If I want to live in the UK ten or fifteen years down the road, what do I do to improve my marketability as a skilled worker or immigrant now

I am American, in my early twenties and married to another American. We both have fairly useless Bachelor's degrees and work full time, making about $50,000 combined. I have a productive career in Web development and my spouse has a menial office job. What can I do in the next ten or fifteen years to make it easier for us to become ex-pats down the road? Should I bother pouring more money into a Master's education (together, my spouse and I have about $30,000 in debt--I really don't want to waste more time in school) or just work my butt off and move upward in my field? Should I court overseas employers for a few years? Currently, we live in a rural area and have no employers with international connections in the area. No kids and no interest in kids, if that makes any difference. Are highly skilled couples accepted over a highly skilled employee and a tag-along spouse?
Any insight into the politics of emigrating from the US is welcome! Thanks!
