This season on Teen Mom (shut up, I know I’m obsessed, okay?), one of the young moms, Maci, moved from her hometown in Tennessee to Nashville, a few hours away, to be closer to her boyfriend. However, once she and her young son made the move, Maci’s relationship quickly fell apart. Part of the reason she and her boyfriend, Kyle, split was that he had a whole life – including a job with demanding hours – in Nashville, and she only had him. As a result, Kyle felt smothered and pressured and Maci felt ignored and isolated. However, teenagers aren’t the only people who make the decision to relocate because of a romantic relationship.
Now, Page Six reports that Carey Mulligan and Shia LeBeouf have broken up, and that Carey is moving back to her native England. On The Real Housewives of DC, Cat Ommaney moved to DC from London after a whirlwind romance with her husband Charles, only to wind up divorced when they realized their affair didn’t translate as well into married life.
Have you ever moved to another town or city for a relationship? If so, why did you do it, and was it ultimately a good decision for you?
