Just an observation here taken from personal experience and living decades with Expats away from home.
We leave our homes and families to take jobs far away to make money (chasing money) hoping/wanting to give our families a better life. This seems like a noble cause for sure. After all that is what we are suppose to do,,, provide for our families to make life better for them. Well be aware that there are a lot of pit falls and temptations with this life style that, a lot of times, ends up just the opposite of what we originally planned.
There is an old saying “Time heals All” well I would like to add that “Time Deadens All” Long absences from your family will eventually have a detrimental effect, especially if you are going to a Target Rich Environment. (Lots of Temptation Surrounding You) What started as a noble cause to save or improve the family,,, lots of times results in a loss of family.
What can you do if you have to proceed down this path apart ??? Well I think the first thing is to pray about it, and wait for the answer,,, not the answer you may may want,,, but the answer. Of course you have to believe for that to work. The next thing is to stay in contact,,, communicate with your loved ones. I have noted that there is always a slowing of the communication process if you are getting sucked into some temptation.
But the best way to help avoid this trap,,, is to stay together !!! Take your family with you if you have to go,,, it may not be the easiest way,,, but it is, for sure, the best way. This is why I now firmly believe that if you want to “Stay Together” you have to “Be Together” !!
