Actually yes, but you would need to have a good reason.

Usually the only thing that flies is the petitioner being on active US military service. Other than that, probably not.

Thanks everyone for replying. I was asking on behalf of a friend. She went home one day and her hubby was gone. He's back now though. She asked me and I told her its not possible but she said someone told her that its possible. I told her if he's in the military, yeah but other than that, very unlikely.

The chances for a successful interview will be less if the USC spouse doesn't go.

You're correct. She would have to have an extremely good reason and proof (military, sudden hospitalization, etc.) ... they want to see a bonafide relationship and that is hard to do if the spouse isn't even committed enough to show up.
