My family is moving from southern california to st. george utah. i want to move there as well to be close to my family, as well as raise a family there someday. the place is beautiful, schools are awsome, and people are friendly. my girlfriend is in her first year of nursing school. we estimate she has between 1.5-2 years left. its possible, but bery hard, for her to get a transfer to the school by where we would be living. she however, refuses to move untill schooling is done. i love her, and i am willing to say untill she is done with school, and then move to utah. the problem is, the hous i could get now for 120,000 will be much more expensive in 2 years, and i wont be able to afford the down payment. i want to go now, get said home, and have a better life than i do here. the problem is that she WILL NOT go untill school is over. so my options are... A. move to utah -> buy house -> maintain a long-distance relationship. and from what i am told, "long-distance relationship" is an oxymoron, that they simply dont work. and given that she is 19, and im 20, the temtation is there. B. stay in CA -> rent out cabin in the mountains from family for cheep -> buy house in UT and rent it to family (make some $) -> move into house in 2 years when gf's schooling is done. now the cabin is the big "what if" of this option, as i dont know if they will rent it to me. C. break up with her -> buy house in utah -> go to school -> find someone else (or wait 2 years and see if we are ment to be) but i love her, and i WAS planning on proposing in august, but with all this stuff going on, that wont be happening D. stay down here -> work 2 jobs to pay the rent -> have no time for school or my relationship.....ah fuck, it just hit me while i was typing it... even if i stayed, i would be so busy struggling to make ends meet (apartments are so expensive, and i refuse to live with her), i wouldnt have time for her anyway. so the only real options i can see are B and C. B being the most desireable, and also the most unlikely. can anyone offer advice... im really really lost and scared.
