I need to decide by tonight if my children and I will be moving to Korea with my husband.

Anyone have any info or insight?

My husband and I met in Korea. It's an awesome experience. A lot of people speak English and love practicing with foreigners. There are tons of things for kids to do. I loved the food too, and you can still find American food. Where would you be? I lived in Seoul.

is it a temporary move, for milatary or work? It may be a great experience for both you and the kids.  Many countries still have American schools and neighborhoods for companies that bring over American employees.

We have a Korean exchange student. That's pretty cool. I think I would move with him. That is too cool an experience to pass up.

We are still waiting on the exact orders stating where in Korea. Hopefully he will get them soon but for the time being I'm making the decision to go or not blind.

Honestly it doesn't matter where you go. My husband was stationed at Uijeongbu, about 2hours north of Seoul. I was an English teacher there. The south is really nice too. I think 3 years without your husband would be horrible. But I have to ask, what are your reservations about going? Korea is an amazing country. I knew a girl whose husband was in Korea for a year while mine was in Afghanistan and her husband was gone the whole year without coming back at all. I just can't imagine how hard that would be, especially when it's a place like Korea. It's safe, educational, cultural, fun, an all around amazing experience if you choose to make it that. Look up some of the touristy stuff about Korea too.
