I moved to Sheffield 1,5 ago after living with my english partner for a year in my country (Poland). And I got a job (at a Dental hospital of University of Sheffield!!! maybe I will work with your wife! I am on the university part though) and my boy didn't. There was few tough months (as he wasn't quite sure what he wanted to do) but eventually everything worked out just fine (he decided to go back to university at the end). I'm sure everything will go great in your case as well. It's never like at home though...
Anyway, when are you moving here?
PS: and definately don't change your last name! I haven't and thanks to that people now who I am (everyone lives with fear of having to pronouce it I use the short form of my first name though, didn't want to be cruel
