Thanks for taking time to read
the following message.
I've been with my boyfriend for almost three years. After dating with
him for one year, I have already known that he's the one for me. He
treats me very nice and my family loves him a lot. Recently, I've just
Boston for graduate study.
My boyfriend stays and studies in California. We decided to get married
four years later after I graduated.
I feel pretty confident and I'm very happy about our relationship. However,
my boyfriend is an international student. After he graduated in December,
he will need to go back to Hong Kong unless he can find a job that provides
working visa in the United States. As you may already know about the
economic in the US, finding a job is not easy. Not to mention about
getting hired with a working visa. We talked about it before and we
both thought that getting married would be the best solution for him
to stay in the US. Since I'm a citizen of the US, I could petition him
to stay here.
We had a long talk on the phone last night. He's worried that he might
not be able to find a job here. His family won't be able to support
him anymore since they're having money problems. He asked me to marry
him when I go back to California for winter vacation this December.
I was really glad that he asked me to marry him and I said yes to him.
However, I told him that since we're so far away and cannot see each
other, this marriage just doesn't seem real to me. I would rather have
him staying in the United States than going back to Hong Kong. He thought
I rejected him and he was upset and told me just forget about the marriage
for now. He'll try other ways to solve the problems, but he'd definitely
try his best to get a job.
Zita, I really do love my boyfriend, do you think it's a good idea to
get married now? What do you think long distance marriage?
Thank you very much and have a great day!
