You wanna move to another country right(I did)? You wanna go somewhere better?
Well it might not be what you want!
My advice: If either spouse(or teen) is unhappy, do something to accommodate them, send them home for long holidays (once or twice a year) - no matter what it costs.. give them something to live for....
DO things like week long holidays. Get yourselves out of the home where you can recharge.. spend the cash !!! its way cheaper than having to relocate country every couple of years.
If you have property and are returning to SA, rent it out - go back for some time and SEE! - you might want to come back. (Even if you lose some cash doing this)
People give crappy advice, they say, "burn your bridges, sell it all, move it all etc". Its crap. YOU CANNOT BURN the bridges in your mind! You will not know until your gone how much you will miss your home town.
Another thought. If you are first time leavers. DO not sell your house. rent it out, make it a staged process, come back for a year, then go again. I know this sounds crazy and burns cash, but in reality we are far more sensitive to change in life than we know or think..
Why make your immigration a one off process? Enjoy both countries..
