As reported on Us Weekly, Hollywood couple Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley have left sunny L.A. in favor of the mountains of Utah.  Heigl and Kelley married in Utah and are psyched to be moving there with their one-year-old daughter, Naleigh, who they adopted from Korea.  The couple plans to spend their time between Nashville and Utah.

When couples have children, should they move out of the city in favor of a more suburban or rural area?

Cupid’s Advice:

When it comes to married life, everyone seems to think of the picturesque house in the suburbs surrounded by a white picket fence.  Though this has its benefits, it’s not a requirement for a happy family:

1. More space: If your small apartment in the heart of the city has no room for a nursery, it may be a good idea to get a bigger place where space is more affordable.  A larger living area can provide you with a smoother transition from married to family life.

2. Make an educated decision: For this move to work, both people must be on the same page.  If one wants to make the move while the other does not, there will be problems.  Spend a sufficient amount of the time talking, thinking, and doing research about it before taking out your next mortgage or signing a new lease.

3. There’s no place like home: If you decide that it’s better for you to stay where you are, that’s also a great option.  If you feel secure where you live, your family should, too.
