Have a deep discussion with your SO about why he wants you stay - what kind of support does he need during the year ahead? Is it something that can be provided by other means? If there are a couple tough months, can you ask to work remote during those months? If it’s general house help while he works late a lot, can you get a nanny, grocery delivery, paid housekeeper, etc.? Same with you, what about the project is enticing for you? Can you ask about or look for similar projects that are local? You can definitely make this work, just work together as a partnership to understand each other and find a solution that works the best for everyone, without one person “winning” and another “losing."
