I have just joined this forum and am wanting to test the water with an idea I have for some research I am doing... I would really welcome any feedback;
Basically I am interested in looking at what happens when women (from Western countries) follow their husbands overseas for work and then find because they are cut-off from their families/friends/hobbies/own careers that they start to reassess their own lives and options and look at studying as a way of coping with living overseas. I am wondering if women might consider returning to study (or even starting study for the first time) as a way of filling in time and preventing boredom, as a social tool, as a way of feeling independent and having something 'of their own'. Of course I realise many women aren't 'following' their husbands and I simply mean that the move was instigated by the husband's work rather than any other reason. As I said I would love to hear any feedback or if you have any comments on this, I would welcome them.
