Ugh, gross! Cant stand vegemite/marmite.

Seriously though, wont Kim and Lleyton's kids be able to have dual nationality? They will probably be born in Australia and therefore Aussie citizens, but because Kim is a Belgian national, she should also be able to apply for them to have Belgian citizenship too. If I was in Kim's situation that's what I would want to do for my kids.

Im sure the kids will have dual citizenship as Kim and Lleyton have houses in both australia and belgium, and would want the kids to see their grandparents in these countries

Yes dual nationality sounds good :cool: (as i have dual citizenship myself, i want everyone with one). But their mother tongue will probably be english tho. Unless Lleyton gets himself into dutch (he has plenty of time i guess so maybe he should!) and they can have 2 languages at home! :p

And btw what is vegemite? I know what marmite is (and i find it disgusting) is it similar? -sorry i'm too french to know about these... :rolleyes: -
Oh and to finish on the waffle note, I had the most delicious waffles ever when I went to Belgium last year. I didn't even dare trying them anywhere else ever since... :lick: :lick: :lick:

The aussies will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Vegemite is just an Aussie brand of Marmite. Yes its disgusting!!

BTW Yasmine, doesnt "marmite" mean "saucepan" in French?

I agree with the whole dual! But i wonder where they will live. Once they finish playing tennis they will have to choose a place to live.

That's what I thought. I can't imagine anything like that on a waffle tho... :rolleyes:

And Fiona, a "marmite" is more a cooking pot than a regular saucepan... ;)
(sorry we're coming back to our language lessons)

I forgot something:
where would they live: "sunny australia or cloudy belgium?" :confused:
No offence to the belgians but it sounds like the weather there is closer to the weather in the uk than in the south of France... ;)

I'm afraid you're right! The weather is soooo bad here most of the time, but not as bad as in the UK though :p Last year we had the most amazing summer here in Belgium, but this year, it hasn't started really well...
but, well, I'm going to the south of France in a couple of weeks, so I hope the weather there will be better as you say it is, Yas!

Well I remember that a time ago there was a whole thing going on that Kim would take the Australian nationality. I really don't think she'll do that, she'll be true to her roots I guess. For the kids it'll probably be nicer to live in australia (the weather yes), but I'm sure they'll come to Belgium too. So yep, the dual nationality. And English will probably be their main language, but I'm sure Kim will teach them Dutch (and Lleyton!! - He can say 'niks' already)!

What about last winter:scared::p

And what if the kids were born on a ship owned by the States or something, would that make them Americans...
