What level of commitment would you need from your partner before you would move

    What level of commitment would you need from your partner before you would move away with him/her?

    I'm speaking in terms of moving away from friends and family to a place where you don't know anyone and can't easily get back to your previous, comfortable environment. Would it take many months or years of dating, an engagement, marriage, or other factors? Why?

    If both of us sincerely like where we're heading and i would have had a second back up plan in case that it turns ugly, it shouldn't be much of a problem. No one should be stuck in one place for all time. One needs to go out there and be brave sometimes. If it's less than expected, just return to home base. It may be a very hard decision for some, it is understandable. Well, depending on your personality, do you need some changes? Something out of the ordinary? Will there ever be a right time than now? Or is it worth risking (depending to what you jeopardize by doing so)? Weigh the consequences wisely with an opened mind.

    My husband and I created a very close-knit family--something neither of us had when we were children.  There is nothing that could make me leave my children and grandchildren. 

    You cannot replace family and if at all possible, I would stay near them for the love and support only a good family can provide. If you are not close to your family and want to move--I would only move if I was married to the man and he understood me and my ties to my current location.

    I do not see the reason for moving away even though things might not turn out the way you want in your relationship. It might be hurting for the beginning stage but time does heal the pain. So, I really can't think of a good reason for move out to another place.

    It would depend on the depth of our relationship and our vision together as partners regardless of labels such as 'engaged' or 'marriage'......

    I am married with four children and I would NEVER follow my husband to a far off place. I need my family and no matter what he would know I wouldn't go with. So his decision to up and leave us would be on him. So to answer the question it wouldn't matter the level of commitment because I wouldn't go.
