Transitioning to a long distance relationship
June 21, 2014 2:09 AM Subscribe
My husband will be moving from where we live in the NYC area to Boston for work for a minimum of three to five years and I'll be staying here. I'm looking for suggestions on how to transition to a long distance relationship and then how to maintain it. Best practices, things that worked, things that didn't work, and any ideas for how to survive a difficult transition.

We've been together for a bit less than a decade, married for a couple of years. We are doing this because I have my dream job here and he's been offered his dream job there. Neither of our jobs lends itself to telecommuting.
I'm pretty apprehensive about this and am hoping for good advice from the hivemind.
