I’m planning to return to the States soon & apply for a fiance or K-1 visa. We don’t look at dogs and say ewww it’s from Germany ! And as my book reads a flower in the city which is about this very same topic . Marriage is for the devoted and strong and the ones who found that special someone to share life with and love no matter the circumstances ! We are still young and we all go to bed saying I love you and I tell my kids the reason why some people are bullies is because they aren’t happy at home ! I too asked God to send someone but he was not from America. Reply Your viewpoint on the international marriages is profoundness.
Reasons why internet dating is bad
And it is a good thing because I would have killed the bastard! We first met in California and started dating also lived together for three years in California and that was 17 years ago . So the kids are extremely lucky to have both sets of grandparents only a short drive away. ) but my husband suffers a lot in missing his family in Brazil (we visit them once a year for a month at a time). Having said all of this, looking back I would probably do it again …
I hate any male that even raises his voice at a woman let alone hurts one! I was actually searching for something else and I read 10 reasons why not to marry …… We have been married for 16 years next month is our anniversary:). I still miss my home country, although I’m sure it’s changed so much now I wouldn’t feel at home if I went back. Reply Dear Wendy, I am happy that you are so understanding to visit his family so often. all of the points listed are very well known to me …
How else can our families see their grandchildren/niece/nephews grow up? While others are investing their extra dollars in college or retirement accounts, we are saving up for our next airline tickets to Germany!
We love visiting family but it can put an added strain on our marriage since we never really get a “true” vacation to places that we’d like to visit and don’t know a soul. $7,000 is a lot of money which we’d love to be able to invest for the future.
Reply Hi Judith, reading your post made me slightly nervous That’s because I’ve been with my fiance for over 5 years & your story made me wonder if my relationship will end the same way?
Right now I’m in her homeland where I’ve been living for over 5 years. When you ask God for someone to Love as I did I was thinking of a beautiful person within my race but God gave me what I asked for and what he thought so needed and the same goes for you all. Of your worrying about how someone views your spouse then don’t get married . Thank you for bringing God into this picture of people’s lives.
We’ll hope to work out college and retirement as best we can. At least one set of grandparents is always far away. Or will we let our children decide based on where they are living?
Our children will never be able to have both sets of grandparents living nearby. Skype is a wonderful thing but it still doesn’t replace spending time with real, live grandparents, aunts and uncles. And here is one more general question: Where will we be buried when we die? Many of us know the answer already while others have no idea.
The knowledge of this weighs heavy on me from time to time. I can’t remember the last time we took a long vacation that didn’t have as its core visiting family members.
Since we live relatively far from my American family, we alternate vacation years so that we can visit his family one year and mine the next.
There will never be a time when we are close to his family as well as mine. Things just feel a little less warm and comforting when our holiday traditions disappear. However, there are times when our cultural differences rub one another the wrong way. My husband is completely fluent in English yet he can still feel out of place when he hangs out with a bunch of Americans using slang and subtle cultural references. My husband had to listen to my complaints (for a long time) about how different life was in Germany.
