It has always been a dream of mine to live abroad, so I consider myself incredibly lucky to have a career that will allow me to do just that. Currently the only spanner in the works is that my partner is not quite as keen and has some reservations. Unlike myself, he is not well travelled and has only left Europe to visit New York (and that doesn't really count, in my books). For me, the more exotic the location the better... I want to be out of my comfort zone and I want adventure. He would prefer Europe, which I know is only for a fear of the unknown. Do any teaching couples have any advice? How did you manage to reconcile over which posts to apply for or accept? Were you on the same page from the start or did someone win out? Any advice on where might be a happy medium that could suit both of us? I don't want to cause resentment or bitterness between us, but would equally rather not have to make a decision between career move and relationship.
