Seems like we’ve found a support group for Aussies missing home
I too am in a similar position - have been here 17 years, married a Brit and have 2 kids. We’ve always talked of trying life over there ‘one day’ but the goalposts keep moving, and my husband really won’t consider it because of his work. He’s said he’ll go when he has had enough with his current career but I’m mindful that that may be too late as there will become a point where it is difficult to move the kids at crucial points of schooling. I get frustrated that his economic prospects trump me seeing my family.
However at the same time, I am also fearful however that I won’t like it myself now - and it is such a big responsibility to move a happy family to the other side of the world. Very interesting to hear the perspective above in terms of someone who has tried it and is thinking of coming back.
So I don’t have any advice I’m afraid, just sympathy. I do think it is worse currently due to the inability to travel. What are his reasons for not wanting to go? Would he consider something different in the future?
More than happy to go for a coffee and chat, even just so that you have someone on moan to! Just PM me.
