DS-156 clarifying questions

Just so everyone knows before we begin, there is a new DS-156 Form as of June 2011. I can't seem to find any accompanying instructions for it. Here is the link to the actual location of the new form.

I have a couple of clarifying questions:

Question 14: National Identification Number. Is that the beneficiaries ID number from their respective country?

Question 26/27:How long do you intend to stay?

Purpose of the trip? Does indefintely and to enter the USA to marry and fulfill K-1 visa sound ok?

Question 32/33:Do you intend to work in the US? Do you intend to study in the US? If the answer is eventually once we have gone through the change of status should we put that here? I currently have indicated Yes; After marriage and with change of residence status.

Question 36:Has anyone ever filed an immgrant visa petition on your behalf? Should I put yes since I am currently doing this or is this asking for prior to this?

14) Is only if YOU yourself have a National Identification Number (I'm thinking almost like Dual Citizenship or Citizenship with another country that gives you a NIN.)

26/27) I wrote forever.. Maybe I should've been a little more formal but I was just like NEVER LEAVING! :P

32/33) I put I don't PLAN to work or study in the USA because I'd think that might raise a little flag due to the fact that you could just be marrying someone to come study and stay.. I still want a SSN though just in case in the future I plan to work, but my current PLAN is not to work or study at the moment.

36) This question you only answer yes to if you've previously had someone file a petition on your behalf. Not the one you're doing now, but any previous attempts they must know about.

Hope this helps!
