Discussion in 'Teaching abroad' started by the hippo, Jul 6, 2011.
I have sent you a PM.
Hi, I am in a similar situation to message above, except I am the teacher and my husband is the non teaching spouse. I would be interested to hear what views the hippo had?
Best advice I can give - get married now, before you go. You cannot legally live together if you are not married. Also if you are married she will get a visa through you, and can then get a job once she is there, for example a TA (although jobs like that aren't very well paid).
As a newly married teacher of vast experience, the last 7 overseas, I'd suggest that having a partner is a hindrance to working overseas, especially in the Middle East, as I've recently been told by a very reputable and well known agency.
