My husband and I moved to Atlanta a few months ago because he wanted to be closer to his dad. I do not have a problem with that, but we are arguing about where to buy a home. We are currently in an apartment in Midtown and he wants to stay close to here, but I am not happy about this at all.
The first thing I cannot deal with is the fact that there is a lot of traffic at peak times of the day. I know it is like this all over the place, but it is worse when you live in the center of a major city. I want to leave work and be able to get home in a reasonable amount of time. Nevermind the fact that we have to pay a ton for our parking spaces.
Another issue U have is the fact that we are planning to have a family at some point. This makes me yearn for a place that is more warm and family-like. One of the suburbs would give me the kind of feel I am looking for. The last thing I want to do is buy a place now and we grow out of it sooner rather than later. I think being proactive is a better way to approach the situation.
I am going to talk to my husband about this again tonight and I am hoping that we can reach some kind of compromise. I am willing to stay directly in the city as long as we don’t have to live In Midtown. I know this may not sound like I am giving much, but I was raised in a small town and this is definitely a sacrifice I am making for him.
