Reluctant spouse (Singapore)



I work for a multi-national, and there is real potential for me to work at our office locations around the globe (one of which in Singapore) for extended periods of time (2 years +). My wife and I have been talking about experiencing life outside the borders of South-Africa for a while, but she is understandably afraid of the prospect and reluctant to consider it as a potential reality.

I'm sure many people have gone through this, and I was wondering if anyone could provide me with some insights into how they handled this problem, and and how it turned out if they eventually made the move with a reluctant partner.

I am not interested in forcing the subject with her in any way, but rather to hear how others handled this situation and what provided the breakthrough in the end (if anything).

Your insights would be much appreciated!
