How many times do you and DH plan on moving? Are you in your "forever" home?
No! Actually we both dislike where we live, but we're here because of our jobs. My husband plans to "retire" in 2011 or so, and then we will move to the country. I can't wait!
We'll most likely remain there until decide to downsize, unless we move for family (our parents are getting older and may need help) or financial (we can't see living in a place with high taxes/cost of living after we are no longer bringing in the bucks, and would move to cut costs) reasons.

You and me both! Or at least the places where I have chosen to live! We'll be moving when this house sells, and hope to find at least a semi-perm house/ property. We're aiming for something that needs work with a good chunk of property so that we can add on in time and still have a decent sized yard. But who knows!
Right now we live in a 2-bdrm, 1-bath 1200 sq. ft. home. By the end of the summer, we hope to have our renovation complete (or almost done). By then, we should have a 4-bdrm, 3-bath, 2800 sq. ft. home. This is definitely our forever home.

I'm not a big believer in "forever homes", because our lives or the neighborhood could always change. I could see us moving at least once or twice more until we retire.
Ditto this exactly. I love my current house, but wish we had a bigger yard. We have a quarter acre, which is a lot in Denver, but I want a big yard with trees that don't have to be tied up to stand.
