Expatriate life.

An expatriate life should be exciting, it is usually challanging. Giving up the normal situations of current life is a change, most people inherantly emotionally resist change. Relocating overseas usually involves other changes; which may include climate, finances, living conditions, language, etc.

Living a expat life is different from many situations. Commonly the finances will be better - but more complicated, the lifestyle may be advantageous. 

A single person can more easily emotionally consider a overseas relocation as a adventurous part of life - going to a new situation and place. Packing a suitcase, passport and tickets can be relatively easy for a single person.

A couple, or family, may have a very different situation. A considerable difference and complication for a couple or family move will be that there will commonly be one person who has been given 'the job'.  Other family members will be there, with frequently a feeling of 'going along with the job'. There may be an increased sense of controlling and importance level in the family group.  The 'partner', commonly the wife, will be arranging schools, clubs, socialising and the other aspects of life in new place. The 'job person', commonly the man, will frequently have more demands from his job which will be new and different.

I am a counsellor who has a background of living and working overseas for most of my life. I have now resettled back to England, with a background, experiences and knowledge of how it was to live in various locations worldwide. I work with Expatriate people who have chosen to live the life which I lived, thus I have knowledge of those feelings and problems.
