I moved from the UK for love five years ago ( although we knew each other for longer ) and have been happily married now for four years, so it can work. My Polish still isn't great, but I've had two decent jobs and now run my own company, so it is possible !Better to try, love and lose than regret it for ever in my opinion ;-)
Steve, your words are very positive and make me feel much better about my situation. I'm currently trying to get to Poland but am coming up against the regular hurdles (finding work, visas, etc).
Thanks for this thread, it made my day a bit brighter.
