What to do with my career after ?
Welcome to Sharethelove
Moving abroad entails more than cultural obstacles and language barriers. It also brings change into your life on every dimension. Relationships and marriages do change along the way, friends are missed, professional identity is on stake and most women are struggling finding new fulfillment in their life when the former job can’t be packed in a box and brought along on this adventure of living abroad. This website is here to help, to inspire, to empower, and to show you that the time abroad is a great opportunity for personal development if used right.
Why is it called SharetheLove?
SharetheLove is about motivating and supporting each other. The journey of an expat partner can be very lonely. In times of big changes and lack of support network, you often feel misunderstood or out of place. ShartheLove is a home for all expats, expat partners, and global minds to learn from each other, inspire each other and realize that you are not alone with your problems. In the spririt of SharetheLove, the world is a better place when we are open for change and willing to walk the planet with an open heart and open eyes.

A couple of days ago, I stumbled across yet another media coverage about expat spouses and the fact that those well-educated women are throwing away their career ambitions to follow their husband abroad. Interestingly enough, the comments below the post have been even more prejudiced than the article itself.
