Adjusting living abroad especially if going out for the first time
Many girls walk out of their cloistered environs only when they are getting married. Some girls walk out for the
first time with palpitations in their hearts…wondering if they will be able to adjust living abroad. Quite a few relationships fail because
wives have not adjusted to new laws and customs. If the groom works abroad then before marriage it is mandatory that one short trip be organised. This actually is the only sure shot way to know if the girl will be able to adjust to living in an alien environment.
This exercise is essential as not all girls are able to understand the local culture in the new country. Adjusting does not only mean making compromises with the people around, but also to the place. Leaving your home, family, identity – in short your life, for a new one after marriage is not easy. And especially if that means adjusting to a new life outside the city or country where you were born and raised. The memories of the place, friends, family and the surroundings are so deep that it’s a Herculean task to erase them and settle into a new life at twitch of a second.
But that’s what marriage does to all women. We all do it, whether we like it or not. Adjusting living abroad is the worst of all – an alien man, an alien place, people whom you can’t identify with and certainly the new road and routes to map in the mind. Become adventurous!
