For the 1-129F, are signed declarations usually accepted as sufficient proof of intent to marry? I am wondering because my boyfriend (Spanish citizen) and I (US citizen) have only recently decided to go the K1 route, so we don't yet have a ring or any official wedding plans booked. We have been together for over 2 years and have lots of proof of in-person meetups and our ongoing relationship (plane tickets, AirBNB receipts, passport stamps, text messages, handwritten letters, photos, we know each other's families and friends well, etc). We have long discussed getting married but almost all of those conversations have been in person, so there's not a lot of written proof. I have seen lots of websites suggest including things like engagement ring receipts as evidence of intent to marry, although technically our signed declarations should be proof enough. How important is this "extra" evidence of intent to marry? We plan to buy a ring but this will probably take several months, and we would prefer not to wait that long to file the I-129F since we want to get a head start on processing time. Thanks very much!
