RE: Gf Wants To Move. What Should I Do?

Thanks for the replies. Another issue is both of us have parents living here in the hometown. Hers are in their early 50s. Mine are in their early 70s. I also have a sister with special needs. I kinda like the idea of being in the same town as them so I can take care of them in their later years.
