No. There's no demand for my profession in the UK. It was never really an option.

We've talked about it. The reason he's moving here is becuase I have joint custody of my kids with my ex.

If for some reason his visa is denied, I'll start custody proceeding with my ex so that I we can arrange things in a way that would enable me to move there with him.

In my profession, I could make a lot more in the UK than I'm making here, so it is an option... just one that would require either uprooting my kids or... well, basically abandoning them.

Even though I'm originally FROM there, I would hesitate to move back as

  • I don't think I'd ever get used to paying bribes for everything
  • crazy admission procedures for schools (for any children born of the marriage) :P

We discussed it while we were waiting. If need be, I would have moved there, but wouldn't have had much chance of reasonable employment. I have a pension that would have supported us.

I would love to - but Australia is WAY far from Florida. My parents would KILL Me - It's too far, and we are a close family. But it's still an option for the future

Finally finished with immigration in 2012!

On behalf on my husband. YES he would have moved to England. In fact we were looking into it last year before various events forced us back to the U.S. We'd both rather be in England, but it just isn't possible right now with him having regular surgeries and procedures. In the future we'd live there in a heartbeat. Especially if we have children, I dont want them educated in the American public school system.

Yes, but in the future/

I would have loved to go there, but I have joint custody with my ex, a house and I love my work here...

My profession is looked at a bit differently there. I am viewed as a luxury provider there-rather than as a health provider, as I am here.

It is however, something that we plan on in the future however, when my son is of age and off on his own. As far as work, I am adaptable and find something else to do, which I plan on anyway-as my hands won't stay steady and strong forever.

I cannot believe that some people answered "No" that they wouldn't move there. (Flame ready suit on). I would do ANYTHING it took to make our relationship work. Ali would do ANYTHING it took to make it work. I think it's sad to ask someone to leave their country and come to you when you would never even consider the same. We are two people in love that will sacrafice whatever it takes to be together and start or family. I would totally move to Lebanon in a heartbeat and live there if Ali's visa was not going to work out.

Reunited and it feels so good ....

NOA #1 - March 23rd, 2004

Very well put... I actually FORGOT to respond myself LOL and was going to say the same thing... I would move to the moon if it meant us being together.. I said from the beginning I would gladly move to England especially because of his son but after plenty of discussion we thought coming here would be best. Mainly because I've been at my job for over 15 years and not that I couldn't find work in England it just would be easier for Crash to get work here (hopefully) since he's got background in a bunch of things... We did say that eventually we would love to retire to England.. I fell in love with the country along with my man and can't wait to go back...

We discussed the option of him moving here. But he shares custody of his kids and I could never ask him to leave his kids for me. If he did I would have to wonder about him honestly. Also financially it did not make sense for him to leave. I answered for him, yes, he would if that is what we had to do to be together. Thankfully I am able to go to him.
