My FI is going to be start working with the state department as a foriegn service officer. This means he will be working at an embassy, domestic or foriegn. It has been recomended to us that we get legally married when he starts this process this fall so I can get my medical clearance and all the paper work will be done so I fall under his state department medical insurance and housing allowance etc. This way when he gets posted (possibly in a foreign country) I can A. be with him and B. don't have to go through a longer hassle if we wait for the legal documents when we have the ceramony.
If this makes any sense haha, I know it sounds weird and complicated. Really I don't know if I should agree and get legally married months before our actual wedding or say no I will go through the hassle of that documentation later after we have the ceremony? Thoughts please?
