Husband's off for his Interview

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

GUAH! So my Husband arrived in Montreal to prepare for his medical and his interview on the 5th. I'm so nervous. He brought all our letters I sent to him since we were 17 (we are now 25), tons of photos, affidavits from friends, flight itineraries and even a huge sketchbook full of drawings I did for him within an entire year (I am a comic book artist and he is a writer so something we always did together was collaborate).

I'm so nervous...and I know he is too. I'm scared he'll stutter and possibly get so nervous that he'll mix up my birthday for our anniversary date (both close numbers) or say something completely dumb and he won't get approved. I read other interviews, but... I guess I'd have to be there to understand.

UNNnngh. I'm scared and none of my friends know how to comfort me so... here I am.

Together since 5-23-2002

Engaged 8-27-2008

Married 1-1-2010

Process began 9-1-2010

In my arms 2-28-2012

Relax. He'll be fine. They're not trying to trip him up with trick questions and if you've provided that many years worth of evidence of your relationship it should go smoothly for you both. :)

Think of how many people they've interviewed. I'm sure they've seen every possible nervous and anxious reaction to being in a stressful situation and take it into account. :)

It'll be fine. My fear for my hubby is that he'll get overly chummy with the officer and try to make dumb jokes. He's a goof, and I love him for it, but that's not the place for it!

Can't wait to hear your results!
