This is the first time I have ever used a forum so hopefully I get some good use out of it. So here's my story.
I'm a 22 year old woman that has lived in Michigan my whole life. I recently graduated from my university education with a bachelor's degree in nursing. After I pass my boards (hopefully), I will be a registered nurse. I'm just starting a job at the hospital in my area. With that being said, I am in a serious and wonderful relationship with my 31 year old boyfriend of a year and a half. He's a mechanical engineer from the Frankfurt area that's coming to the end of his American contract at the end of October. We have no doubts that we want to be together forever. Doesn't that sound cheesy? But we do. He has asked me to move over there to Germany with him.
So what do I do? I have traveled a lot and him and I took a vacation over there last September so I could meet his friends and family. I do want to go over there, but I just want to make sure that I have covered all the bases and that I am making an informed decision. I figure that I could go over there and try it out for a year or two and see what happens.
I don't know how nursing is over in Germany, but working as a nurse isn't a huge deal to me. If I have to work in another field, I would, but I do know that it's hard to get a job over there. His job pays him well and I have about $500/month of student loan payments coming at me starting in December. Yikes! So if anyone out there has any advice for me, I would appreciate it. Of course my family and friends would love for us to stay here and vice versa with his side. I'm trying to get an unbiased opinion.
Just let me know. Thanks.
