I grew up in the city & could never imagine myself livng in the country. I often wondered how & why anyone would want to. A few years back my husband (he’s from a small town) wanted to move to a smaller town.
I agreed but never thought I would make it. Today, life is good & I can’t imagine living in the city. Our town is starting to grow,but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We have a mall about 10 miles away, which I seldom go to. I say go for it.

My husband has a potential job offer in a small town. He hasn’t been
given the salary amount yet but only the benefits. The area is quite
low cost and is in a small town of $5,000 with not much around it for
an hour to an hour and a half away.
We could get a house for half the
amount our own home is worth. We could use the equity in our home to
either pay off my husband’s private school loans and put the remainder
toward a house. We still need to visit the area and find out more.
would like to hear from people who live in small towns and see how they
like it. I am from a suburb of 120,000 and have a metro area 15 minutes
away. It would be a big change.
