    I don't think it's any of their business why you want to leave your current company. Keep your answer to what motivates you in the company you're applying to.

    Did you consider honesty as an option? Everyone understands, that people have families and friends - and therefore don't like moving town for no reason.

    @Oktokolo being able to work from home town is a good but embarrassing response from what i have heard. people shift cities and live away from their wives and families just to be in their dream job/salary range

    @dotenvironment There are people who love their wifes and there are people who love their job. while it is theoretically possible to be in love with more than one partner, in practice such relationships almost always fail hard.

    Embarassing or not, honesty is one of that traits that could make you pretty attractive to an employer you actually would like working for.
