Husband doesn't want to move for wife
My husband and I have been married for 18 months. Through this time we have been married, I have been the one who pays for most if not all of our living expenses. My husband works in Real Estate and is just starting out so it has been tough for him to help contribute. I have recently graduated with my Master's and have been looking at jobs that are about 7 hours away from where we live. The new job would increase our income by roughly $40,000 a year! I feel I am being underpaid at my current job and am really excited to start a new job and move to a new place. My husband does not want to move and wants to continue working on his career and using his connections since this is the town where he has grown up. He family lives here and all his friends live here. He doesn't not have any intent on ever moving. I am not sure if I should move where there is a better job and it can provide more for us, if he does not want to come with me. Currently we are living in my condo and I would have to rent out the entire condo so I'm not sure where he would live. He is okay with me flying home for the weekends but I don't think I can afford that if I'm paying rent somewhere else. I am not happy being the one who is providing for both of us right now but I'm not sure what else to do. He has been looking around for new job and had one for a few months until he was laid off. He is saying if I move then I am leaving him. Is it wrong to move for a new career if my husband doesn't want to go?
