After hearing grievances from our French readers The Local has put together a list of the top 10 complaints the French have about their expat partners. You might want to take note.

The path of true love never did run smooth, and it’s certainly possible that you encounter a few more bumps along the way in a bilingual, bi-national relationship.

And with France being a particularly unique nation the potential for a rumpus for Franco/foreign couples is perhaps even greater.
