    it would depend on the job. if it was just a pencil pushing job, i wouldn't. if it were a ceo or managerial position, then i probably would. i'm not a cold person, i just thing it would be difficult enough to move away from everything you know and love for a job that might not get your partner to the position they deserve.

    Sure, they do that for me also.
    That at least what I should do.

    Do you know that, mostly, we are consuming our parents in many ways.
    Is it justice to leave them work abroad  & wait for the money from them?
    They are there for you.
    Do whatever you can do to support your parents.
    They missed (enjoying) their life supporting you.

    I would depend on how much the job paid and what country I would be moving my family to.

    absolutely i would relocate giving that i love my partner enough and willing to make the sacrifice.  But first i would need to know, if the situation was in reverse if he would make the same sacrifice for me,  i need to know its a two way street and we both love each other unconditionally.

    Absolutely, my husband packed up our household to help me further my career in another state.  Without question, yes I would.

    If it was one of those countrys that is safe. I would. But if it is one of the dangerous ones. Then I wouldn't.

    I would definitely make the move. Right now, I work entirely from home so I'm more self employed than unemployed which gives me the freedom to work from wherever in the world I choose so it wouldn't be an issue for me.

    There are many things to consider when it comes to relocating for a job opportunity. Salary is definitely a big part of it. It has to be enough to cover moving costs (if the company doesn't cover that) as well as enough to live comfortably (or to at least justify leaving your loved ones.) Another big factor is location. If we would be moving to a place where I don't think I would be comfortable it would take a lot of convincing for me to move. Obviously I would want to support my partner, but I'd have to know that our lives would be improved by this choice. Yet another thing to consider is the job itself. Is it a job that my spouse is really passionate about? Or is it just something he is taking in order to pay the bills? If he won't truly be happy doing the job then I wouldn't allow the move to happen. We would wait until he found a job where he could be happy.

    I would. My boyfriend moved 900 miles away from all he knew to be with me. I would do the same for him without question.

    I would definately move!!! There is no better way to embrace a culture than to live there for a while.

    Even if I wasn't unemployed, it would be not only a fabulous experience for cuisine, travel, photography and motivation if they are your partner im sure they would do the same for you.

    WHY NOT? At least in my case, where the move is not going to disrupt anything like children's education, in-laws dependence on us etc. Every opportunity to get out of the "shell" and see life around us must be taken advantage of.

    Absolutely, we are a team and if he needs to go, the I would go to.  He would do it for me.  It is the least I can do after 40 great years together.

    I quit my job and moved with him and our newborn and we've survived...
    I would never dream of living seperate from him at any cost!

    If he were my hubby partner, yes I would go.
    If he were a boyfriend partner then it would depend on the country...

    yes, however if you have children, there are lots of things to consider - health, education, housing, social environment plus living conditions. Timing (children in school) and future opportunities can be considered too.

    I would but that's because I don't have a mortgage, any children or real attachments aside from my job. A person who has children or close family ties may find it difficult to make a move that's far away. It would also depend on how much I like my mate and what country they are moving to. Overall though, if you are unemployed with no children, no properties and aren't afraid of being far away from family then I say go for it.

    Definitely. I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to experience a different culture and I'd miss him terribly if I didn't go.
