Yes, I think you're both right, it doesn't matter if it's someone you love but at the same time it's an awful lot of money to lose. That's exactly the reason I've been thinking through our chances for the last four years! I think we have almost decided to apply, but there is still a lot of uncertainty which of course makes everyone nervous.

I was a child immigrant with my parents myself a couple of decades ago and comparing what things were like back then for migrants to now... it's just that the fee in itself sometimes makes me think that Australia is still the lucky country - but only if one has already been lucky.
