When we told our parents we were relocating to the Boston, MA area after we got married, they went ballistic.
His family could do nothing but talk about the cost of living, and my parents told me about the high crime rates. I didn’t want to live in Boston, but in the Boston area. We were going to have a child, and we had already looked into Lowell, MA, which is an easy commute to Boston, where my husband had a job. Before mom could say anything, I told her that Lowell is a quiet area and great for families. I had done all my homework. The weather could be harsh, but it was harsh where we lived. As long as we had good HVAC, we would be okay all year round. My husband said he already knew about the crime rate in Lowell, and it was 20% lower than anywhere else. He said the schools were excellent. The only real drawback was the weather, but we lived in an area that was fraught with snow and rain. I found a house that had a brand new HVAC system, and it was close to the schools and parks that were highly rated for families. He told them they could continue to complain about where we were moving, but we were moving, and they had to get used to the idea. They all knew they had the option to come stay anytime they wished. A part of me wished we had issued a blanket invitation, because I was sure my brother and his sister would be here the entire time they were out of school.
