We almost moved to Dubai for a job offer earlier this year.  After the wedding, we are likely heading to Denver.  I certainly had/have apprehension, but I feel like as long as I have Fiance, it’ll be OK.

I think it sounds like a great opportunity provided you can survive on his salary only.  I’m sure that there are teaching positions everywhere.  My husband got a job across the country a month after the wedding so we had to move for that.  I still haven’t been able to find a job here though.

At least it’s a city you know you love. Look forward to seeing your friends again. According to my friends with kids, they don’t take up space until they get a little older, so even if you start a family pretty soon you can live in an apartment for a while. Try to enjoy it. Chicago is a great town and there are some nice neighborhoods with houses. We’ll be moving soon after the wedding – to whereever we get jobs!

I’m not looking for a job until he has a formal offer.  I’m a teacher/translator so there are a number of places i could hypothetically work, but I know they would probably call for references and I don’t want the current bosses finding out just yet, in case the final offer isn’t there.  We could do OK-ish on his salary, but we do have a house here to sell, so there is some debate about me staying here and working my current job until the house sells, since we don’t know how long that could take.  So complicated! Planning out the move to Dubai was actually easier!!

Good I’m glad you two are discussing it.  I have been without work for 9 months now.  Thankfully, my husband’s salary can cover all the essentials but I wish we had a little more so I wouldn’t feel horrible for buying face cream.

@rachelss – Thanks! Hope it works out for us!  Fiance lived there for 5 years, and I liked what I saw during our visit in September.

I’m moving for Fiance so that he can complete his Master’s degree… but we’re only moving an hour away from where we live now. In fact, the first two months of this arrangement might have me commuting that hour every day. Grr.

Next may, when Fiance graduates, he’ll get a job offer that could take us anywhere. I don’t mind. I look at it like an adventure, plus I’m a college student that’s already broke. It couldn’t get much worse–as long as I find a job doing SOMETHING, i’ll be ok.

I understand where you are coming from. I have been dealing with this for the past month too. My FH had an offer letter to work in Texas and the same city where I am currently a grad student. But a month later, he ended up in Oklahoma instead. I just went to visit him and it was ok (lol ok in OK). I wouldn’t mind living there because 1. doesn’t seem too different from my home town and 2. he is there. But I prefer to stay a little closer to our families.

As of now, I don’t know if they will have a position available out here before the wedding, but we decided to stick together. Since he needs a job to take care of us, I may have to move. I know that it may be hard, but I am just praying that God’s will be done.

Good luck!
