eeee... i don't know how my husband would feel about the kilts . we are very excited to move to HK. see you all soon!
To be perfectly honest, many girls in HK aren't exactly what I would call knockouts (in fact many are built like prepubescent boys...i.e. no boobs or hips). Guys who are after lookers definetely move to Tokyo before HK (in my humble opinion).
What you do find is that many old horny men (with $$$) do find that they can pull young "sugarbabies" and this causes the breakup of many marriages. It must be a great power trip for a guy in his 40s - 60s to get a 20 something gf. Keep in mind that HK is much more materialistic than US so $$$ is everything.
PC Man and Hello there have very valid points. One thing to remember as well, is the stress that there is even before you leave as not only are you moving house but moving countries. I kept thinking as we were going three weeks of packing, moving, etc that if I can get through this I can get through anything. I think too often companies forget that the spouse is more often than not the one that's doing all the organising on their behalf. Then they go off to work and you're left trying to figure out what to buy at the supermarket. However, in saying that, I'm taking our time here to challenge myself and getting out of my comfort zone.

Why doesn't your Missus want to move here? On that package it sounds like you will be quids in. Not been here long but the lifestyle is great and your wife will meet loads of people as soon as your kid starts Kindy or school. Haven't met a kid who doesn't love it here. If you get sports club membership too then all the better.
Rebekah - Marriages don't just fall apart here, there has to be some fundamental problem to begin with. The only issue here is that sex is so readily available if that is your bag. Women literally throw themselves at you primarily because expats in particular are seen as a meal ticket. Up to your man to resist or not.
