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.
In this one, the author analyses the impact of international relocation on couples. Expatriation means change, and change has deep consequences on children, trailing spouse but also on marriage. This last one must be very strong if you want your relocation to be a success. Robin Pascoe analyses then moveable marriages under all aspects. Topics such as isolation, dependence, money, sex and intimacy are explained in an international setting. The author also deals with key topics such as the role of the company (which assign the couple and family abroad) towards the trailing spouse, dual career challenges and divorce. At the end of each chapter, she gives practical tips to make the best of your experience abroad as a couple.
I particularly enjoyed reading some parts of Robin's book especially the one about dual career challenges. She pushes the reader to ask herself the right question like "What means success? What does it mean to be successful professionally?" The chapter about money, sex and intimacy is also particularly interesting.
This book will be very useful to intercultural marriage or women engaged in a relationship that involves a move abroad. Finally, I recommend this book to any couples because it deals with relationships between men and women.
