  1. Pros and Cons of moving back to New Zealand.

      Well, italy is "long"  I am from the south, so it is around 12-15 hours by car depending from the traffic   Well maybe I missed the fact that husband is not from your country. This I believe can make things more complicated, because He also has to undertsand what he considers home. About you, if NZ is not your home then what you consider your home ? I believe there are things of Germany that you don't like at all, maybe you hate them and make you feel a bit apart. And you don't feel like that in NZ, so, actually NZ could be your real home.   You know, I am seeing here (in germany and not in Toytown) too much expats that are not happy, that don't like some stuff of germany and germans till the point, in not few cases, to HATE an entire country and an entire population. Just because, at the end, they are different from them. The worse one are the "südlander" (italians on top of the queue) due to the obvious cultural difference. And I usually tell them "you constantly bash this country and the entire population (like they are an unique uniform entity), you constantly judge them putting yourself on a Pedistal and looking at them from top to down. Do yourself a favor, leave this country and go where you will be happy". The answer is an hateful "here it is again the lawyer of the Germans"   Of course this is not your case, just "writing loudly"
  2. Pros and Cons of moving back to New Zealand.

    If you in New Zeleand will not starve then just leave germany and go back there. It is obvious that you can't consider Germany your "home" and the risk you will live a miserable life here is quite high. Money is not all unless you are starving and you really NEED to expatriate. It is the same I say to friends, relatives and former colleagues in italy that ask me "hey, how is life in Germany?" because they are thinking to move here for the definitively higher salary (and less hours of work). And a great bunch of them I know will be the classical one that after 1 months here will start to crying about how much they will miss, sun, pizza, mamma, "warm people", bla bla bla bla bla bla.

    You can use the Covid warn app for this purpose. You can download iteven if your country in google is not Germany
  4. Euro 2020 and 2021

    This discussion reminds me when the topic is  "what an atrocity the nazi did with the jews" and you see people (usually the modern nazi fan) answering stuff like : "ok and the gulag in soviet union?"  "ok and the redskins massacres in USA?"  "ok and massacres during colonialism?"    Und so weiter, und so weiter

    wow, a lot of Britons here 
  9.   Maybe you quoted Mike's list by mistake or maybe actually with your post you did not answer at all to his points
  10.   Ok necroposting but I can'T resist. For your info, if a non muslim want to marry a muslim woman, he has to leave his religion and convert to muslim religion. And this is not about is something requested from the country of origin of the woman in order, in the best case, to make the marriage valid there also and in the worst case to avoid problems with local "justice". This is because great part of muslim countries were not able to separate the f***ing religion rules from the men rules.   So yes. For muslim religion marriage, also from legal point of view, in some(?) cases contemplate forcing to leave/change religion.   And on top of that, leaving muslim religion is something that is prosecuted with death penalty. This, again, because great (if not all) part of countries where the muslim religion is the main religion were not able to separate religion from state.  
  11.   our case is that we want to marry in Germany, according to German Law.   Just for reference for future readers, the Standamt will require both to produce all the needed documents in order to make the marriage valid also for the law of the country of origin of each member of the couple.
  12.   Oh really ? Then I was always having wrong information in my mind. I thought that one member of the couple was forced to choose:   1) to change the surname in the one of the partner 2) as 1) but adding his/her original surname, separated by an hyphen    
  13. Hi,   I googled but i failed to find something matching my case. Me and my partner are both non german citizen (i am EU, she is not). In our origin countries after marriage the members of the couple keep their own original surname. No need to change for one of them, no need to add hyphen seprated surnamet, and all this German stuff.   I was googling and I found a post in another forum where it was mentioned that if we are both non German citizen we are free to keep (or choose) our own surname according to the law of our countries, even if we celebrate the marriage in Germany, in a german stadamt. Is this correct ? Could you please point me to some official link or suggest me some (german) keywords that can be helpful in my search on google ? (my german is not that good, unfortunately).   Thanks.    
  14. The "why it is difficult to leave" thread

      A bit off topic maybe. Is Agios for Agiostratis ? I played for several years a combat simulation named Arma 3 and the "playing fields" were basically an accurate reproduction of two islands: Agiostratis and Lemno.    
  15. Pros and cons of German citizenship

      Good Point. I am Italian, so anyway at that time we were the "baddies" as well, friends of the baddies. Actually the only act of war my granpa did (he was freshly enlisted) was ambushing with his unit a Nazi column, after the armistice, being sure to kill every one in order to avoid any survivor reporting the position of his unit. So he was even a bloodthirsty backstabber, even more "baddy"   I guess the children will not get confused, in my case. Let's go for the double citizenship.
