Would you?

So, my plans have taken a step back. Tips from the trenches is needed, because only someone thats been there before can truly get 'it'.

In theory, less than 9 months from now, my husband will [isA] be on his way here permanently. This is our hopes, and seems like a reasonable expectation all things considered, but who ever knows, right?? So we were thinking to do this Egypt trip for me (my first) in December when it costs a soul's worth to travel. Its the only time I'll have in the next 9 months to travel unfortunately.

Neither of us has a huge savings, especially not with the traveling and immigration costs. Students and teachers are not the best paid individuals, y'know? So we can't decide if its irrational to spend near 2000$ to travel and see each other. is it important for our immigration case at this point? We could conceivably know our interview date by then. Would you personally spend the money to see your spouse/SO knowing that 9 months you could be immigrating and could use all the extra cash to get started here?

We're both trying to reconcile emotion with logic and we are failing to see which is the best option.

Go take the trip. I still regret all the trips I could have taken but never did because I justified it with logic being in the same place as you are. You never know what's going to happen and it's better to be together when you can then wait a very long time to see each other again. Days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months and months into years. Don't let the years pass you by. Be with the ones you love most.

Do it.

I understand you are shooting for nine months, but (as we all know) with AP and such, it's hard to predict exactly when.

Have him book your ticket from Egypt, when December is not the height of travel season. He should get a much better price that way.

Besides, winter is citrus and strawberry season in Egypt!
