My sister and I have been nomadic for the past year. We’re not a romantic couple, obviously, but I think we still count as a couple of family members traveling together.
Originally I had a solid remote job and she was having trouble finding work. We figured the finances out in such a way that Plan B would have been that I do most of the work and we find somewhere cheap enough that we could live on mostly my income. However, that ended up not happening, but we had a plan that I was comfortable with.
Dependence and Relationship Status
Now, she and I are sisters, so as Manuel points out, probably not a good option if your significant other is a girlfriend/boyfriend. I would really only recommend a financial dependence plan if you’re married or family (and ONLY if your family is already “sharey” like that, finances-wise), AND the dependent person is going into it with a chunk of savings.
Give Yourself a Way Out
The savings, obviously, is a way out in case dependence doesn’t work out. Consider also having a time limit. Our plan was to go for 6 months and then see how we feel, so that if it wasn’t working out, we had an out.
@PezCuckow Not sure about this one, honestly. Communications seems to be a field with plenty of non-technical remote positions (although most of communications these days is somewhat technical anyway). Depending on her experience she might be able to find a variety of freelance gigs. I’ve worked with quite a few remote freelance copywriters. She may be able to find some low-paying gigs even having little to no experience. There are sites out there to facilitate that, oDesk being one. As for local jobs I would imagine hotels and airports would be interested in English-speaking folks in a non-English speaking country. No experience with that though.
