Expat partners who experience a move overseas together go through a great deal together; some of it good and some of it bad. Relocating to a new country, whilst exciting, can also be very challenging and you should never underestimate the impact that it can have on your partner. In a large percentage of cases only one half of a married couple will have successfully secured a job abroad, leaving the other half with the challenge of finding their own job or reinventing themselves in their new country of residence; you will commonly hear this partner referred to as the trailing spouse. It is crucial that neither party takes international relocation lightly and that as a couple you work together in order to ensure that live abroad is a pleasant experience for you both.
