Having a wife is one of the key reasons never to go to the UAE/ME3. I can completely understand when you are in your twenties, single and no kids to go to EK. Having done various stints in the UAE I can fully comprehend that the first couple of years can be quite fun. Long term it is a shithole compared to basically everywhere in Europe.

I also donít agree that most employers in Europe are worse than in the ME. Wizz, RYR and most Eastern European operators maybe.
