I absolutely loved Poland when I came here for long summers, and christmas card winters.
Surprisingly most of my visits have been late October through February, ony ever been in Poland twice in the summer.
What part of Poland are you going to be living in? Eastern Europe or Central Europe?
We are looking at Wroclaw where we have visited a few times and both have friends, or perhaps Gorzów Wielkopolski. If we go for a house, it'll be Gorzów Wielkopolski, Wroclaw if it's an apartment Our budget is around 400,000zl,so if we need more it'll be a mortgage. His family are from a small town near Gdansk, but the aforementioned BIL is in Poznan.
It matters for some immigrants (if you're devout catholic, and don't mind nosy neighbours, scrub that)
I'm non religious - our family is culturally Catholic in a very loose manner, but we turn up for 'hatches, matches, and dispatches', we never make it to Communion.
My Polish is terrible, it's my big failure in life - inexplicably crap at any language apart from English to my embarrassment.
Your brother in law has some nerve - why have a kid if he cant support it ?
Oh you have no idea. They've also suggested that we could help with the IVF costs as SIL,is struggling to get pregnant with #2. Given I can't have one
I thought that was a very kind and selfless suggestion on their part. The middle two siblings (early 20s) are ok, but the youngest BIL is cut from the same cloth as the eldest BIL, and he's only 14.
See a lawyer but as G says it might be best to put it in your own name though if you die first then it might be that your husband is back to square 1
That might not be an option currently as I'm Australian and non-EU and I think I'd need approval as a foreigner. I've been dragging my heels over getting EU citizenship, but I think I'm going to need to.
Thankfully we have 20+ years before we retire. I'm hoping that I'll be able to do some work part time, not for the financial benefit but for the social interaction with a multinational or similar as I'm currently doing a PhD part time. But that's a very long way away to be thinking about,
