    green card

    Discussion started by ubejinxed - Oct 18, 2002

    If a person you loved needed a green card, would you marry them, even if you didn't necessarily want to spend the rest of you life with them? Say if this person did not get their green card they would continue to live as a non-person in their country of domicile, can't go back to their home country to see their family if they want to come back here and could possibly get deported. You would have to be married for 2yrs for them to become a legal resident alien.

    would you tell your family? would you keep it quiet until the waiting period of 2yrs is up?

    what do you think.

    i know it sounds righ t, but stuff like this always gets weird and youll be tied up with this person in an odd way that may get hard for you. but i know saying no will be hard too. be REAL careful with what you choose

    Hmm. are you speaking from experience? Like, are you going through that right now?

    I really don't know.........
    I don't think I would. Only if I loved them and wanted to be with them forever, then of course yeah. But if not, nah.. i can't do it...

    reminds me of that rocko's modern life episode.. i fucking miss that show.

    ok yah i'm going through it.

    i live with him. i lived with him and his mom and dad for two months. he's gone on trips with my dad, met all my family. he's helped me build my house.

    i dunno. i want to help and i love him but... i only want to get married once.. i've been struggling with this for the past year. i mean what's the big deal anyways, but it really is for me.

    sigh. the time draws nigh

    i knew a hippie girl and two of her friends who did this for a meager sum of cash...roughly $1000

    they knew some, say, Polynesian immigrants who were good people and just needed to find a way to stay in the lovely u.s.

    they all got married in simple ceremonies...one of the hippie girl's boyfriends even attended

    when i heard all this, two of the girls were talking about 'their husbands' in casual conversation..the boyfriend of one was sitting right there...they told me the circumstances (just like i said, some random dudes needed to stay in the country), the boyfriend was just nodding and smiling..

    truthfully, i was taken aback..after all, i do have some respect for the institution of marriage...these kids just did not give a fuck, not the girls, not the boyfriend...apparently, the husband was a safety net...the girls would call 'em if they were desperate for a little cash...other than that, they didn't really see or speak to each other

    i kinda couldn't believe it..the girls seemed a little young (at the time of marriage, 20-23) to have written off marriage to the point that they would marry a stranger for what amounts to a couple bucks..

    oh well....diff'rent strokes i guess.

    it doesn't seem like you guys are going to eventually get married (to me, a total and complete stranger so maybe i'm wrong)..this is more a favor to him..

    if that is the case, discuss this at length in case the day comes that you want a divorce because you want to go your own way

    you 2 have to decide if its for love (doesn't seem like it if you're asking this)
    or if its for convenience, and maybe passion

    he may be worth it, after all, either way...only you can decide what you are willing to sacrifice for him

    your car insurance will drop at least, but ask yourself are there any benefits to you?
    of course, you will get to stay with him and maybe earn his undying thanks, but that does not guarantee undying love

    basically, have no illusions about this.

    i would. if i loved someone, and if it didnt necessarily mean that we would be together forever, it wouldnt matter to me. i love my friend and would do anything to have them stay here.

    i love my friend but i cant marry her. she's here for a while now, she lost her passport and its expired too. so she's sorta stuck here with no form of ID. there were ideas passed around for someone to marry her but no one would do it. if she leaves the country, the gov. will find out that she's over stayed with no passport and send her ass back for a very long time.

    so she's basically staying here until she feels like she wants to leave.
