How bad is it for me not to move with my husband to another city?

Hello Wc, my husband and I have been married for three years and we have always lived just 30 minutes away from my aging parents. My mother has retired from active service and she's been very helpful with the baby and I also am used to checking up on them from time to time as am an only child. Hubby just informed me he has applied for a job in another town about three hour drive away and initially I was excited but now after much thinking. I don't think I want to move to another town just yet. I prefer a 30 minutes drive to my parents to driving three hours just to see them. I don't know
what to tell him now because he needs this job as he is presently under-employed. 

Not that I'm dependent on them, but it's nice to have them 30 minutes away instead of 3 hours away. When it really comes down to it, I don't want to move. I don't even want the possibility of moving. So, my question is this: if my husband gets this job, how bad is it for me to not go with him to another town?

    You are not a serious person. Dont move o you hear after you will come and start crying that your husband has taken another wife. Its not as if you are moving out of the country. Mcheeeeeeewwwwwww some women sef

  2. Dear Poster,
    You have to think of your husband too and his future as well as your family's future. I understand that as an only child you want to be close to your parents but come to think of it, three hours is not too far away. You can visit them as frequently as you used to by mapping out days to pay them a visit. Trust me, three hours is not too far away and living separately from your husband should not be an option.

  3. Even the bible says you shall leave your patents and cleave to your husband/wive and the two will becone one flesh.
    I will suggest you go with your husband so you can help each other settle nicely into the new environment.
    You just had a baby, let him also get the opportunity to bond with the baby. This can only happen if you live with him. You can work out an arrangement to go visit your parents once every week or every other week.

    Poster, don't be an enemy of progress - na your future you dey play with so... You better repent and start to pray that your husband make progress if you do not want to be called a witch. So if he get an international job and have to relocate to another country - would you divorce him?
    I am sure God will work out how the gap with your parents will be taken care of. Distance is nothing when the heart is there - and thank God for easy communication system.

  6. Mbok is this one also an issue?
