It's amazing how making the wrong decision helps you realize the right one: yesterday we decided to remain in our small town for another six months. Although I felt a degree of relief at that decision (job stability, not having to sell our home, support network) I didn't feel a peace about the decision. Fast forward to this morning when I received some great responses and advice after posting this thread:
Reading those replies from seasoned SIers made it all clear. We thought we'd blown our chance yesterday when my H declined a position. A quick phone call later revealed the job had not yet been offered to the other applicant, and was his if he wanted it. He accepted, and this time, I'm at peace.
We're moving on!!

Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

I feel you and your H are making a wise decision for your marriage. That really is the priority.
I had read your earlier thread and agreed with the members advising you to get out of the school/job, whatever. I am so glad that their responses to your post got you to rethink what you and your H were doing.
I am glad that you're at peace. Just think, no more having to deal with OW. Woot woot!

In following your story, I, too, thought moving would be better for you and your H.

Good for you two. I hope te move gives you the peace you are looking for.
We will be moving to another state as soon as our house sells. It is scary to leave your home town, but we need a fresh place that is not tainted. My H already is working there and out of a home office.
Good luck and I hope the excitement transcends every part of your life.

I think that your decision is a wise one that you will not regret!
6 months post Dday we packed up and moved out; moved 1600 miles away. Best move we ever made. Instantly eliminated many, many triggers. It made R, and my life, easer.
Good luck to you.
ME: 54 BS
HIM: 61 WH

in R 3.5 years and it's working but he is putting 200% into it (as he should) to make it right again.
The truth hurts, but I have never seen it cause the pain that lies do.

Woohoo! What great end of year news! I'm even a bit jealous about your fresh start.
