Would you do this for love?

For a person you loved deeply, would you be willing to move to a distant country, knowing there would be little chance of seeing your friends or family again? For me it would have to be a really profound love. My family is very important to me and I find it hard to imagine being so far away from them. However, if the love was strong enough, my heart wouldn't really leave me a choice but to follow my love. At least I think so. I've never had to make this decision. What do you guys think?

Like you said it would have to be a profound love. My family is important to me too. My sister who lives in florida who I miss dearly. she is always bugging me to move down there. I keep saying It is a nice place to visit but wouldnt want to live there. Besides I like the changing of the seasons. I see how see is missing our family and I just could not do it. Her moving to florida is another story.

I have mnever faced this problem although my husband and I originally came from different states of Australia. Before we were married we agreed that we would be a family unit, and our parents/siblings etc extended family. When it came time for us to get our own place, we chose where we would live and of course neither family was happy, although we were. LOL Our son is currently involved with a young lady from another country, and although he has returned home temporarily they are still in daily contact. She knows that he wants to settle down here in Australia, and if the relationship survives the separation and reunion in about 6 months, then she has said that yes she will come here for a look and is prepared to move here for him. I like the girl already. :) He knows that when he finally settles down, his father and I will move to be near them - close enough so we are there if needed but far enough away not to be on the doorstep. Some people would make that move, and our son's young lady appears to be one. I too believe that I would have done so, because of the deep committment my husband and I have to each other.

If I were already married and it was a decision made as a couple that would benefit our marriage then I would have to. I don't think I would become involved with a man that was in another country. Of course, my husband was 800 miles away from me when we got together. I guess you can never say never.

I never had to make that decision either, and I'm not sure I would want to live in another country in any event. I'm just glad I never had to make a choice.

Yes, I would move because I am married and my husband and I are partners for life. I respect and love my family and would miss them, but I have my own life now. I would have no second thought about going where he wanted to be.
