We have created Mimi, a fictional spouse from a French-speaking country in Africa, whose relocation story we will follow online as she negotiates the many challenges of any real spouse/partner. We join Mimi before she leaves for Washington DC.
The boxes are unpacked, the house is functional, your partner has started her/his new job, and you have…nothing to do. Loneliness is prowling. The city is unfamiliar, and you don’t feel you belong here. Binge-watching TV shows suddenly seems like a comfortable life plan.
