I don't WANNA ... foreign spouses of US citizens


     Last night, I did not want to study for my upcoming certification exam.  Nope.  Let the book rot on the table.  My kitten and I wanted to scan photos like this one of me during a trip to the Jimmy Carter Center in Atlanta.  Maybe if I pretend with sufficient desire I won't even notice the test day coming at me like an unstoppable cyclone.
     My willing suspension of disbelief reminded me of K-3 visas, which are for foreign spouses of U.S. citizens.  They sometimes suffer from a variation of this drag-your-feet disease:  "I don't wanna give the government more proof than my marriage certificate."  Consular posts want proof that the marriage is valid.  The foreigner wants the K-3 visa so she can enter, live in and work in the U.S. legally.  What she sometimes doesn't want to do is gather the evidence that proves the marriage is valid (the photos, the insurance, the wills, the boarding passes of travels, the joint credit cards and joint bank accounts, just as examples).
     As I convince these foreigners of the absolute need for the evidence, I tell them the two phrases I told myself last night as I went to study.  The only two phrases that lead to a successful outcome:  I get that.  Now, let's do it.
