@toughpashtun, You are correct in your description. I've lived a big part of my life in Pakistan, and I agree with what you've said.

The girl and her specific job isn't important... I don't think my friend has found anyone tbh... he's just experiencing this pushback. Whether there's the same job, or something as enjoyable and kinda simliar, will always be an issue when moving... the point I'm trying to get across is that, even though going back is iffy (i.e. no idea whether they will or will not), the mere possibility is enough to make some of them shun my friend.

@khushal, the biggest thing about AmCan is the material wealth. You can easily buy better cars, electronics are cheap, new technology arrives in these places before anywhere else, other things like cell phone technology (LTE, etc) is here years before it reaches pak, and earning in dollars makes it all cheap. That's the bottom line. There's also safety, especially in a place like Canada. Although, I think the dangerous-ness of AfPak is highly overrated, but what do I know?

Thing is, there's a lot of good stuff in AfPak as well. Living like a king has it's perks. Who wants to pay all those taxes? In AmCan, if you make even basic money, you'll have enemies surrounding you. In Pak, you get everything handed to you just because you have money. Food is actually food. There's certainly some benefit, otherwise it wouldn't be a consideration.

That said, yes, some people never leave North America, and others have US/Canada/EU/UK passports and never leave Pakistan (I know a few like that). Many also switch it up. I know a guy (former friend) who is from Pak, lived in Canada, went back a few years ago. Not sure if he'll come back to Canada or not... but he's lived most of his life in Canada. My point is there's no promises.

Not that many career oppurtunities plus I'd think that a person having lived abroad would find it harder to adjust in Peshawar.
