In my experience moves are always good, and I think you are at an age where it's less of a problem to move then it would be when you are older maybe? You don't have kids to consider, so really you are only limited by your imagination.
Everything is relative, so I don't think you are even suggesting moving that far, right?
It's not outwith the realms of possibilty for you both to move abroad, and in fact that's something I would suggest. It would be harder, but I am 100% sure you would have a great time, and a life changing experience. People were doing it hundreds of years ago, and it sure was harder then.
Even mention this to him, and then perhaps moving to the next state might not seem such a big deal?
