That is a tough one. I have sort of the same thing going on, except my wife (we got married last month) lives in Mexico, a good 1.5 hour drive from my house in San Diego.

My boss and coworkers have been unbelievably understanding ever since our relationship got serious over 4 years ago. I spend about half my time in Mexico, telecommuting and doing my development from there. It helps that I have been working with the same guys since 2001 and long ago proved my worth.
I do occasionally get unsolicited job offers with promise of a considerable raise, but I feel I owe the guys and I am sure I would not have the same range of freedom with a different company.
