Long distance marriage is heartbreaking - how to deal?
My significant other and I have been in a long distance relationship for 2 year (4 years in total together), and recently got married. We’re still living in different countries because I have a job here, he has a job there and is hoping for a promotion next year AND feels responsible for his father’s wellbeing (who’s depressed and has been living with him and off his costs for the past year). In his culture, taking care of your elders is very important, but I hate how his father (who hasnt accepted me) and his wish for a promotion are keeping us apart. If I move to him, we could only afford for me to live in the same house with his father, which would be awkward to say the least. On other hand He doesnt want to leave there for another year, because of his father and his work. Being apart is breaking me up, yet I see no other option. What can we do?
