K-1 immigrants divorced

I think it would be interesting to know how many US Citizens end up divorcing their spouse after they've gone through the whole K-1 Visa process. I wonder if going through this horrid process makes you truly appreciative of what you have and therefore, the marriages last longer. OR! do some meet on the internet and rush into marriage thinking they are in love when in reality they barely know the person. (I met Patrick on the internet in 2001, so I'm not judging the internet dating thing). I know no one can answer it, but it's just a thought.

Divorce can happen no matter which way one meets. I remember seeing some stastistics in a thread on the old site months ago that showed that divorce rates of immigrants married to USC where lower then USC to USC rate of divorce. So I would hasten to say that this process can and does make a relationship stronger...providing its for all the right reasons and has a strong basis.

oooh, made me go look it up, didn'tcha?

"Termagant was an imaginary Muslim deity represented in medieval morality plays as extremely violent and turbulent. By the sixteenth century, termagant was used for a boisterous, brawling, turbulent person of either sex, but eventually it came to refer only to women."

I confess, I've never seen that word before!

thanks! :)

aggravated by that of her termagant mother-in-law).

Jeeves says: Through ignorance or wilful disregard of Muslim monotheism for the sake of propaganda, European literature from the Middle Ages often referred to Muslims as "pagans", or by sobriquets such as the paynim foe. These false and deliberately offensive depictions represent Muslims worshipping Muhammad as a god, and depict them worshipping various deities in the form of "idols" (cult images), ranging from Apollo to Lucifer, but their chief deity was thought to be "Termagent".

The origin of the name "Termagant" is unknown, and does not seem to derive from any actual aspect of Muslim belief or practice, however wildly distorted. W. W. Skeat in the 19th century, speculated that the name was originally "Trivagante", meaning 'thrice wandering', a reference to the moon, which is used in Islamic imagery. An Anglo-Saxon origin has also been suggested, from tyr magan ("very mighty"), referring to the pagan god Tyr. Another possibility is that it derives from a confusion between Muslims and the Zoroastrian Magi of ancient Iran: thus tyr-magian, or "Magian god".

Actually, I never looked up the origin of the word "termagant"; only figured from the context in which I first heard it (referring to a female heckler at a LEF meeting in UK) as being the UK-English equivalent of the US-English "harridan".

(since Shona is British, the use of UK-English term seems apter)

From what I've seen on the board, many long-distance marriages break down because of a)the distance and length of time waiting which gives people plenty of chance to grow apart... and b)misrepresentation - you get here and then you discover that your partner is NOT who or what you thought they were and they have problems that they concealed from you (drinking, gambling, mental illness...) or they're abusive. Or c)people rush into it too fast and make too big a commitment and then discover that they're mutually incompatible (especially whirlwind romances)... all of which can happen to couples who did NOT have to go through all the hassle of visas etc.

The statistics would differ, relative to the length of time people were married, wouldn't they? And then one has to wonder if the statistics, if any are kept, could be skewed by K1's that remain married long enough to acquire a GC. ;)
