I wonder if anyone else has had this dilemma in their family?
My DS and his wife have been separated for 18 months after a nasty split. They have tried to keep it amicable for the sake of their 2 little girls. The problem is that they have lived in New Zealand for the past 7 years so have not been able to have the support of their families.
My DS had been living with another woman for some of this time though their relationship is now a bit uncertain. My DIL though has been unable to move on and desperately wants to move back to the UK, encouraged by her parents. She is very unhappy and my DS is sympathetic, however he does not want to come back here as he feels the life there is better for the children and easier for them to have joint custody of the children. He is terrified of losing his children as he has a very close and hands on relationship with them.
I simply cannot see how this situation can be resolved, as their families,we are in turmoil over it (as well as them of course). My DS's take on it is that they have jobs and a life over there whereas DIL parents want them to give up everything to come back to the UK. Has anyone else had experience of a similar situation?
