Long distance relationships never work. You have that dream job in Boise and your girlfriend gets her dream job in Kalamazoo, what are you going to do? Aside from hanging yourself because you live in Idaho and Michigan you try to make the relationship work, eventually the distance is just too much to overcome, and the relationship dies.
I guess the key to the long distance relationship is to never grow older than ten years old and to live somewhere where people want to visit. I mean if my wife's friend lived in Boise or Kalamazoo we would probably never visit them and the kids would never be so close. I wish all of our fiends lived closer so our kids could play all the time but unfortunately that's not the case. It's nice to know though that despite the distance the kids can have BEST friends wherever we go.
