    Question Future tenses

    Dear Teachers and Native Speakers,

    I'd like to find out if there is much difference in meaning between the following sentences:

    I wonder where we'll be living ten years from now?
    I wonder where we'll live ten years from now? (I believe the sentence is grammatically correct.)

    If yes, what is the difference?

    Thank you for your help,

    4ania4

    To me, #1 implies " I wonder where our home will be"; (it may be in our present house/flat, or we may decide to move at some time in the next ten years). #2 suggests that we may may move, or have to move, in ten years' time.
