When Relocating Goes Horribly Wrong

Interesting article that showed up on my news feed...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-16789231

Basically, relocation moves that have gone terribly wrong for family life.

I guess my way was best. Get divorced BEFORE leaving the old country and coming to the new. Came single, no baggage. But got a bunch of baggage now if I leave! :cool:

Oh, come on, all of the articles written in such manner are way too generalizing. After all, marriage does not "fall apart" because of the place/because of Orchard Towers near by/because of..., but purely because of people.
