Re: International partner and homesickness
I think there is no golden rule that applies to everyone. Each couple is different. In my case, for instance, it's been her who has moved to my place, but there's no assurance that in the near future we won't be relocating to her place.
Anyway, it is paramount to appreciate and show our partners how much we appreciate the fact that they had to move. Losing touch (even if only momentarily) with their families and friends, their routine and stuff is tough.
The thing is that in international relationships and relationships in general things change. I know, for instance, that in little time I will move.
And I will, happily!
