It sounds like the job you have now is your dream job though? Why is his dream job more important than yours? The money issue aside (and 10 years is not that quick - if you have children in the next couple of years it sounds like he will miss out on them being young) is there any reason he couldn't find his dream job where you are?

What's the plan when kids come along? Are you considering leaving your job then?

I wouldn't go. It is a fantastic opportunity but it will be at the cost of your job and your DH's spare time.

I would definitely not give up a job I loved that much. So few people love their jobs, it sounds like a keeper. As PP says, your dream job counts as much as DH's does

Let Dh chase his dream.
The additional money you mention can fund the study you can do to secure your dream job in the future.
Also, if there is any possibility of management changing hands at your work, don't assume that any future employer would consider your lack of qualifications a non-issue (regardless of the fact that you are a proven product). My sister discovered this the hard way.

7 years ago we had an opportunity to move from new Zealand to Kalgoorlie and were given a similar two-three week time frame.
At the time dh was head chef of a restaurant on $13.00 an hour working 60 hours a week and I was a 3rd year hairdressing apprentice on $8 I still don't know how we managed to live on the wages we were on and 7 years down the track we love our lives here and don't regret the decision one bit.
After 12 months we brought our own home and yes when nickel dropped in price dh lost his job we have since recovered from that 6 months he wasn't earning.
He started out chefing here only for the first 3 months and then got into the mines and has worked in or around them for the last 7 years.
I would do it all over again If I was given the opportunity and although our friends thought we were crazy at the time they can now see how much better off we are for doing it.
My younger brother has since made the move from nz to western Australia and he to thinks it was the best thing he has done for his family.
I wish you all the best in making your decision I know it can be a tough one but only you and your dp can make it😊

It didn't say it was his dream in the OP... so that kinda changes things.
I really have no idea. Someone is going to have to give up their dream, or you'll have to live seperately. Doesn't sound like there's any "win" to this situations. Sucks.

Can he get a similar job in the city where you live?
Can you take 6 or even 12 months unpaid leave to see if you like living in the new town?
Have you looked into whether you can get similar work in the new town? Can you study so that you can get the qualifications to carry on in the same profession as you are now working?
Money is great but it isn't much fun spending it by yourself because your husband is working all the hours god gives.
