I am Karunya and I think I might know what your spouse is talking about. Apart from the more comfortable and organized life we have grown to like here in the US, there are other factors too, that will change when you move to India.
Many families may decide to go back to the city where their parents live in or even move in with them! This might or might not work for everyone, because we are used to living independently without our Indian society’s judging eyes and ears. No offense to the society, don’t get me wrong. But unfortunately, women are judged more in India!
So, if this happens to be the concern, moving to a nearby city could be a solution.
