I see no one has replied to you so here goes:Do we still need to write two relationship history statement letters?
Yep, you still need to submit your statements in addition to the online application. You will both need to write your own, in your own words.
My husband and I were asked to write them again before we were approved - no explanation why, but I suspect the first lot got lost in amongst all our docs (we didn't economize our docs well and didn't know of the 60 doc limit).
We wrote basically the same thing second time round but I added an extra in the form of a very detailed timeline with photos, Facebook posts, excerpts from messages, phone logs and emails to each other, detailed info about decisions made about our relationship and the timing, wedding plans, travel plans etc. It was in a table format on a word doc turned pdf and was about 35 pages long. I left no stone unturned and it was a huge undertaking cause I fact checked/date checked everything. I should have done it from the start but honestly we jumped in head first and didn't have any idea what we could/should have as evidence.
All the best on your journey, Kirsty
