My sons father got a job in memphis tn,we live in knoxville tn. He wants us to move there with him and start a new life but Im torn because my baby boy is so close to his 13yr old aunt which they act lije brother and sister,and is so close to his mamaw and papaw. How do I make this decision! If i move they will all be heartbroken but if i stay i will be.We've been separated for a year now but have been on and off for 8years.Please help with some advice????

Personally, I would not uproot myself for a man I was "on and off" with for years. He seems to lack commitment to you, and if you put yourself in a position where you move for him and things don't work out, you are going to have a HELL of a time being able to move back home where you appear to have a support system. The fact is, he could file to prevent you moving away again with your son, and he'd likely get it.

So no, I wouldn't move on the whim of a selfish ass who can't figure out what he wants in life. What I would do is work out a suitable compromise in the form of a visitation schedule so that your baby can spend some time with his father and have a relationship with him.
