I know my sister in law (in the UK) who is 15 years older than her fiance, can NOT get HER company pension until he retires if they marry!!! Now that is sexist!

As mentioned to you before, this is the Moving back to the UK section.

Immigration is not for everyone and this forum is for those that are moving back or have moved back and want to share their experiences and connect with others in a similar situation. Your looking to move out of the UK so I fail to see why you continue to post in the "Moving back to the UK" section.

I don't think most reasonable people here would suggest someone is not allowed to express their opinion.

If I'm reading the recent posts correctly, people are trying to understand your motivation for coming on this board. I live in the US, and rarely visit the sections related to other parts of the world, for example (and in fact have heard several reasons on here that make me absolutely NOT interested in reading the Australia section - but that's a whole different story!)

So, if you are leaving the U.K., just why do you come onto this section of the site? Or is it some big, dark secret?

No but Wildmark has an advantage over us in that as he lives in the UK he knows everything there is too know about living abroad.

You're the one who comes out of the woodwork every now and then to criticize people who are generally sharing their feelings and trying to support each other. Of course you're welcome to express an opinion but you seem to be the only person on here who can't do so without irritating everyone else.

If you want to go home they have things called ' Aeroplanes' that fly for you, you don't actually need your own wings.

Wildmark posted he and the wife had lived in canada but returned to the UK something to do with his wife missing family. I imagine the posts of people feeling isolated and cut off from family in australia must really concern him then given australias about three times the distance and airfare.
