Engagement/ Marriage Dilemna

Good Day all,

Im having a bit of a dilemna and was hoping i could get some advice on what i should possibly do.

I am a Canadian Citizen, looking to propose to my girlfiend, who is a U.S Citizen.

I am aware of the K1 and K3 visa.

However. there are a couple things that make our relationship seem, questionable.

1. Its a long distant relationship.

2. Even, if we get married, i have to continue to stay in Canada, as i am in the process of Deploying to Afghanistan.

for nine Plus months.

Should i apply , and marry her, then ask for a conditional acceptace? or should i just wait, and grow a little more distant, as

i will be in combat. When i return , i dont want to seem like i am very weird during the interview with her. Its just that.

Well, nine plus months in combat make people a little, different.

What does anyone suggest i do?

I love her very much, and cannot wait to marry her.

Thanks for your time,

Sincerly,

me

You can certainly marry at any time. It doesn't sound like you two should do anything with regard to your immigrating to the US until after you've returned and finished your Canadian military service.

Be safe. Thanks for your military service.

Sorry, I had to laugh at #1. ALL of us are in long distance relationships, that's why we want to file K1's and get our loved ones here :) No immigration visa will be very good for you if you are deploying with the Canadian military as you will not be able to fufill the residency requirement for any of the visas. Just hold off till you are back.

My thoughts exactly. Canada-US is extremely short-distance to the VJ crowd.

I would imagine that with the CR1 visa your residency requirement won't be in question since you are active duty military, but perhaps a Canadian can better answer that question.

The real question for you seems to be should you marry this woman before you deploy or not. Only the two of you can answer that!

Best of luck and I wish you safety in Afghanistan.
