My wife plans to graduate in a few months. I have 1-2 years left before I defend and graduate. I'd like to move away with my wife so we can stay together.
My work is entirely on a computer, so working remotely is entirely feasible. I have my own funding, so I do not need to stay in order to TA for pay.
I typically meet once every 1-2 weeks with my primary advisor and "secondary advisor" (a research scientist who also mentors me and who frequently works more closely with me than my advisor). When I first began working with my primary advisor, I mentioned that I may need to work remotely for my final year. He said he didn't like the idea in general, but that he understands that life happens, and that we'd figure it out when the time came.
The time has come, though I wouldn't move away for another two months.
How should I breach the topic with my advisor(s)?
This question is extremely relevant, but differs in that it asks this question for "extensive periods", whereas I'm asking about working remotely permanently. Several answers for that question involve staying away for progressively longer periods of time, but I'd prefer to not pay two rents.
