My husband has been offered a transfer to another city, over 1800 miles away. I've just re-established myself in the workforce, and have a good job. I will be earning half the income we bring in. Tonight we had a huge fight and he told me that if I can't see how the move will help his career, he will relocate without me. The conversation was angry and is not over. I know it signals the end of our marriage. I feel like there has to be some kind of compromise, but I am talking to a stone.
