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.

The Local has asked those of our French readers who are lucky – or unlucky – enough to have an expat partner to tell us how we make their lives a nightmare. It might be worth taking note of what they say if you value your relationship.
