Have any of you ever felt like just giving up on the immigration process and moving to your spouses home country ? I know others wait a very long time , but I’m getting to the point of just giving up and being with him. The only thing is we have gotten so far I don’t want to feel like we didn’t try....but I don’t know I miss him a lot ...someone slap some sense into me :( #frustrated 

 

Stage:  waiting for the interview date..

I've been there and felt that way.  But just wait.  My husband has been here almost 4 years and is a Citizen now.  Once it is all over and he is with you the waiting will be a distant memory.  But I do remember the agony of the waiting and I feel for you.  Just hang in there.  It is almost over.

You are almost there if you are awaiting an interview.   Hang in there.  Be glad you aren't waiting 9 months for an interview like Ciudad Juarez.

 

Make a trip to see him if needed.

Yes, probably everyone has felt that way. We started with my husband moving to my country (the UK) but he was denied. So then we started the process of me moving to the US. All told, it took 2 years for us to be together. It was horrible but once it was all over all that waiting and separation was just a distant memory.

The last bit is always the hardest. It's because you are so close to the finishing line. Don't give up!! Your happy ending is just around the corner. Ive been in America just over 2 weeks now. And just like you I was starting to lose hope especially being so far in my pregnancy. I didn't think I was going to be over here in time. But here I am!!!! You will be reunited soon.

I also feel frustrated right now and I am constantly worried that they will deny my visa at the interview, we are waiting for a year and a half already and still don't have an interview date,

we were apart for a year and 4 months without seeing each other until we went on our honeymoon that only lasted one week, I thought being with him for even this short time will make the wait easier but it made it harder, now I miss him even more...

Thank you all for sharing...I think I may just make a short trip..it’s hard to convince work since I already have time off for the interview whenever that is...but maybe I will split it up sigh ...but you all are right we are so close to the end to give up now :)

At least you’re already at the interview stage.. U are way closer than I am.  Hang on you’re almost there.. compared to my case it’s still in the hands of Nebraska.. I wish I was in your place.  I miss my wife very much and I agree.. it’s frustrating.. and at times I don’t know how much patience I have left....

For me, immigrating there is not free ofworrying either.

Sometimes, I read all these posts and I really wonder : is there not any worry because of immigrating to a new country and anxiety to find a job there?Does being with your spouse is what matters only?

I wonder if any other spouses have these worries.
