Political reasons? No way. I wouldn’t mind moving to a ‘red’ state or ‘blue’ state becaue I don’t agree 100% with either party.

Safety/Diversity reasons? Yes, I definitely would. I would prefer my children to grow up in a diverse socio-economic area.  But that definitely does not go the ways of politics!!

Well, if I had a gay son and was living in a very conservative city and he was bullied and had no opportunities, I would move for his sake. But if I just wanted them to grow up with like-minded people, no.

I’d want to teach my children that people are different, not everyone believes or thinks the same way we do, and it’s important to respect that and still stand up for yourself.

My family is very conservative and I and my brother are… not. We were raised in a very conservative area, sent to Christian schools (we do still believe), but were taught to be open minded and tolerant and appreciate art.

I doubt there would be political reasons for me to move that staying within the same country would solve.  Depending on the issue, I suppose I would consider moving to another country, but with where I am currently, that’s a very hypothetical question.

@mrshoneybee:  Yes, I understood, but I don’t believe family aside from kids and spouses should hold anyone back from moving/doing whatever. 


And yes, I would absolutely move away.

As a liberal feminist living in conservative SC…yes, I would. Once we have kids we will think about it more seriously.

Darling Husband and I seriously considered moving about a year ago,  and threw some big time changes out on the table ( Boston,  Madison, WI). Ultimately,  we decided that those places ( while awesome to visit), weren’t for us.  We like where we live,  we like the people we are surrounded by,  we like the schools,  churches and close knit  vibe. We also took into account our political leanings,  so I would say that yes–it would impact my decision making.  However;  I already live where I would move to… so looks like I’m staying put!

Darling Husband  and I are planning to move cross country in a year. NJ is entirely too costly and too crowded. Its frustrating that driving a few miles can take upwards of 30 minutes. I dont like living near the city and if i had kids, i would prefer they grow up in a smaller town which is slower paced.
