“I’ve never heard of a husband ghosting his wife. Until mine did.”
When my husband and I got married, we came up with a plan of attack for the next couple years. As I was from New York City and he from Paris, we’d start out with a year in NYC, then a year in Paris after we got married, and the visa situation would be easier to handle.
We decided on how much money each of us needed to make in order to live comfortably, travel, and be able to jump back and forth between the two countries to visit friends and family. Granted, it wasn’t a five-year-plan, as some couples do, but our two-year-plan made sense for us.
And although we knew it wouldn’t be easy, because of logistics and someone would always have to be compromising, we moved forward. I actually dared to believe in a happily-ever-after.
