I got some news about our honeymoon that has left me so brokenhearted, I just needed to someone to listen. You girls are pretty understanding, so I thought I would share here.
My FI is a Brazilian national, and our immigration lawyer tells us we need to go on a domestic honeymoon to avoid visa troubles. I had set my heart on going back to Germany, where my FI and I met. That was the happiest time of life, and I wanted to relive it again. Also, it will have been five years between when we first started dating and when we will get married! As Christians, we have been waiting until marriage, and we haven't even travelled alone together. When we were living in Germany, I gave up travelling through Europe just so I could spend my time with my FI. I've been so patient for so many years, and I'm afraid we'll never get a chance to go after the honeymoon due to finances, work, grad school, etc.
Also, I'm just getting tired of U.S. immigration laws getting in the way of everything. My FI and I had to spend two years long-distance between different continents, and we had to go through a lot of headache for him to get a job in the U.S. I know it will all be worth it in the end when he finally gets his greencard, but why couldn't it just be eaiser? :-(
