My boyfriend just got a job offer but the thing is I'm in a city that I have grown up in my whole life and 99% of my family is within 20 min driving distance, This job offer would take us any where from and hour too an hour and a half away from our family's, and we won't really know many people there. I don't really drive ( I'm re-learning and have to have him with me at all times).
We have a 4 month old baby together and this job could make it so I can stay home with her for longer BUT he may be working longer hours and may not always be home at night. Should I encourage him to take the job and we move or should I stay where I am?

Oh, stay where you are.
I'm sure your kid in fifteen years will be like, "Mom, I'm so glad you told Dad to move away and decided living around your family was more important, because who likes having two parents or a normal family, anyway? It was totally worth it to be around my cousins, etc, instead of you moving and being a stay at home mom and having our own family."
Oh, wait... no, she won't. You can drive the 90 minutes every week to go visit your parents/brothers/etc, and make new friends in your town and have a real family with your boyfriend, or you can take the easy comfortable route, never mind that your daughter will grow up with issues about men, since she didn't have a real father around.
