Help!!! Move to Atlanta or stay in NJ? My extended family in Atlanta and low cost of living but better opportunities and friends in NJ. I am starting a FT remote job and currently a family with 2 kids. Need a desi perspective. All points say move to Atlanta but wife is not convinced.

What is your wife stuck on ??

Kpmg Lol!! Show her how far your money is going to go in Atlanta. You can make friends here plenty of desis here. I can bet you the only thing Atlanta can't offer is better is bragging rights that you live 2 hours from NYC actually scratch that we are 1.5 hours by flight. Lower cost of living better weather great food.

Atlanta is sooo much cheaper. And family is really special in this time. You can always visit NJ and opportunities are remote a lot these days ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Those opportunities come with higher taxes as well and eventually you may make less than Atlanta … friends you can make in Atlanta as well but not the extended family in NJ

I am trying to make the exact opposite move. Good luck!
