Question: I met my former husband in our second year of university and we got married within a year of graduation. Although we were young at the time, we both had some experience of previous relationships. Our honeymoon lasted almost three years during which time we travelled around the world partying and finding work where we could. We were madly in love.

In the final few months of our trip, he was actively applying online for jobs and doing Skype interviews. Eventually he was successful and we returned to Ireland. I would have preferred to continue living abroad and taking on casual jobs, but nonetheless we came home and I got a good job in the area that I am qualified in.
