Default Why did you move to America?

Hello all...

I am in the midst of writing a paper for my masters degree.

I am a Brit who married an American which is why I now live here.

What I am looking for is reasons why you, (assuming you live in America)k, relocated from the UK...

Details are up to you, I am just looking for some ideas of why Brits move to America!

Thanks in advance!

I had no choice. Hubby came home one day in september 07 and said he had applied for the job....and had got it. Oh and we had to get married.....

7 months on and here we are!!

I guess I could have said no.........
