    It doesn't work for everyone. I know a couple of our online friends back then were buoyed by our success and jumped in to relationships too, all of which failed spectacularly.

    Yes, he and I didn't necessarily know everything about each other and we married exactly a week after meeting in person, but we were determined to make it work. Too many people give up at the first sign of trouble and take the easy way out instead of sticking around and working it out.

    did you meet over the net?
    Poor JC was paranoid that I'd make a joke about that, but I didn't get the chance. I wasn't asked anything! LOL.

    We actually met about 10 1/2 years ago in a Yahoo! chat room called "Love Stinks".

    I love it when someone says that. Means that they don't agree. LOL.

    I should have also added that by the time I got to the interview stage, my husband and I had been married for over 9 years, so obviously it was their belief that love was implied and didn't require the evidence they would have if we were newlyweds. It doesn't change the fact that neither of us were actually asked if we were in love.

    I don't think it really matters when it comes to immigration and the love debate, does it? The requirements for a K1, K3 or CR1/IR1 are the same when it comes to proving your relationship.

    Sorry Aroha, I wasnt sure[/QUOTE]

    No worries. We did try for K3, but by the time we got any response on that, we were almost at the Consulate stage with IR1 and had already paid all the fees.

    I should also add that while we provided only our marriage certificate, we were also not sent an RFE.

    If so, the evidence you attached with the petition was actually the proof.
    Now, I'm confused, why they invited you to the interview? And, what questions did they ask you?
    Actually, it was the interview for IR1, at the Consulate in my country.

    At the time we filed our I-130, we weren't asked to provide extra evidence other than our marriage certificate. The same was true when I appeared for my interview, along with our birth certificates.

    I was asked if I intended to work in the US and if my husband had enjoyed living in New Zealand. That was it. The entire interview took 10 minutes and most of that was getting fingerprints that hadn't come up clearly at the first window (we weren't even taken to another room - the interview was conducted at one of the other windows in the waiting area), and the IO explaining the concept of dual citizenship to myself and my sons.
