I figure I’ll ask this question while I’m still young-ish and have more time to prepare. There’s lots of back story to this, but basically, I feel like the cities have a really poor culture and are not the best place to raise a family. As one who would like to have children someday, I sometimes think it would be best to raise children in a rural area. I imagine it would be good for children if you can afford an acreage because it would give them lots of room to run around and you don’t have to worry too much that they’ll wander into traffic since there is none. On a personal note, I think it’s good for people to be close to nature. Does anybody here have experience living in rural areas? What difficulties are there and what’s the culture like? How can you live outside a city and still get a job that pays enough to provide for several children (Coming from a large family and being positively predisposed to children, I’d like at least 5) In regards to careers I’d like to be an accountant or an actuary. I also have an interest in the liberal arts (philosophy, theology, history) unfortunately that doesn’t feed a family.
