Where to move? Two-city couple tries to decide
Beth Green and fiancé Pete Jenior have a housing dilemma -- one that many folks in this region have faced.
She works in Washington. He works in Baltimore. Where should they live?
D.C. is off their list -- not only for price reasons, but because Jenior works longer hours than Green.
"He can't have a really long commute because he'd never be around," said Green, 29, an attorney. "So the two options are, I have a long commute or we live in the middle."
They'd really like to hear from people who have been there, done that. What upsides and downsides do you see for a D.C./Baltimore couple living in Baltimore or its southern suburbs?
For Green and Jenior, 27, it's not just about commute. They like city life -- he lives in Federal Hill and she's in Ridgely's Delight. But they're thinking of starting a family during the five years or so they plan to live in the home they buy, and they wonder if they'd be better off in the suburbs.
It's another oft-tread subject in the "where should we live" discussions that people around the region have every day, so I figured some of you would have thoughts to share.
