Default Barbados bored wives club

In a post I made about 2 seconds ago I welcomed someone to the bored wives club. And then I thought, why not HAVE a bored wive's club (Or bored girlfriends club--I only thought of wives cause of that movie the first wives club, with bette midler and goldie hawn...anyways)

we could meet for coffee or lunch once a week.

Please let me know what you think!

I’m a bored husband … a trailing spouse, here because my wife was sent here for her job. Would my reproductive apparatus automatically disqualify me from membership of the Bored Wives Club?

In this modern age, why not a Bored Spouse Club?

I’m all over it. First meeting could be at my house in Atlantic Shores. You get the guest-list together.

Conditions: (i) everybody has to be a real, actual bored spouse; (ii) there has to be at least one other person apart from me who has a life-long acquaintance with testosterone.

I'm in, but would rather meet at some neutral grounds, like a pub/bar or coffee place (I don't know of many cafes but there is one in Chirst Church opposite petrol station; bars and pubs in abundace in ChCh, St.Lawrence too - quite convenient for me as I don't drive...

I’m out. If this is only for people who can bear children, I have to pass. But good luck with it.

I’m told that there used to be a club for bored husbands here. It was called Spouses Traveling Under Duress (STUDS). Anyone know what happened to it?

My wife (still not up on internet since arriving a week ago) will be game on for this. She's hoping to use this forum as one way of meeting like-minded folks. At the moment she only has our 18 month year old to keep her entertained...... it wears a bit thin after a while! Sop PM me or let me know what you decide and I'll pass it on.

Looks like it's the three of us Not bad

Just to let you know I'm going for my Christmas break (a break? a break from what??? on the 12th Dec so if you're still up for it, bimchick and Jacksog's wife - shall we arrange it for next week, perhaps? Bimchick - looks like you live not far from me

I don't want to make anybody meet up if they don't want to - just thought that if we set the time and place it might make others join in

She could work as a physio, but unless she is already a bajan, or has citizenship, she (and you) will both need work permits.. usually those are arrange by the potential employer, but it's unlikely that any Doctors office or healthcare agency would apply for that type of position, as their are already some pretty good physio's on the island.. but it might be worth a shot..

Im not really familiar with healthcare here, you will have to research because with having a profession she might be able to work if th employer wants to pay for her work permit. All i can say is it does get really boring here, ive been here nearly a year and a half and desperate for things to do, anything to be honest. Considering you have an 18 month baby she will be in a different situation to me because she can join in mother and baby/toddler groups and meet people that way. So dont rule it out completely as Barbados is a beautiful island and lovely place to experience living.
Hope some of this helps.
