People read that guide, and think they'll have no trouble. Then they don't get proof that they asked their employer to transfer them or allow telecommute (no attempt to preserve employment). No mention of the reason for the move in the letter of resignation (UI is about the reason you quit at the time you quit. Not the reason you made up after you are denied to try to get UI because you've been out of work for two months in the new location and are starting to hurt). They quit work early to pack and plan the move (quitting early is disqualifying and the purpose of the UI is preserve the family unit, not so you can save a buck not hiring movers). In your case, you wouldn't even have a wedding planned at the time of your application for UI.
