I decided to make a major career change, and go back to school here, in a program that is hard to find at many other schools. So, when DH got back we decided to stay here while I finished. We can afford to both go to school & not work, and there are some other benefits as well... it's just that none of them involve our social life, especially given our recent choices.
Where did you move here from, if you don't mind me asking?
