I’m not sure what you’re asking. You would have to be married sooner rather than later? And this isn’t something you’ve discussed with him yet, just what you’ve researched? I think you need to speak with him directly and see what he says. Best of luck and keep us posted! I know the visa application process can be tricky.

@oriskany:  I have exams this week too, booo!! When are you graduating?

 

And it sounds like a proposal is in your future within the next six months or so? If you have to get married before January 2015 make sure you talk to him about a timeline. Depending on what type of wedding you want to have make sure he knows how much time you’ll need to plan so that way he can propose at the right time.

@oriskany:  My Boyfriend or Best Friend hasn’t had to deal with the visa process but I am familiar with it through my job. Best of luck and I hope you can speak with him soon about it!

@oriskany:  I graduate may 2014 as well!! I’m super excited. I wouldve been set back from transferring as well, but I did some dual enrollment classes in high school so I managed to avoid that (thankfully!) I’m studying community health and hoping to get my masters in social work πŸ™‚ SO and I will be getting engaged after I graduate (my mom would die if I got engaged before that lol) and we’re hoping for a summer 2015 wedding πŸ™‚ 

What are you studying?

I hope the talk with your SO goes well! Men are generally clueless about everything wedding related. Let us know what he says when you talk to him!! πŸ˜€ and then you can join the shut it up pact to keep yourself from bothering him too much about it haha (I bother my SO already so I’ve entered the pact)

Smart move, SO and I went through work visa HELL last year where we were so sure it’d be business as usual and he ended up being trapped out of the country for three months. 

We aren’t formally engaged yet but we are already planning a wedding because it has to happen by a certain amout of time if we want to be sure of a seamless transition.

If you are both sure, get on it. Marry him while he is here legally.  And just ask him about it, I was reluctant to talk about it in super concrete terms at first because I was afraid of taking all the romance out of it, but when you’ve got to schedule doctors appointments and interviews and start saving folders of relationship evidence (which I find hysterical every time I do it), just have a frank talk. 

It was weird planning out when we were going to get engaged, when we were going to get married, when we were going to submit our forms etc in this super practical way. It was even weirder booking the church and now venue ahead of our formal engagement, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

 

Good Luck! Just have really open communication!

@oriskany:  He’s from Ireland. And it was really weird to transition to really planning – but the practicality of it has saved us a lot of stress already. We’re hoping to have so much done ahead of time that we will be able to enjoy the lead-up to our wedding – but we’ll see how that goes!
