Expats: Married Executives Juggle International Moves

Hi Everyone, Last month, The Wall Street Journal published an interesting article by Joann S. Lublin entitled Married Executives Juggle International Moves

The challenges faced by dual-career couples on the highly-mobile expat circuit are not new, but they are ongoing and they are increasingly a roadblock for some couples when one member of the couple is offered the chance to work abroad.  So it's great that the WSJ devoted some space to profile this issue and hopefully it will raise some more awareness of the difficult decisions that dual-career couples face - especially when one member of the couple has to give up their career/job to trail their spouse/partner to foreign lands...

Thanks go to Danielle Dayries of Ricklin-Echikson Associates for sending us this article.  If you see high-profile articles like this about expat life, please send them here, anytime.  Thanks, Andrea.

This has a seemingly narrow mind set - why is a married executive's struggle different from anyone else who is married and moves abroad??
Just this question has the flavor of "it's not what you know, but who you know" -gets on my wrong side.
