Chicago Tribune looks into how couples deal with moving.

It's said that when a couple is committed to a relationship, nothing can stand in the way of making it work. But what happens to the pair when a job forces one of them into moving?

The Chicago Tribune investigated this question by asking several couples how they worked out their relationship when moving plans got in the way. Just as people differ, so did their solutions, as some moved with their significant other, and some adjusted to a long-distance relationship by going to visit their boyfriend or girlfriend in the city they relocated to whenever they could.

Whatever decision two people come to, Peter Pearson of the Couples Institute in California told the paper that a negotiated agreement has to be reached if the relationship is going to survive.

Pearson went on to list several things couples should remember when talking about moving plans, such as what insecurities someone has about relocating, having compassion for the other person's feelings and not "caving in" on a decision to avoid confrontation, as that may bring resentment.

According to the Center for the Study of Long Distance Relationships, couples living in different regions are separated by 125 miles, on average.
