Well yes. It is turning into a bit of a discussion and debate which is fine.

Although I really do feel we have all shared enough of ourselves to someone who is not at all forthcoming & I am left wondering just what is the point.

Let's face it , most newbies share their own circumstances somewhat & then ask if it is doable in NZ terms. Until the OP comes across , then we are all spitting in the wind.

It's far better for people on the ground and in the know to be frank, to poke holes in assumptions and stress-test arguments before some could make a costly mistake.
As someone that emigrated ages 50 & 45 to an NZ trade wage , I agree. I do wish that had been the case when we thought to make this move over 11 years ago.

Better not share any of your own real views on here as the thought police will take them down, pathetic.

You are free to think whatever you like but when it comes to expressing your thoughts BE is not a free-for-all and common decency is expected.
