can relate to being farther from family than i would like. me and my FH live in georgia, his family is in minnesota, and mine is in philadelphia. we have friends spread out all over the country. we like our independence but sometimes its hard to be away from the friends and family you know have your back no matter what.

will you all still be in the same area/city? is so, thats a blessing. in those first weeks or months following the wedding, just make it a point to visit a lot and, hell, have sleepovers! who says you cant stay with your family just cause youre a married woman 🙂

  • Wedding: June 2009

While my fiance lives 2000 miles away, I still live with all my siblings at home.  I moved home after college to save money because I knew marriage was coming–my older brother hasn’t been able to get an apprenticeship as an electrician so he’s still at home and m two younger sisters are still in high school and college.  My parents absolutely love it and really don’t want us to leave.

It’s been challenging a little bit, but now that I’m getting closer to my wedding and moving out of my house, city, state–all the way across the country, I’m getting really sad to leave my family behind.  There’s something about family you’ve lived with your whole life that is hard to leave!  You’re just used to them.

 I’m sure your family would all agree that tons of visiting/sleepovers are in order for when everyone separates–and I’m sure you’ll have some appreciation for some peace and quiet and alone time.

You’re blessed to have such a tight-knit family that gets along so well!  I don’t know what it’s going to be like for me, but it will involve trips home as often as we can swing it (probably more for me than for fiance) and probably lots of skype/video chatting to stay connected.
