    Wow, how I wish I had considered these things eight years ago. Every one, except for having children, came into play to my ultimate regret in my tsunami divorce. I lasted only a month before packing up and moving back home to Colorado from S. Carolina. Thank you again for your always wise and insightful advice.

    I am kind of old fashioned in that if a couple is going to buy a house or move cross-cross country I think marriage needs to be there to solidify the commitments made. However I respect those who make a different choice.

    After 19 years or marriage and 2 kids in high school, we followed my husband to Dallas for 18 months, then another move to Cincinnati. Then he left for Cleveland! I realize now that the first move was likely his ploy to leave, not thinking that I would leave my home town, friends and family to relocate to Texas. He did not want to be the bad guy and he did not have the nerve to say what he really wanted, which was to leave the marriage. So here I am, living in Cincinnati, unable to afford life in my hometown of Seattle. Yes, the cost of living is so much cheaper than Seattle, but it is not home. All the people I love other than my kids are in Washington state. My husband was a coward in not making the break 5 years ago when we moved from Seattle. I am incredibly loyal, and I did not realize what a coward my husband was. I did all I could to keep the family together, but he was not committed to me and so kids and I are surviving in Cincinnati and dreaming of friends & family, the mountains and ocean air of our hometown. I wish I knew then what I know now!
