Which she now wants to. And also, of course, which country you pledge allegiance to, and which passport you hold. I met her in 1988 in Venezuela, and we married there. Married 29 years, and NOW she wants to become a citizen. Because of...well...I can't explain it. Except to say our political views vary. That's all I have to say about this, because the mods are dying to shut this down because it will be determined as political discussion, which is banned. I'm hoping she'll be deported tomorrow for lack of providing sex to her husband, but things are really screwed up here now.
