    Ap2010:  We live in my SO’s hometown. I guess it makes more sense as ALL of his family lives in one area and mine is spread out all over the place?

    Darling Husband and I are both from different cities and states on either coast. We both moved out at 18 for college and haven’t moved back to our respective towns since we left – our families travel a lot and DH’s parents actually moved not too far from where we live now. We met in a city we were both working in and just moved to another town we’ll be settling down and raising our little ones in.

    rittenhousenewbee:  Same here. Although it was work that took us elsewhere, we met there, and recently moved to another new town for his new job.

    My Fiance is from Dublin and I was born in Canada but living in Dublin the last 15 years. We currently live in Dublin but once we are ready to buy a house we will be moving to the countyside/commuter town. Dublin is way too expensive. A small 3 bed semi-detached house where we currently live will set you back 400K (euros)!! Its insane.

    We live ~30 minutes away from my hometown, but we met here as Darling Husband is in a grad program in the city we live in now. I imagine we will move away after he gets his PhD, but I’m hoping we eventually move back. We won’t ever live in his hometown.

    Ap2010:  FI and I live in my hometown as I owned my home before I met him. Our hometowns are only about 20 minutes apart, so when we move we’ll be looking for a place inbetween.

    We moved to his childhood hometown about a year ago. My hometown is about 3,000 miles away and sometimes it is hard. I didn’t move to TX for him, but I did move to a much more rural area. Also, the town is extremely small and everyone is very close knit since they all grew up together. So far, everyone has been so nice and I’ve made some sweet friends, but I would be lying if I said it wasn’t hard to swallow the homesickness. Overall, it was a good move. We aren’t long distance anymore and our rent/utilities are significantly cheaper.

    Ap2010:  We are from different cities, but he came to the city I was born/raised in due to college and stayed. I grew up here, went to college here and stayed here. His hometown is only 45 miniutes away.

    He’s been living here almost longer than he lived in his hometown.

    Neither.  I grew up in northern Wisconsin, and Fiance spent most of his childhood in southern Wisconsin.  We met in Madison (southern WI; about 45 minutes from FI’s hometown and 6 hours from mine) where we both went for college, and we still live here 7+ years down the road with no plans to move away.  This is also where we’re getting married.

    We were brought up in cities that fall within the same region, only about half an hour apart. We live in his city simply because my city is far too expensive to live in! I want to move back to my hometown city but I don’t think we’ll EVER be able to afford it.

    We live in fiancés hometown, and I hate it 🙁 We are from different regions in the US (I’m from New England, he’s from the south). All of his family literally lives within a 2 miles radius and we live on the SAME STREET as his parents, both his sisters and their husbands, their kids, 2 sets of aunts and uncles, and 2 of his cousins and their families. I hate it. Lol

    I am from California, and he moved from London to live with me. I think we both would have been happy in either place, but logistically and financially it made way more sense for him to move to the US.
