Adapting to expat life can sometimes be much easier for one partner than the other, and when this happens, it's not unusual for each person to struggle to understand the other's perspective. One of you may be feeling overwhelmed and homesick, thinking "I know I should feel grateful to be living here, but I feel overwhelmed and I just want to go home!"
The other may be excited and confident about the future, thinking "What’s changed? We knew it may be a bit of an upheaval, but this was our dream!"
There's a lot of frustration, confusion and guilt.
At times like this, and with the added pressures of dealing with bureaucracy etc, it’s easy to end up distressed, and if left unresolved this can really hurt your relationship.
