By "home" I mean of birth, or place you tend to tell folks "where you come from".
Comments on whether you plan to stay, move, preferences, etc are great.
This is just about my curiosity about everyone else on this forum!
ETA: we met in his home country (UK) but moved and are permanently settled in the US (my home country). If we move abroad again, we believe it will be to a third country.
ETA2: I did forgot "both home country!" sorry about that. I cannot figure out how to add another poll item, so put those posts under "other".
We really don't see ourselves moving to the Philippines but we have discussed the possibility of migrating to other countries (Australia, New Zealand, South America). It's still a pipe dream though.
Me 32, loving him 33, more each day. Rad boy, 7/12/10 & Cool gal 4/28/13
I'm a biracial, atheist, humanist, pacifist, anarchist, bibliophile, and educator.
We live in Rome and DD was born here.
We're both classical musicians and the truth is that it is easier for us to make a living as musicians (ie: no "day-job") here in Italy.
We just bought a music studio and it's being pretty successful so it looks like we're going to be staying in Italy for a while.
Also, health-care and daycare are free, or very nearly free which is a big help to struggling musicians.
I'd like to go back to live in the US eventually, but it probably won't be any time soon. 'Til then, I go back for frequent visits.

Dh is American.
I'm English, DH was born in the US, to a Cuban dad and an Israeli/French mum, they moved to France when DH was 2 and then they moved to ISrael when he was 9.
But really, he says he's Israeli with French and Cuban ancestry as well as Israeli.
We're now in the US, but we're nomads really, we spend time between Israel, England, France and the US, we're planning to settle in another country though, but that's not going to happen anytime soon.
Mom to DS(8), DS(6), DD(4), and DS(1). "Kids do as well as they can."
I am Canadian living in the US. Son was born in United States, is American (w/ dual citizenship) and lives with me. Partner is Turkish and is currently working in Istanbul.
We married in Ethiopia and lived there for 3 months.
We've been in America since then (going on 6 years).
We are hoping to move back to Ethiopia at some point, or at least have the means to visit back and forth.
But dh really, really, really wants to live in Israel.
I'm not sure we fit in a box really, but I voted my country since that's our current situation.
We have been married for 4 years, and always have lived in Germany.
We have 1 son.
We plan to have one more baby here, for economic reasons, before moving to America in about 3 years. (Its my husband's dream to live in Florida)
DH and I are both Americans; he is Japanese-American and grew up in Hawaii. Nearly his whole extended family lives there. I am white and my family lives in Oregon/Washington. We live in Oregon right now, and probably will stay here or Washington for a long time.
We would love to move to Hawaii, but the cost of living there would kill us. It is astronomical. Also, my extended family is very small and I'm an only child. It would absolutely crush my mother if we moved so far away.
OTOH, DH's family is so big and wonderful, and I'm sad that DD doesn't get to have them in her day-to-day life. Plus, growing up hapa in Hawaii is pretty pretty normal, whereas on the mainland it's still seen as a little bit different/unusual.
When dh and I met and married, we lived in his home country.
By the time dd was born, we were living in a third country.
When dd was about 2 months old, we moved to my home country, where we currently reside.
Like many Lebanese people living in the US, we think of moving to the Middle East, to UAE or Qatar to be closer to Lebanon. But, having both come from nominal democracies where the will of the people is at least given lip service, it doesn't appeal to us to make a home in a place where we have no say at all in how the country works.
Mama to a bilingual (Arabic/English) and cuddly 3 year old, and planning another peaceful homebirth in June.
I moved to the U.S in my early teens and it feels like home although I'm not a citizen. Most people assume I'm American because I am very much culturally assimilated and don't have an accent.
Dh was born and raised here.
