What if I fly back many times a year to visit and spend a week at a time with him? See details in my next post below.
Sorry, for me this does not cut it.
Your dad coes first.... That is right and that is God's way.
Admittedly you say he may not like it at first.
You say he was not much of a father.
Well, my friend, neither was mine. But I was there for him, as I am not my mother. But this is not about e.
Put the shoe on the other foot. What if you move to South Carolina and then in a few years you are not well but your kid moves across the country again
and has to make up their mind do they stay with their spouse or move back to be closer to you. How would you feel?
You know the right thing to do is stay near your dad.
If you need to work 3 jobs just to stay in S CA move across to NV and commute. Or downgrade your housing, or move dad and step mom in with you and ask for a little assistance from them.
Wanting to retire is understandable but this is not the reason to do it at this time
As to your wife.... Perhaps it would be best for both of you to talk to your pastor and get some advice rather then on here where we all are known for totally opposite opinions
