Moving with Family Guide: My Spouse Is Not Fond of Moving

My Spouse Doesn’t Want to Move

Moving can often put strain on a marriage, especially if your spouse does not really want to move. If this is your situation, then there is no substitute for open and honest communication, from when you choose movers to the end of your moving day. You and your partner must decide together if this is the right decision for your family.

Try drawing up a list of pros and cons. Discuss each and every one in detail. Be careful not to pass off any item as unimportant. This list may help you find the reason for the hesitation in moving. If you discover the reason, then discuss what can be done to resolve the issue. Opening this frank and honest dialogue about your relocation concerns will be critical for a successful partnership.
