Should You Move Due To A Relationship?

Being in love and sustaining it calls for sacrifice. Things get tougher when you must choose between remaining in your town or moving to go and live with your mate. A barrage of thoughts will bombard your mind. You will toy with ideas of whether the move will benefit you or not. You could also be on the move because a relationship has come to an end. Relocation due to divorce is fraught with numerous emotional and physical challenges and having a reputable mover work with you can help.

Before packing your belongings and moving to join or get away from a relationship, consider these tips:

Motive for moving

Before making a move, look at the real purpose. Be careful that you do not stake more on the affair at the expense of the life you have. For any romantic relocation to have a solid meaning, the following reasons should stand out:

  • Family matters: A member of your partner’s family may face a medical challenge or even die suddenly. Your mate is called upon to to take on some obligations. In such a case, it would be proper to show your support.
  • Career: Job opportunities are not easy to find. A long-awaited one may arise with better pay and benefits. Therein lays the reason for joining your mate.
  • Fresh start in life: Both of you might have gone through tough times and feel that relocation and starting afresh is the best thing. It could be the state of the economy or insecurity. Moving out and resettling elsewhere could just be perfect.

Recoiling from a divorce

After a broken relationship, the only thing on your mind is how to you can move on with your life. You might want to move to another locality to experience a change of scenery or find another job. Being closer to your parents or getting remarried are other reasons. While justifiable, moving affects parenting. If a court grants your ex-mate visitation rights, you cannot move far away with the children in your custody.

Relocation following a divorce poses the following challenges:

  • Handling children: The children must have both parents present in their lives. If you live near each other, there will be conflict and it could trickle down to the innocent souls. On the other hand, living too far apart impacts negatively on your children’s lives.
  • Custody of the marital home: The decision on who among the two of you gets to retain the house is always contentious. You may have developed a strong bond with the house, but the court decides to act differently. In that case, you have no option but to leave. Conversely, if you keep it, you might find that running the house is a different story.

If you make the hard decision of relocating to be with your lover, let the right motives be the guide. On the other hand, before you move out after a divorce, weigh the challenges you will face. Also, put your children’s interests first.
