It’s just that, okay, in America, life is expensive. Like having a house, with the money we have, it’s not gonna equate to anything.”

Emily was surprised to hear her husband talk about moving overseas. “I completely love your culture and tradition, but we’re also very fortunate to live in America, where our kids get to grow up,” she told him, adding that her answer was “No.”
