balfourk: This is one of the main reasons that I may not get to go work in NZ. Apparently if a family wants to move there then both parents have to prove to be productive members of society so as not to cause a potential drain on the government. If I get a job offer there I know my wife will say that she isn't going to be working anymore and that kind of kills the job offer.I'd love to work there.
