Reasons To Move

i have a sister in a law that moves every couple of months. in the last three years she has made several drastic moves. she is not even financially fit to be doing so. i can understand if you are wealthy, but she is poor. every time she moves she ends up in a shelter in some different state. now she is moving again from las vegas, simply because she doesn't like it. she has moved from state to state because of the weather. what are good enough reasons to move? some people may think that if you are not happy somewhere, you should move if you are able. i say it's irresponsible, when you have kids and no money just to pick up and move at the drop of a dime. would you move because you didn't like the place or the weather, when you didn't have any money? i may be wrong about this.

Weather now days is the pits most anywhere. I think it is very irresponsible when you have kids to keep moving. Bad for the kids. No stability. I feel badly for them. They need a stable environment in which to thrive. The best reason to actually move is if you have a good job offer.

I agree, with kids this is a very irresponsible thing to do. Shame on her.

My sister is the worse. And all the crap each time she moves. I think she even packs the trash to move.

at least she doesn't leave all her stuff behind for someone else to have to worry about, like my MIL. she has done that to us twice already.

i am a lot like your sister-in-law. i like to move around a lot and change my life and lifestyle every now and then. i do it mostly to keep life interesting but i sometimes wonder if there is something deeper to it. i am not wealthy and sometimes i can not even afford the drastic move or big change in my life but i do it anyways. sometimes its because i think the move or change will benefit me and i will be able to alter my fortunes by this move. other times its to run away from other problems in my life that i feel are holding me back. we dont really get to decide whats a good enough reason for another person to move. maybe the weather effects her moods or her body (my moms hands swell in rainy weather and my grandmas knees hurt when its too dry). i have picked up and moved across the country, acorss town or even to china within a week of making plans. its all in the adventure and spontaneity. other people, like my little sister, are against travel or change of any kind. she doesnt like to even change her room around let alone move across the country. she is the type that will stay in this town happily never leaving her house. she would relate more with you.

Moving from home to home isnt all that bad. But if you know youll end up in a shelter it sure is. Bad, bad, bad...

well, if they decided to move again on their income, that is where they will certainly end up.

There is only a couple reasons that I can think of that would be suitable reasons for relocating our families. The first reason that I can think of is if there is a job opportunity that is better than any opportunities that we might have in the area that we are currently living in. The other reason that I can think of that would be a good reason to relocate is because of the failing health of family members. For example, if my mother was feeble and I lived far away from her, I would relocate my family so that I would be able to be closer to my mother to help her out.

I wouldn't probably move out if I can't afford maybe she is not happy with the community she's living in, far from her work or much worst she is avoiding somebody. Not to think negative but maybe she was hiding something or someone since why she's going to move out if she doesn't have enough cash? security wise that's not a good step

I would not move if there is no good reason to justify my moving. I did move three times in my life time and moving house is no joke for me. The packing and unpacking is really a headache for me . The first two times were due to the land lord wanted back their house . The final time was because I bought a bigger house as the one we were staying is too small to accomodate my family. Now, I am blessed and satisfied with this house which is fully paid. So, I am not going to move anywhere else. .

Sure makes little or no sense to me. Why would she keep moving from good places and end up in a shelter?

I might move if I didn't like the place or weather if I don't have children. with children, no way, because their well being will come first. I say it's irresponsible too, when you have kids and no money. It really not fair for the children. At least she need to prepare on the money first before she dragging the kids into unpleasant situation.

....and this she never does. she never plans and she always ends up in a new place with no money. this is why she eventually has to end up in a shelter.

Are you sure that your SIL isn't getting evicted from these places and not telling you? I don't believe that anyone should feel forced to stay somewhere where they are not happy, especially when they don't own the home. But if you find that you are not happy anywhere, then it's time to see if the problem lies somewhere else. I would be careful with moving kids from school to school and putting them in situations where they have to keep adjusting and making new friends. It's not fair to them. But if she is getting evicted, she has no choice but to move.

she is not getting evicted. she is just choosing to move and she is putting her own mother in a bad spot because of it. every time she gets somewhere she finds reasons not to like the place. then, she tries to fight to come back to the place she fought so hard to get out of. thank goodness her child is not of school age yet. she better get that stuff out of her system, before she does.

Maybe she was a romany in her past life and couldn't settle. Some people just cannot settle, no matter where they go, they always find a reason to move on, they get itchy feet and they can't stand to be in the same place for longer than they can. I stayed in the same house for 27 years then between the age of 28 and 34 I moved 6 times! Mainly because of my ex partner's but it's so stressful moving, it's one of the top stressful things you can do in your life, so I can't see the attraction. Maybe your sister in law is used to it now.

For me, I would move if the environment is not so favorable to me but at the same time, I try as much to consider the color of my bank account. I think in her own case, she should try as much to adapt to adverse weather conditions.

well, it seems as though she is forced to stay where she is at, because she has no finances. no un worked for money is going to come her way, besides a 600 dollar a month social security check. oh wait!......her current man earns about the same a month.
