Moving away from adult kids, grandkids.
by Clay, Charleston, SC
I am about to retire at 65. Lost my wife of 44 years in 2018, after decades of illness.
I remarried this year, thrilled about it, we knew each other as children, she moved from FL to SC to live w/me until I retire. I've got two adult kids in SC, she has elderly parents & three adult kids in FL.
We happily agreed in retirement to move about halfway between our two families buying a home in the process in north Florida, home state for both of us and where my brother & his wife live, who is my new wife's sister.
I will make the 4 hour drive back to SC often to see my kids and three grandkids. Question: Who has ever moved away from your adult children? How did you manage it?
