Re: “U.S. law sends some bi-national, same-sex couples into exile

My blessings go out to everyone facing discrimination worldwide. My partner and I met almost a year a go through a friend online. She is British and I'm American. We can't bear to be apart and wish to marry the next time she is able to visit. After speaking to a rep at immigration equality, I realize our struggle may be bigger than we expected. Once we marry, she will be suspected of intent to settle in the states. But if we don't marry then we have no way of being together longer than 6 months in UK. It's so unfair that Americans can just decide to marry in Las Vegas due to being under the influence or straight couples commit fraudulent marriages everyday. But when a same sex couple is committed/in love and ready to sacrifice any/everything, it means nothing in the governments eyes. At this point I would like to settle anywhere that we are both welcome, whether its England or Canada.

I would greatly appreciate if the English and New Zealand couple would contact me. As I would like to know how you made it through and were able to settle in England or New Zealand. The depression/pain that one experiences when you are far from your love/lifeline is indescribable.

Blessings
