And whose fault is that? Why did you let her "control it entirely"???
The next comment isn't a random thought, nor one I agree with 100%, but it does have some basis on many years of friendly discussion with Finnish women: Finnish women have a reputation for being tough and dominating, but they're not some sort of genetic feminists, it's just that historically they *think* that they've been forced to take control when the other option has been a weak-minded, dithering, alcohol-affected male. Of course not all Finnish males are like this, but maybe just enough are to have affected the ladies mindset So anyone who wants to build a successful relationship with a Finnish women should be aware of this fact, and act accordingly. Don't be a pussy, take a 50% stake in the relationship!

My wife and I have been going through a hard time the last 3 weeks and it just turns out that she's fallen out of love with me and she would rather just be alone (ouch). Can't imagine why /sarcasm
Anyway she's leaving herself with a mountain of bills to pay that she will no longer be able to. Everything is in her name and I am taking the computer which still needs quite a large amount of payments so at least she won't have to worry about that.
Anyway so I-told-you-so's aside could someone please help me out with how I am supposed to get my PC over to Australia?
Apparently it can be sent via 'heavy luggage' or something on a plane? Or should I send it over on a boat or something? Where should I go to ask for a quote? Of course I have the box and stuff to pack it all up in. Basically I just need to take the screen and the tower/box with all the stuff in it. That's it.
I'm struggling to come to terms with this because it's all extremely sudden. I used to think that it was crazy that people would come on the forums here and complain about their wives like they had just woken up one morning and gone berserk and just ordered them out. At least I know I'm not the only one... I honestly feel sorry for anyone who comes over here and literally puts everything they have on the line for a relationship that their wife controls entirely.
I can barely type here my hands are pretty shaken... there goes 18 months of my life and I didn't even get to learn the language... all I have is my phone and the clothes on my back to go home with. My family absolutely insisted that I take the computer with me because it's mine and I deserve it. My wife agreed but I need to know how to send it back with me.. I will be taking a train from Oulu to Helsinki or possibly a plane. I don't know.. but of course I would like to spend as little as possible and speed isn't really a concern. If it takes a month to get to Aust that's ok, as long as it doesn't get lost or anything.
I just need to know what options I have in being able to ship it back to Aust somehow and how much is it going to cost?
Retrospectively it would be nice to be able to walk out of the airport and have it with me.. but I don't know if that is possible..
Thanks a lot... I guess I've had my last laugh in Finland. I won't be back again, this is it for me. I've shovelled so much !"#¤% here I'll never put up with that again.. I wonder if anyone else has left here after just as long a, time with as little as I am going back with.

Posti said online it'd be about 150€ I'm wondering if I should go with that...
Is it something that you pay for when you buy the ticket or can you just literally walk into an airport with it and say that I want it to go on a plane and I have the cash to pay for it.
