Mindy — I understand, but if the marriage continued, would you still feel that the sacrifice was only for him, not the “us”?
T — I may be weird, but I think you and Rascal have the almost perfect arrangement — close enough to see each other, not too close to smother each other.
Life Begins — Welcome here! I know a few people who had similar situations, and ten their partner reneged. That’s the risk we take for love, I guess.
Honey — that sounds like a truly balanced relationship!
Steve — I don’t think moving for someone you love is the same as handing your “happiness basket” to them. A lot depends on what happens when she moves there — finds a job or volunteers, makes her own friends, etc.
Edgar — That’s the give and take of relationships (or, good ones!) I’d absolutely move to Austin or Marfa!
VJ — Yikes! Didn’t mean to diss your hometown. Sacrificing for kids? That’s a no-brainer; we brought them here, we need to do our job. We tend to be a little more reluctant to sacrifice for the one we say we love, but I think only if it feels like we’re the only one doing the sacrificing. And, how do you “know” Canada’s “better”?

I lived in Canada for a bit & graduated from one of their finer Uni’s. And nearly every social & economic index we might name puts them ahead of us. Except in military expenditures. But actually sacrificing for love, it’s as common as it’s unheralded & unrecognized & under appreciated. But it’s done the world over. Every second of every day. We’d be sunk quickly w/o it. Cheers, ‘VJ’
