Most stories are about the kids moving away from parents, but I'd like to know the opposite scenario. Daughter is 28, lives with her boyfriend. We've always lived within a mile of each other. Now parents want to scale down to a smaller house in a 55+ community, but it would be a 45-minute drive separating us. Daughter doesn't like 'change' and may be quite unhappy her parents would even think of moving from the home she loves. Would she be unreasonable to want us to stay? Would we be selfish to want to go? I fear in the future she will marry and have a child and that 45 minutes would "get in the way" of seeing our grandchild grow up on a daily basis. Any comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, moms!
