Here’s the scenario: After a conversation with your sister where she expressed interest in moving out of state you turn to your husband (or significant other) and ask “would you move out of state”? The quick answer for us was yes. Instead of the normal parameters of sticking within the state I changed my sights to the whole United States (and dabbled with the idea of moving to some where in Europe) and started searching for jobs in areas that I felt we would be most likely to succeed. That’s when it sank in. Were we taking the right things into consideration? Were we ready?
Depending on your personal situation the questions you could be asking are endless and at times feel more like soul searching. Here are a couple questions that I feel are important to ask yourself, your significant other, your children or your potential employer:
- Do we have permanent ties? This boiled down to do we have legal reasons why we can’t move away (i.e. child support, court order and divorce agreement). Give you self plenty of time to settle this issues.
