Robin Pascoe offers her experienced viewpoint in A Moveable Marriage. The book explores the effects of expat life on the key aspects of relationships. While some people find the tone too pessimistic, the book does have a healthy dose of humor and Pascoe does offer a significant amount of helpful information and numerous worthwhile suggestions. Though every situation is unique to that couple, Pascoe's general analyses are useful, and readers can still learn by thinking about other couples' challenges. Her main argument is that the difficulties couples face create opportunities for them to strengthen and grow as partners. Each chapter tackles a potential issue that may have intensified as a result of an international relocation. As readers might expect, the book is mainly geared toward women, as the majority of trailing spouses are women. However, men may still find it worth a read.
Pascoe is a Canadian reporter who writes on global living. She has written three other books on the subject of relocated relationships. Her goal is to provide useful ideas and to empower women to take charge of their moved marriages. To gather information for A Moveable Marriage, she conducted a survey--hard copy and via her website--and focus groups. Her husband is a Canadian government diplomat. Check out her website at [...]
Kudos to Robin Pascoe for serving up a reality check on a sensitive subject with a side dish of humor. As a person who has "been there, done that" I highly recommend that both husband and wife read this book. It will give married couples plenty to chew on before expatriating.
