Firstly, hi… I’m new here. Been floating around a couple of wedding sites but not found them overly useful. Fell in here by accident and it seems a lot better than previous experiences.
So, long story coming up. I’ll kinda try and bullet point as much as possible… Please feel free to ask for further clarification on anything I’ve missed or not fully explained.
Not exactly sure what I’m looking for from this. A chance to tell my story, I guess, but also for any comments/advice/feedback from anyone with anything to say.
I was in a relationship for eight years. We split beginning of this year. We have an 18 month old together. We still live in the same town, share custody, get on amicably enough, for the sake of the baby.
I’ve met someone else.
In America. (I’m in England).
We met online, by accident (not a dating website, as if it matters), four months ago.
Our relationship grew very fast, but very naturally.
I just got back from America a coupla days ago.
It was the perfect week, we got on so so well, and everything just, fell into place.
We want to get married like, yesterday. On the other hand, we also want to get married legally. Proper visas an paperwork an all that.
I don’t know at the moment if I’ll be able to move over there permenant, as I’ll need consent from DS dad to take DS out the country, which he won’t give. (This is the preferred option, however).
FI can’t move over here. Two DDs and an ex wife to contend with.
The marriage itself isn’t a MASSIVE issue. We’ve spoken to immigration about the different ways around it… That’s not too bad.
How do we get to be together, though?
Oh, and in roughly two weeks time, we find out if there could be a new baby to add to the mix.
Still unsure if that will make things easier or harder.
Anyone have any story like this? Like a part of this?
Sorry it’s so long… And uhm… Hi x
