I actually know someone from the US who married a Lithuanian. It is not as hard to find a job in the ex-USSR countries as it is in Western Europe, or to live there legally. The person I know went as an English teacher. She's a good language learner, so she learned Lithuanian pretty quickly. She and her Lithuanian husband decided to live in the US because on a Lithuanian salary, they wouldn't be able to afford to travel to the US, but on a US salary, they could afford to travel to Lithuania sometimes. Lithuania is in the EU, so it IS European. She can go anywhere in the EU that she wants, but it will be harder for you to get work and a visa for western Europe. There are beaches along the Mediterranean, in countries near Lithuania, plenty of good beer, not much American footballl but it's carried on TV. Lithuania is a love country, by the way. Where does she live?
