An aunt used to live far away from home, and then when she got married, she and her husband decided to live abroad. At first she wasn't as happy as she thought she'd be, but since they were already there, they said they'd stick it out and stay. Eventually, though, they both got used to the idea (specially the idea of having two jobs). They weren't "poor", but they both thought that since it was possible to take two jobs ... well, why not? Lol.
My aunt and uncle weren't always so busy, though. One time they said that they had been to the Hotel Tropicana Las Vegas and boy, they were dazzled by all the lights! It was a once in a lifetime experience for them, since the year after that they decided they wanted to go back home. So right now they are here, but they can't ever forget the experiences they had while living in another country, and I'm glad they are sharing their experiences with us nieces, nephews, and grandkids. :)
