My husband and I have been TOGETHER since April, but married since the end of May. We are expecting a baby by the end of March. Since we have been married, we have been living in Mississippi, where economy SUCKS. Absolutely no jobs around here. He's originally from Texas and he LOVES roughnecking. He's worked for Big Dog, Halliburton, and a few others. He's tried talking me into going back to Texas with him, and he's sooo sweet because every time, he gives up the argument for me. Thing is, I would love to. BUT, then I start thinking about my family here and my baby girl.. I really don't want her to grow up without her family in her life! And, I'm terrified that we're going to get out there and wind up stranded with the hopes of him finding a job. Either that, or when they lay off AGAIN, we'll have nowhere to go!! Someone PLEASE tell me. What do I do in this situation?! I want to make this major sacrifice for MY little family, but I am so scared!
