    I really don’t think I would. I really love where I live. I like the changing seasons and the lakes and rolling hills. I guess it also depends on whether you really have to or not. I’ve never had to make this kind of decision.

    I would really consider it. I am a citizen of the USA, Italy, and Ireland. I have thought seriously about leaving, if it worked out for everyone involved. I think that people get into ruts and into doing the same thing…that they get in the mood for a change. It makes people feel more alive. The problem is, not all people are at the same place in life! It would have to be a well thought out plan for me to do it! 🙂

  3. I will definitely consider it. If it is a generous offer, I’ll definitely accept.

    I wouldn’t even consider moving away from my children and grandchildren.

    Some things should be more important than money. I’ve (personally) determined that a close relationship with family is one of them. And NO you can not have the same relationship over the phone, internet or SCOPE.

    It would really depend upon where it was located. I really like the seasons, too, which is why I wanted to move back to the Midwest from Texas. But I’m really getting sick of the tornadoes I’ve dealt with for most of my life, so somewhere OUT of Tornado Alley would suit me just fine. I also agree with MSSC – Family is so important, and I would want them to move with me, if at all possible. They’re an adventurous bunch, and so close to retirement, they could do it!

    We’ve thought about it but no, I don’t think so. I finally feel at home somewhere and it takes a while for me to feel that. This is my home and I’m done moving.

    NO!! I love were I am.I feel settled and at home.I would not leave my chldren and grandchikdren.Lifes too short.I have learned that money doesnt make you happy,family and friends do 🙂

    Wow, I’m surprised reading the comments that most people like where they live and would not move. I also really like the seasons so I’m not sure, but at this point I’m glad I’m not faced with that decision.

    I was born in Texas and I will probably die in Texas!
    My parents were both from the North East and moved to Texas away from their families due to my dad’s job. When I was a teen I moved to Connecticut for 6 months and came back home to Texas. When I was in my late teens, early 20’s I moved to New Hampshire for 2 1/2 years and came back home to Texas.

  10. Mark says:

    I lived in the US for a year and was shocked by how much folks moved around – and how families were split across different states.

    I would struggle to move because I am used to having all of my family within a 25 min drive – that would be hard to leave – or for some may be the perfect reason to leave!

    It depends on where it was located, how the pay was, how vacations worked and all of that. If it got me away from my sister, you bet I’d be going!!!

      Well, let’s see we have about 3 months of winter, live 30 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, four hours to the mountains and even have a shrimp season where we can get our bait, boat and cast net and catch our own shrimp.

      Pluss we have lots and lots of people that get cut open in hospitals all around here!

      Howzat? 🙂

      P.S. I’m not positive but I’m pretty sure your sister isn’t even a day’s drive from here. lol

  12. Tosha says:

    it would depend on where and who i had to take with me..LOL

  13. SKL says:

    Nope. It would have to be a lot more than just a job to get me to consider leaving my family and everything I’m comfortable with.
