If you want to move to Scandinavia, you can probably do it without your SO needing to learn another language.

I did US-to-Sweden in 2008 and it's shockingly easy to get by with only English here. To the point that, if you want to practice Swedish with strangers and they get any hint that you're a native English speaker, they'll immediately take advantage of the chance to practice their English instead. It's one of the major reasons why my Swedish is still atrocious after nearly a decade here. (The other major reason being my own laziness.)

    Last year I spent a day in Lund, passing through Copenhagen and Malmö. While it was quite a "corporate" visit, my wander around Lund for dinner was quite pleasant, and hardly anyone had a problem with English. In fact, I listened in on a corporate training session (some HR "diversity" material), which was delivered in English only.

    To be so close to the rest of Europe, and yet in a charming, friendly smallish town, seems idyllic.

      To be so close to the rest of Europe, and yet in a charming, friendly smallish town, seems idyllic.

      Even more idyllic is to be in the heart of Europe wandering around the charming, friendly smallish Saarland village of Perl.

      The village of Perl has population 2,129 while the municipality of Perl - consisting of the village of Perl plus thirteen other charming villages - has a total population of 7,593.

        and it's a direct neighbour of Apach (sadly without "e", but nothing is perfect)
