Shutterstock | 2780032

After 21 years of marriage, a wife is refusing to move for her husband's job. The couple moved frequently during the husband's time in the navy, and even after he left, they continued to move for his career. However, after finally settling down in a new state and finding a good job, the wife is not willing to uproot her life again. Her husband is pushing her to move for a new job opportunity, but the wife is standing her ground. She believes that she has supported her husband's career enough and that it's time for him to consider her needs. However, her husband is calling her selfish and not supportive. What do you think? AITA for refusing to move again?

Empty nesters stuck in disagreement over moving for job.
