Our expert says:
I know of couples who have managed with this sort of arrangement, and others who have not. Much depends on the nature and strength of your relationship, and how well you can both hold this in perspective. This is for a specified 2 years, so you both know how ling it will last ( uncertainty is harder to deal with ) Maybe in that time you can arrange to visit him in angola on your leave from your own job. As it is only a 2-year contract, you may really want to hold on to your own job, to maintain those earnings for when his contract ends. Also, you being back here, you could help to keep an eye and ear open for further opportunities here, as his time in Angola draws towards an end.
From your further comments, you sound like a realistic and sensible couple, and likely to be able to manage this. It is prudent, and not at all selfish, to keep on with your own job.
