What do you do for work?! It's tough to find neurosurgery jobs in the middle of nowhere. What does your wife do? Multiple women I have dated have been high level executives at companies. When the topic of long term plans came up it was an issue. Our career prospects didn't always line up geographically. All of us went to school for a long time and invested in our careers. We want to provide for potential children. Even moving to the fourth or fifth largest city in America would compromise some people's careers. It's a tough economy. People have to do what they have to do. I'm not going to ask a woman to abandon her education, career, world travel, and $150+K/yr just because I like to walk down country trails every once in awhile. And I'm not going to tell junior he can't go to Harvard because daddy doesn't like to sit in traffic.
