MY fiance Dave (UDC) and I have known eachother for nearly 4 years now and we have been talking about the K1 all this time, but we wanted to be real sure before we actually took the big leap. In my eyes I was really reall sure the minute I saw him the first time, but he wasnt too sure, although he loved me, to him Marriage is a big thing and he wanted to get it right the first time. I guess he is oldfashioned in that he feels strongly that marriage is for life!! I do like that because to me he is the only man I want to spend the rest of my life with, but I have been married before and know that things can change. I am a very spiritual person and whether anyone believes me or not - I know deep down with my heart and soul that this is the man I will be with the rest of my years :) Oh and yes we are filing our K1 this week (he was supposed to have mailed it yeasterday but i havent heard from him yet).

We waited about 1.5 years before we filed the I-129F (after deciding that we want to live together). It took us some time to figure out which visa is the right one and we also needed the time get some things straight (most importantly finishing our studies, paying back my student loan).

The waiting is killing me lately but I know that it was the right decision. Also, I needed a little time to say good-bye to my country, plan the move and talk to friends and family about the decision.

You could say my fiance and I waited 6 years to go for this. Firstly was because we hadn't a clue how the system works and secondly we're both still young. He's 20 and i'm 17.


Love hurts

When you live an ocean away

When you change your sleep schedule to catch a few more moments

When you really need to be held and you have to imagine whilst your partner describes it

When you constantly refresh the USCIS website to see if you're getting any closer

Love Loves

When it repays you with the love of your life

When God finally answered your biggest prayer

When you can live life again in the real world but still have that eternal connection

When you wake up for to the beginning of the rest of your life with the person you fought so hard for

When you love somebody that much

You'll do anything

I waited several months before filing mine, and I still haven't filed yet. Paperwork probably won't go out for another week though. We'd talked about filing it in November after she left, but we wanted to wait awhile. We're probably still filing a bit early, but my main goal is to have that thing out of the US and in Sydney ASAP. I'd prefer to file in May, but if I file now, it cuts down on the days to an NOA2.

I don`t think there are rules, you are ready when you feel ready- if for the two of you, that means you wait a while then for you, that is the only "pattern" you need to follow

:P that said: ours was a fast one.......hooked up oct 05, proposed nov 05, filed feb 06 :dance:
