Hey all, I am in a tricky situation right now and wanted to get some advice from the community if anyone has been in the same situation or would be able to share any advise on this. Long story short, I have to renew my Malaysian Passport soon and in the renewal forms, it asks to disclose my marriage status. I got married in the US and have received my CR-6 conditional green card, however since it is a same-sex marriage, Malaysia would not recognize this. I initially intended to disclose my marriage status as single (since Malaysia would not even recognize my marriage status) however in order to submit an application to renew my passport, they would need to have a copy of my Green card. In the GC, it says CR-6, which is obvious I am married. However, if I disclose that I am married, I have to state my partners name, which is clearly a male name. Im afraid that by disclosing this, the Malaysian consulate may suspend my citizenship or pursue some other severe measures that would affect my malaysian citizenship. I would like to source some advise from this wonderful community and what you think I should do. Thank you so much in advance!
