First off, I will mention that I absolutely love my job, and the company/family I work for. I have been here for just over three years, and they have treated me more than fair ever since I started. I've had annual reviews since I start working here, and I have gotten a pretty solid raise each time. First raise (90 day review) - 7.7% Second raise (after the first year)- 10.7% Third raise raise (after the second year)- 9.7% I currently live in Harrodsburg, and they are asking me to move to London. Granted, its only 1.5 hours away, but it would still require me uprooting my life and moving. They love my work ethic and experience, and they want me at the busier store so that I can help the company make more money. Moving would entail more responsibility for me, and a whole lot more of a workload. I have checked around at different apartments in London, (which by the way is nearly impossible to find a place that will allow a small dog) and rent prices are not going to be an issue. It is actually only $10 more per month for the complex I liked verses what I am paying now. Here is the kicker. Marriage is on the table with my girlfriend. We are talking about getting married as soon as next summer. She is a hair dresser. If she uproots her life and moves to a different city, it will be catastrophic for her business. She will be starting from the ground and kissing the last 5 years of her hard work building up her business goodbye. Now, I know it is not my companies problem to supplement her lost income with a higher income for me. I have, however, made to known to my boss that her loss of income is my biggest concern. Today, he hit me with a number for my potential move. If I move - 7% increase. If i took that, and she moved down next summer, we will be more than kind of struggling. I don't feel like I can logically accept that low of a raise when I have to look at what she will lose in the coming years. Again, I know that is not my companies problem to deal with. Its mine. That is why I am seeking advice. From my standpoint, what would be a fair increase that I should ask for? I don't want to get laughed at or have my company look down on me because "I think I'm worth so much". I would like it to be a little more comfortable for us in the beginning while she builds her clients back up in the new city, but I know I can't put that burden on my company. I would just like a little more than 7%. Thoughts?
