Just focus on making sure your SO is comfortable and prep parents a bit about boundaries if they tend to not have any

Something like 2 states? or same state but just different community? You take care of your family and let your SO take care of hers. Thats what we followed! Be watchful of the motor mouths in family, you give them 5 mins and they can create a shit fest.

Tell SO to touch parents feet? At the very least they'll get some brownie points. (just a thought, not looking to get taken to task, lol)

I don’t think I will ask that. It’s not common in our culture. I will never touch anyone’s feet who I don’t respect and respect has to be earned.

We are a family with 2 kids under 3 years. Yoe : 13 - 40 lpa Yoe : 10 - 20 lpa. Watched on YouTube about the Netherlands biking culture and how it's a good place for kids. Thinking of staying long term and sending kids to Dutch school. Just beginning to apply via LinkedIn. Both of us plan to work and needed inputs on what combined salary would make sense. Would it be good to accept an opportunity if one us of us gets 60keuro and hope spouse would get an opportunity once we move there?

started a new role and the pay is great but the culture is very intense and mentally not sure how long I’ll last / how happy I would be. What would you do?
