In brief: Relocation=stress

Relocation, even positive, is a stressful experience.
Leaving the country of origin, friends, school, jobs, etc. Makes the sense of loss is more pronounced. I would recommend talking to a counselor, specializing in the issues of relocation, immigration and losses associated with the process. Losses need to be grieved and anger is one of the stages of grief.

In brief: Can be complicated

Moving can be very stressful, so if things are not going well, and if returning to the home country is not an option, then help must be sought.
For a couple, each person needs a primary doctor (can be the same doctor), who can be an internist or a family practitioner, who is not too busy to talk. Millions of americans live happier by taking small doses of medicine for stress, anger, or depression.
