    Apply for everything and see what happens.  A decent enough offer may be enticing enough for you and your husband to move.  Bear in mind that he would need to find a new job and you will need to sell/rent your house as well if it’s really far away.

    @Katchin:  I’m not sure… if I were experiencing the same, I would probably keep doing what I’m doing. I wouldn’t feel right forcing my fiance to leave his job (which he does really love, like your husband) to move somewhere new where there’s the risk of both of us being unhappy in our jobs. You haven’t said that you hate your current job; with that in the mix, I think it would be worth hanging in there until something does come up. Good luck and I hope it all works out 🙂

    @Katchin:  Do you live in one of the capital cities? Because I would have thought there was a large range of possible schools within commuting distance if you are. So assuming you’re in a capital, I’d say look in your city.

    If you’re in a regional area, my instinct is to limit it to commuting distance anyway, at least initially. It sort of depends on your DH’s job opportunities.
