I'm not being dismissive. If you managed with the support of your significant other, how is that not benefiting from his/her efforts?

Let's just put that shoe back on the foot that it belongs on, shall we? I didn't belittle anything; I responded to someone (not you) who belittled someone while being ignorant of his circumstances. You've got no call to get in a huff. But as far as "belittling your efforts", which I didn't do - would you care to tell me more about how you managed your move?
Well in my case,I managed with emotional support, hardly unusual from a partner, now, is it?. Anyway, I know plenty who did "the move" on their own. In any event, we all managed to get by on our own steam, not by freeloading, as you basically stated.

As for belittling, well, yes, you did. You didn't address Szcepan directly when making this assertion, you decided to take a broad sweep at anyone who had made the effort to move long distances to pursue their training.

And when I called you on this, you accuse me of getting in a huff?
