My boyfriend wants me to leave my family and friends for a new life in Canada

DEAR DEIDRE: I LOVED Canada when I visited with my boyfriend – but he wants to move there.

I’m very close to my parents and always planned to stay here, raising a family with them close by. I worry about their care as they get older.

I’d miss them terribly and the thought of having children they can’t spend quality time with would break their hearts.

I am 26 and my boyfriend is 29. We have been together for six very happy years.

I have a great job but my partner has gone back to the same job in retail he was sick of before we went travelling for three months.

Will I be miserable in the long run having to sacrifice my family and my career? Or do I cut ties and let go of our otherwise perfect relationship?

My boyfriend means the absolute world to me and I can’t really imagine my life without him.

DEIDRE SAYS: There is a lot to tie you to your home – good family relationships and a good job.

If you do go, resentment might build and that is never good in a relationship.

Listen to your instincts. If you really don’t want to go, you must dig in your heels and tell your boyfriend this move is not for you.

If you are curious, however, why not give yourself a year or so to try the Canadian lifestyle?

You can always come home if you still see your future back home. But ultimately only you can make this decision.
