What are my Best Options for Moving to Japan as a Married Couple?
(Atlanta, GA, USA)
Hi there. I am a pediatric nurse in the USA. My husband has a degree in film but is working in Accounts Payable. We both want to spend at least a year in Japan and we figure teaching English would be our best option.
We are applying to JET and Interac as our backup, but their general approach is:
"Well if you're married we will /try/ to place you in the same city but no guarantees!"
And other companies such as AEON require you to live in company housing, but only offer single-occupant apartments (and it seems like we would be penalized if we didn't mind the small space and lived in one together). We don't want to work in the same place, but we want to live together.
We decided to move to Japan after we went on our honeymoon--in Japan. Living in separate cities is simply not an option. Any suggestions?
