Hate This Place

In 2010 my mother had talked us into moving to an island in Alaska. I pictured it as a dream, but it is not. Yes we are doing much better finacialy, but I do not like it. It is a beautiful place to be, but it rains 265 days a year, gets maybe a week or two of nice weather in August including sunshine, and the only eay out is by plane or fairy. I feel like I dont fit in and I am abolished because I am not native or have lived here my whole life. People are not very friendly and I just cant take it much longer. My husband and I talked about moving here but now he says I talked him into it and now I want to leave. ( he loves it here) I am half way of asking for a divorce so that he does not have to leave and I can go. I feel guilty for asking him to leave becasue he is in his fourties and loved his job. I am currently in school and I desperatly want to transfer as soon as I can. I dont want to split from him, but I dont know what else to do. I made a huge mistake by comming up :(

I am in the same boat. I have been with my girlfriend for three and a hand years and moved to the city she lives in to be with her. It's truly awful and I haven't been able to make friends in the two and a half years that I've been here. I want to move home because I know I'd be happier there but I don't want to leave her behind. Even though my unhappiness drags us both down.
