I've been reading this forum for a few months now, but now that our move is only 3 weeks away (!!) I figured it was worth an introduction.
We are a married couple in our late 20's, soon to be downgraded to registered-partnered couple in our late 20's by the Swiss authorities, at least pending any new legal situation for gay marriages.
We have been living in the San Francisco area for about six years, and one of us is starting a postdoc near Zurich while the other is starting a PhD in Zurich. We are one Texan (I'm realizing that this is an identity onto itself), and one Canadian/French dual citizen who was pleasantly surprised by the relative freedom afforded by her EU passport even in non-EU Switzerland. I've been thanking my mom for declaring me to French authorities when I was born!
We're looking forward to moving, even as we sort through all the requisite paperwork. Also looking forward to meeting some new people, improving our fledgling High German, and beginning our non-existent Swiss German (Pimsleur tapes, here we go!).
