I’m a 27 year old Australian married to my wife who is Taiwanese. We have one child (2 years old) & we currently live in Brisbane, Australia.
My wife has recently been hankering to move back so that she can be around family and be able to work with her brother etc. Over here in Australia we only have my parents & essentially no extended family. I am though very close to my parents though and run our business alongside my father, the business we run is completely online, we outsource any extra work we need done so we don’t really need to be in a fixed place. We get paid in AUD & USD with my part of the net profit amounting to 150,000 NT approx per month.
My wife’s family live in Hsinchu & Taipei which Is why I mentioned them and I have previously lived in Taipei but only for 1 year
My parents would also consider moving with us a little later as we are very close & for various reasons they don’t have much tying them financially to Oz, they would benefit from the lower cost of living (while earning money from overseas). I am however concerned how they would get on here being in their 60’s not likely to become fluent in another language etc, they have previously lived in a non english speaking country though.
I’ve always been drawn to moving back here but I do wonder taking the current/future tense political & seemingly dour economic situation into account would it be better just to stay in Australia, despite it being often exceedingly expensive.
Is it a reasonable idea to move back or a better idea to just stick it out in Australia.
