The problen was not money, my son in law was very well paid, but their inability to make friends with Swiss people. They could only make friends with the expatriate population who were ever changing - totally unsatisfactory. They have been in Australia now for only 9 months and have made lots friends with other parents at their children's school and also at church.
What happened? Why couldn't they make friends with the Swiss people?
