Congrats man! :D

 

In November will be 3 years of marriage for me and my wife and a total of 7 years together in February 2014. She is from Peru and I love the food and cant wait to visit but we will always live here in the states.

Germany would be a big move IMO but hopefully it turns out great for you!

 

DIOS TE BENDIGA AMIGO

Congradulations! for the SMART choice of leaving usa with your wife and going to a real country such as Germany.  Was nice you waited awhile to get married it was smart move.

As for German langauge it is not that much different from English once you get to learn it more. French and Spanish are way harder. German sounds exactly like it is written. The long words are not difficult at all once you learn the root of the language.

Quality of life and personal freedom/privacy are all much better than in USA. Roads are also better maintained and houses are built with much better quality and standards than your cheaply build standard American houses. Even a regular German home is built much better quality than a million dollar American home.

 

Workers rights are also much better in Germany. 6 weeks paid vacation minimum and they cant force you to work 80 hours a week like they can in USA. Plus you get sick days by law also. All these rights you will gain in Germany ( and EU ) but do not ahve in USA. Plus Germanys unemployment rate is much much lower than USA ( republicans would say these rights in usa would raise unemployment rates but it has been proven false over and over again )

Having lived in both countries I wish I could live in Germany still ( but I do not have visa so stay forever in Germany )

I am happy that you are lucky to escape the s%hit hole usa that is has become. Other Americans who have never left USA to live in such a good country will not realize how much better it is over there and they will remain igorant and wave the usa flag and say its number one when they do not know any better.

I remember talking to an old women with such a still very sharp mind when I was living in Germany. She lived thru ww2 and was a young adult back then. She said she could of never imagined in her life that Germany would be more free and prosperous than USA as she grew up in ww2 with Nazi Germany. I had a long talk with her 1 on 1 as it changed me a bit to be honest. USA with all its NSA spying is on this path maybe not to mass genocide but to anyone who stands up against usa gov etc.

PS: Germany are very friendly and funny. They just do not show it at first. They may seem cold at first but once you get to know them they are friend for life or a very long time. Opposite is in USA where most people are friendly to your face but are not true friends. So Germany are much more real and Americans are much more fake.

I do hope someday I can move out of this hell hole corporate states of america and live in a free and prosperous country mself. I will never stop trying until I make it out of here.

Also Germany and EU on a whole use mucn more real sugar in foods intead of man made high fructose corn syrup. Also GMOS are basically banned in EU where it is in almost every food int he USA and Americans have no right to know what is in there foods as of late 2013. I guarantee your health will be so much better in Germany than in usa ( also mainland EU/ Scandanavia ). I am so happy for you that you can live in such a great country.

As I said again I will never stop trying and dream of moving out of USA so I can live in a free country where people have rights, respected etc and not ruled by corporations like usa is. I actually have 50 percent German blood in me and wish I could just pack up and move right now.

Germans taxes look higher on paper yes but in reality unless you make a million a year or more you will pay less taxes in Germany. Americans think they have low taxes but they have so many hidden taxes and healthcare is so expensiev in usa ( and crap ) you pay for of your income away in USA for things in Germany and other western EU countries that people there take for granted. Plus Germany has no waiting lists  to see doctors and they have about 2x more Doctors per person than USA does. Dont let anyone tell you Germanys healthcare is goverment controlled because it is not. They use sickness funds non profit like what a credit union would be in usa ( except usa does not have sickness funds only credit unions for banking ) Plus your kids if you have any will not have to take out loans for university as it is paid by taxes such as k-12 in usa is.

Their is a saying that Americans have to work their tails off 50 or more hours a week to save and have the same standard of living and save for university and other things and rainy day funds that western/ northern europeans ( except uk ) take for granted in life.

As a citizen of Germany will make you citizen of the EU wich means you can move freely to 29 countries without visa. This creates competition so the countries compete to keep the people from moving. It is so hard for Americans to leave so usa has no competition to keep the masses from moving away since it is as easy as moving from usa state to another EU makes it that easy to move to different countries. Good competition at work.

Very lucky.

 

It's hard to find a woman who doesn't care about porn stuff. 

 

I get nervous if I want to show her that stuff, and I'd be afraid to get slapped in the face. :|

I've seen marriages fall apart over it.  It definitely can be an issue.  I was really shy about it in my early 20's and ran into some issues with previous girlfriends.  After that, I just made it a habit of somehow bringing the subject up in a nonchalant kinda way and try to get a read on whoever I was dating as to what their feeling are about it.

 

My wife actually had a couple of porn DVDs (although mild porn, by my standards, but still "hardcore").  I think you would be surprised how many women actually watch porn regularly.  Certainly not as much as men do, but it isn't that much of a rarity based on my experience.

 

The key is not to keep it as a secret.  Otherwise it just builds.... and builds... into something bad.
