One of the biggest changes may be a change in your role. If you had a job and gave it up to follow a loved one, you may now find yourself changing from financial contributor, to stay-at-home spouse. Money often represents independence, and without it, you may suddenly feel angry and resentful because you're not as comfortable stating opinions on family buying decisions, or you're unable to comfortably do and buy the things you once did.
As the stay-at-home spouse, you may feel resentful of your partner who gets to go into an office setting, meet people. If your partner travels and leaves you alone, this may increase the resentment. You may need different support from your spouse, especially if you've moved back to his or her home, a place where they have friends and family, and presume you will easily and happily fit into life the way they want it.
