I think the visa process for doing something like that takes months or years to complete, so January 2013 may not be a realistic goal even with everyone’s support behind you. Going to graduate school may be the fastest and easist way to get a visa. 

There are other people out there that would know better than I do, but do your research. It’s much more complicated than deciding to move there and doing it.

  • Wedding: September 2013

My dude is uprooting his entire life to move abroad with me (I’m moving for work). And when I say uprooting, I mean leaving his prestigious job, his close-knit family, learning a new language…the whole nine.  As for the living together bit, I also am religious and do not consider it an option whatsoever. Therefore, he won’t be joining me in my new country until after the wedding.  For that reason, I encourage you to stick to your guns if that’s what you believe is right. I noticed u said that you’ve lived by the books your entire life to make your family happy. If that’s the only reason you’ve lived “by the books,” then I suppose it doesn’t matter. But if you truly believe (for example) that living together would be wrong, you may live to regret abandoning that perspective.  Just my advice.

I’m glad you feel that he is so amazing. And if so, receiving a concrete commitment from him prior to changing continents should be a small matter. Also, your parents may love him now, but when they realize he intends to whisk their baby away, their script may flip completely. Be ready. Of course, I hope that doesn’t happen to you but I’ve seen it plenty of times. 

The visa thing shouldn’t be any problem at all if you’re a Canadian citizen moving to the Caribbean. I wouldn’t worry about it. I’m an expert in this area, feel free to message me with more specific questions.
