what kind of things should we consider when assessing a job offer that involves relocating our family ?

My husband has been offered a great promotion, raise , and relocations package but it would mean moving our family, ( two teens) to another far away state. The job offers a salary that equals almost the amount that we are both currently making, but it seems like I would need to also consider that I would be giving up a great job where I work from my home about 75% of the time. I could move and not work as we are fine on the current income but then I have to consider my retirement benefits as well. How can we properly assess this job offer and make the best decision for our family? Any suggestions?
