Just wanted to add my welcome to our forum.
It sounds like your wife is handling it pretty well, all things considered. I guess you could proceed with this LDR person, but I would just do so cautiously.
I am glad if reading various posts/threads here is of help. One can never 100% predict the future, but it's still a good idea to learn from other people's experiences.
Hope you enjoy your stay.
