I just wanted to hear opinions from engaged bees that are long distance. I am finishing up grad school and my fiance took a job in TN (I am in Boston), and the job is moving to Denver in a few months. I am just getting frustrated because there is no guaranteee I will get a job in Denver with the market being so bad. Anyone have similar experiences and what to do if you are married and living apart?

@ablass: we’ve been long distance for over 2 years, engaged for 1.5 years of it. ngl, it’s tough; especially now that we’re married. the distance is really wearing us down and we’re so ready to bridge that gap! i’ll be getting a promotion in a month so once i have that i’ll be seriously looking to move to where he is. there’s no guarantee that you can find a job anywhere, so all you can do in the meantime is research what’s out there and prep yourself to be as viable as possible to employers.

I feel you. I am moving in 9 days to be with Fiance in his hometown. I’m quitting my job and moving there with nothing lined up. I make VERY good money and have great benefits, but I’m not too worried, I have some savings, and cost of living is ALOT cheaper down south. I’m college educated, have experience and never seemed to have trouble finding a job.
The stress of being apart, coupled with some of the most unfortunate things happening was making us both miserable. We just weren’t willing to be apart anymore.

Yeah, I guess I am a “northeast” girl and I am having trouble of the idea of moving west. I would if he had an unbelievable opportunity but it really isn’t. However, I guess we are getting married so I will have to make sacrifices but I don’t want to.

@ablass: It’s hard to be the one sacrificing. I am going to miss all my family and nieces and nephews. The city I live in is terrible and frankly hate my job. I’m focusing on getting out of mid atlantic before the snow hits and heading for some warm weather with Fiance.
