For the last 6 months, Fiance and I have been gearing up to emigrate to Australia. I was against it at first but have become more and more excited. We were hoping to go this September. I was getting ready to hand in my notice and getting my qualifications sorted to find a new job….. we’ve just been told that Fiance needs about another 2 years experience in his job before he’s eligible for a job there. So that’s it. Dream over. I feel really low tbh. I was so excited about the new experience and the chance to do something different with our lives. I’ve been trying to shake off the disappointment for days but I feel like I’m getting worse.
Sorry for the vent…just needed to say it to someone. I can’t say it to Fiance as I don’t want him to feel responsible 🙁

- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
Could you do a trip there this year, as a preview? Are you still planning to go in 2 years, when he’s eligible?

We can’t go any time in the next year or so as wedding plus honeymoon means not much money. I would happily go in a year or 2 from now but we also want to have kids and Fiance is set that it’s a now or never thing. I just feel so, so disappointed and need to get myself out of this funk. I don’t know why i’m struggling so much with just staying here :/

uggg, im so sorry because my british friends seem to love it down here (because they dont go home!)
i dont know the legalities but i do know the at least 4 brits that came down under on a year working visa and while here changed it to residency and now they are aussie citizens – you will have to do some research but there seems to be a way for some
hopefully this bump in the road means better things for you both, just on a different path

Thank you. The UK is a great place but it’s so dark and cold… and we live in the north :/ I think I just need to focus on the future. Thanks for your comments 🙂

@ticatica: Couldn’t you honeymoon in Australia?
Idk I wouldn’t be able to make a commitment to move to another country if I had never been there anyway–it’s a huge decision
And if you loved it-2 years isn’t THAT long to wait

i am so sorry you’re going through this 🙁 i don’t have any advice for you, just (HUGS). Australia is a great place to live, but we certainly get extreme temperatures here!
