There is no easy answer

When faced with easy choices such as what to have for dinner, what movie to see, or what color to paint a room, most people can come up with a decision with little to no effort.

When it comes to life choices, where to live, what career path to take, or whom to spend your life with, things can get more complicated.

You must weigh all the options carefully because the choice you make can affect you and your family for years to come. My boyfriend and I have been having a bit of a disagreement over one of the choices for the past two weeks and I am beginning to wonder if we will ever agree. Things are pretty serious and I was really starting to feel like he was the “one”. Then, he asked me, out of the blue, if I would be willing to follow him up North due to a job he had been offered. I am a southern girl, born and bred, and I love the warmth and sun here. I can’t imagine being cooped up in a house for six months or more enduring the endless cold and ice. Even with the best of HVAC system I just know that I will be miserable. I will also feel like I am living in stagnant air because I won’t be able to open the windows and air out the house. I get that this is an opportunity that could make our lives easier, financially, but, I just don’t see how our relationship could survive if I were unhappy with where we are living.
