I saw a documentary where a woman moved from Australia to London to be with the woman she loved. would you move all that way? me,I don't know? I guess it depends if I could get a job and use all my electronics And have a satellite to see hockey. If all these things could come true,I'd move in a heartbeat.What about you?

Definitely. In a heartbeat I would. Why would you need to be able to use all your electronics? Why not sell all of them before you move and then buy new when you get there?

I still have a vcr. They don't make them anymore . Plus all my favorite movies are VHS. I love my guy but like Meatloaf sang, " I'll do anything for love , but I won't do that."

I'd be willing to bet that you could get those movies on DVD and that the picture quality would be much, much better. Not to mention the extras you get with DVDs, like deleted scenes, commentary, the ability to put up subtitles... Even if you're never in a situation where you have to choose whether or not to move to a different country, you should probably upgrade. If for no other reason than what happens if your VCR breaks and no repair person has parts to fix it anymore? Don't fight change, my dear. Embrace it. Operating a DVD player really isn't any more difficult that operating a VCR, I promise.

Theoretically, yes if I really loved them and knew other people in the country. I'm flat out too paranoid to move countries for someone for fear that after I move they would ditch me for someone else and I would be stuck in a place where I knew no one. However, practically it's impossible for me to switch countries because I need services due to my disability. The countries that have them won't allow me to immigrate and I can't move to a country that doesn't.

Funny when I thought of this post I didn't even think about the possiblity that the relationship would end. But the country I would move to would be similar to my own and the one thing I know i can do is make friends so it rally depends on work and electronics. The country is one I would love to live in anyway so if things didn't work out, I wouldn't be stuck.

I think this is a very difficult decision. Because it is hard that couples have to be apart. As time goes by, this kind of marriage is not stable. One has to give in and move to another city but it leads to another problem. That is whether he/she will like the new change or get a new a job. If they have children, the problems will be much more because they have to adjust to the new schools, too. I love China

You know me,I never would marry.And I don't want kids. But If I did have kids ,I wouldn't move. the kids have their friends and the school they know,It wouldn't be fair to up root them. Before this summer ,I wouldn't have even thought of moving but now that my love is thousands mile away And near a city I always loved ,it got me thinking.I guess I should have added that you would be moving to a city you always loved.Love affairs come and go so where you move Should be a beloved city.

That's a tough one when I have my kids and grandkids living here in the USA....I would say probably not...if they loved me they could move here.....of course I haven't been in love for a while so that would also be a deciding factor....but probably not.....not at my age.

Don't let your age get in the way! You can fall in love at any age. i agree about staying when you have kids. all their friends and their roots are here in the U.S. It would be unfair to uproot them. And in your case , they have kids of their own so you would be leaving All your family.

hey there. I would move anywhere to be with my love. My now wife moved over to the UK from Austalia to be with me. We met on the internet whilst I was in Korea and she was in Oz. We had a long diatnce relationship for a while and saw each other for only short periods. It became too much and so we made the decision to live togetehr in the UK. We married here 2 months ago and are now planning to move to Oz some time in the future. Everything is worth sacrificing once you have that perfect love! For sure!!

I did! I was from Asia and my husband resides in the UK. I would have wanted to stay in Thailand but he doesn't want to stay very far away from Italy where he is originally from. Maybe another reason that I agreed to move here is the economy. If Thailand were a better place I would have insisted that he moved there with me.

If it is for the good of the relationship i will move to my partner's place or country. Distance should not be the hindrance to make the relationship to be near and the two people. There is no reason to refuse to go to partner's place and live together.

I would definitely move country if it was for a person I loved, because I would not be able to stay at peace thinking about what she is doing if I wasn't with her, and I would be upset if I was not able to see her as much as possible.

My husband and I both did that for eachother. When he was still working in Arizona, I moved down there. We eloped there. After my 6 months were up I came home, but he had to stay in AZ until he retired. He came up here to Canada, and we had a second wedding. During the two week vacation he spent up here in Canada, he decided he liked it better up here, and we both already knew that I liked it better up here, so we decided to settle up here. This was after we both gave eachother's countries a chance, and made an informed decision together.
