Sounds to me like you have a gal that wants to go. What you waiting for? Get on with it.
My gal an I met when I was living on a 26' Grampian. She has 2 kids so it was even more of a thinking procedure when it came time to make the move. Great gal, Great kids so I told her what I was doing (going sailing) and she said immediately, Could she come.. We kept the Grampian for several years and I moved into a house. Ugh. When the time was right (5 years ago) we sold the house and the Grampian, bought a 60' cutter and are heading out southbound late this summer.
We have lived aboard (all 4 of us) for 5 years now and are very happy and content. BOTH kids are heading offshore with us (girl 18 and boy 16).
What I had to do was slow down my dream for a little bit to accommodate what my gal needed (and deserves). Yes, we have a big boat, everyone has their own room and it had to be a sailboat. That was the only criteria I had. Everything else was up to her.
We are putting final touches on her this winter and heading up Vancouver Island in June, around to Uclulet, then Mexico and beyond.
It's the best "waiting" time I have ever had.
You got the girl.. And the time. Have you got the money? (I can show you how to get that too - PM me) Doesn't have to take much. $1,000 a month if your really frugal and like anchoring. $2,500 a month if you're liking a bit more out of your cruise. There are lots of places you may not even be able to spend that much.
Get out here and have fun. And thank your lucky stars that you found a gal that WANTS to do what you do.
There are basically 2 rules to follow..
1) Don't sweat the small stuff
2) It's all small stuff.
That's what life is all about.
