My OH has found it even more difficult as his parents have been not very supportive and my mother in law has been piling on the emotional blackmail saying they are too old to visit and how could we do this to her taking her grand children away. (they are 73 and 75 and in relatively good health).
She sobbed and wailed when it was time to leave which was very up setting for all of us. I just hope she is Ok and they will book to come out and see us in soon.
I think you have just got to think why we have all put ourselves through this in the first place. Hopefully for a better life and I am optimistic it will be. My OH is not as optimistic but we are hoping it will all work out. We have promised each other we will give it 2 years and if it does not work out for 1 of us we will return to the UK.
Just be brave and go for it. I am sure you will regret it one day if you don't.
Good to see you are going to give it 2 years, although 3 is better!!!! I think to emigrate you have to put on the selfish cap sometimes and think this is MY life and I will do what I want to do. It worked for me!!! You will always get the emotional blackmail but just ignore it. Think what a great achievement you will have accomplished by giving it a go. Good on ya!
