Totally sleezy. I can’t stand this type of thing. While I personally do have an issue with people being here illegally (though I’m totally not going to get into it here, so dont worry) knowingly deceiving the military or government in any way is a big no-no in my book. 

On an unrelated note, I grew up in Queens and totally miss it down there!

I don’t think it is right either. There are so many people here that actually really need help and can’t get it. I think it is very wrong for anyone to knowingly cheat and/or use the system. It takes away benefits from those that should be getting them and aren’t. It seems like the more honest you are, the less benefits you get when you need them.

It is very shady.

I don’t think his military benefits double though. I know they do increase, but that sounds high.

How interesting that she’s buying a wedding dress; how much of a wedding are they having?

That is incredibly dodgy and it really makes me angry!   Having to go through the green card process myself (FI is from Australia), I know what a long, time consuming process it is and it makes me angry that people try to cheat the system.  It’s people like that that complicate the system for those of us who truly do have spouses from overseas whom we are marrying for love. 

Isn’t there a way you could anonymously contact immigration to alert them to the potentially fraudulent marriage?   Usually immigration is pretty good about weeding out the fakes….  hmm..

@judithsr:  You’re right, they will have to prove the relationship but based on what we had to do, proving it is no easy feat!  We had to include letters, emails, phone records, photos of all of our times together, plane tickets, hotel reservations etc!  We also had to get a million notarized documents from family, friends, employers, bankers, etc testifying that we are a genuine couple.  Ugh.  I really do wonder how this couple is pulling it off…..  

And above all, it’s just WEIRD!  Why would you marry someone whom you don’t even know???  If she’s from the UK, there are lots of ways she can come and work in the States legally….at least for a while.  I just don’t get some people.
