Regarding the woman who is deciding whether or not to move with her husband -- that is a tough one, I was in your same situation a little over a year ago and decided to take the plunge. As with everything in life, + and -It was fun in the beginning when my husband had at least a weekend free now and then, but lately he has been working 7 days a week (for the past several months). I have thought about going back to the US several times but am trying to stick it out. So many variables depending on country, language, cost of living, time away from career, etc. Ladies I have met drink coffee and go on "day trips" and I have not found anyone to really "connect" with. No one seems that interested in a career, current events, politics; it seems like it's mostly Moms and Grandmoms. I think what is important is that if you DO decide to relocate, then you need to find something for yourself, like a hobby or learning a language. All in all, it's a great opportunity & good luck with your decision!
