I have a girlfriend but no kids, and my 15 min. commute feels so tedious every morning because it's a very short distance but has traffic. My school last year was 5 mins. away, so I guess I'm spoiled! With that said, I'm OK with the longer commute because it's a better school. Also, I'd be willing to push my commute to 30-40 mins. if it means being able to rent an actual single family home or at least townhouse (impossible in the area I currently live in).
