Hello Jeff & welcome.
My Mum is from Wales. My Dad met her when he went down there to work. When the job was over, he returned to the Midlands.
After that, and until Mum moved up here to marry Dad, he used to go down, on the train, at weekends, to see her, and she would come up to Birmingham, during her holidays, to see him.
It worked perfectly well for them.
A few months isn't very long, if this is the real thing.
