Is it a good idea to move to Jamaica
I am from the US and I have a friend in Jamaica; we are getting engaged and have toggled with who would move.
I originally wanted to stay in the US for the kid's sake but now I am feeling like I would rather just move there with him...
Do you think that would be a good idea, such as how easy is it to get citizenship and be able
to work? How are the school systems for my children. Don't worry for nothing but just
curious about things that I may face...
I love the country and the anthem and that man of mine......

That's a touch one.
That is a very personal decision only you can make.
There are pros and cons to every situation and there is always and opportunity cost - I learnt that in econ :-) so and this is no different; Jamaica has some clear benefits, but you'll have some challenges as well.
It's for you to weigh the decisions - taking into consideration your goals and desires, but also what is best for you and the family - in the short, medium and long term.
I would say, talk to friends, continue to read and research, and even visit here a few times before, making a final decision.
I was once told, "always make your sure you balance the heart with the mind... the "emotion" with "reasoning"." Good luck
