You aren't selfish, because you want the whole family together, and he didn't consult you before making a big decision. I feel for you. Mine is
military, and looking to retire as soon as he can get the paperwork done. We'll be where you have been already soon enough; hunting him a new and
hopefully better-paying job, in some new location. I have told him, I don't care what he does, as long as it pays the bills, we have enough money to
enjoy life for a change, and he can handle the work.
I can understand your husband disliking the one job, but taking one that splits the family seems extreme. The college kids, you could move away from,
but a teen in school, active in sports, is a bigger consideration. That said, he could relocate as well. What I would do is check the area where
you'd have to move, and see how things look. Talk to the younger son, and see how he feels. Maryland.....not a place I would choose myself!
That's an issue, too - where the family lives needs to be a place you all can handle living.
It's encouraging that he's looking for work closer to you. Hopefully, God willing, he can find something that will pay enough and keep you
together. Praying for all of you.
