Family.....

I'd like to know....
After we've all moved, and started our new lives with significant others, spouses, etc....

What do you say to well-meaning family members who constantly ask you "When are you moving back??"

I've started a new life two years ago with my American husband, and we've just had our first child. Now it seems my family feels it's their RIGHT to have me closer to them, since there's a child involved and all...I've tried saying politely "No, we're happy where we are..." and it always comes up next conversation online or over the phone....

Do you get these same guilt-trips? How do you handle them?

I don't, I haven't moved yet but although I haven't they have to see taht you are your own person and now that you are here with your husband it's you two not them and you two just you two. They need to see that and if they love you, they will suport you for what you decide not what they do.

Hope it works out!
