I had to put my life on hold to follow my husband for the last 5 years. Most of my friends have amazing careers....and i'm struggling to get a basic job!
But It was all worth it because I love him. Sometimes life can be very challenging. I think..... If this is the most important person in your life..you should move to his country...live with him for a while....and then get married. Once you are married and have a successful relationship and enough proof, I'm sure they can't refuse a VISA.

I think it's hard to provide proof when you are both living in different continents.

Oh Melandabdul.

So sorry to hear that. I know nothing we can say here can make you feel better. You and your love just take time to talk things through and list down all options. Keeping you in our thoughts. xx

I know we are all still very sad about the news Mel received last week. Just wondering whether there is any good news from Berlin this week to raise our spirits?

It's been very quiet here.. With no visa granted at all this month. Well at least not on this forum. I've been checking my email very often the last few days.. But no news yet unfortunately.. I'm trying to keep myself busy and not think about it to much.. But that said I'm in Australia on a tourist visa now. So that makes it a lot easier not being separate from my love.. Hope we get some good news here soon.. Good luck guys

Any news here?

This is only my 3rd month since logging the forms.I know still have months to go and with depending kids i think the processing time will be a bit longer?

I havent heard anything for a month and she doesnt answer my email. Done medicals 6 weeks ago with my kids and havent heard anything about that either.
So i just have to wait some more i guess.

Sending everyone here some positive energy and stay strong in this waiting game.

Hi All,

I thought that it was time that i write and let you know what is happening with me and Abdul. Well the visa refusal really put shocks through us both, it was not at all what we expected. I did consult with Mark and also looked at it in details myself and it looks like they treated us very poorly. From what we can tell, the decision to refuse was made back in Nov but they waited until I started to stir things up looking for an update to give us an answer now in March.
The other thing is that they treated us with prejudice and discrimination in my opinion. One for Abdul's colour and race and the other for my mental health issues. A whole lot of good supportive information was minimised or discarded and statements in the refusal document showed that they had made their mind up and were only looking for information to support that position rather than taking an holistic look at our case on merit.
Anyway it is a machine and the dye was cast and there was nothing more to do in that instance but to look at the other future options. I know what I am going to say now with be difficult for many of you to understand and flys in the face of what we have all seemed to be fighting for all of this time...but I made a decision that it was the end of the road for me and that no other options were acceptable for me so that was the end of our process and the end of the line for Abdul and I.
My reasons for doing so are person but very much driven by my mental health and the stress and duress that this process has put me under thus far and the huge impact it has had on my well being.
I have seen my health decline significantly over the 6 months of waiting for this visa decision and I know that it has had a major impact on my quality of life and all relationships in my life.
It was an easy decision on one level as it is like asking a member of the public to perform a routine on the parallel bars that gymnasts use....it is just not possible or within their ability to do this....but on the other hand I was walking away from something very, very important to me.
So there you have it. The beginning and the end all in the power of the hands of the german based case office in Berlin. The nail in the coffin of our relationship sealed with the tap of the keys on her keyboard and we are done.
I'm sorry I couldn't be stronger...for me, for him, for you all...but this is what it is and life doesn't always turn out how we planned...but I have faith in God and that he uses all things for his Glory and that this was not a waste on any level as one day I will call on these experiences for my benefit.
Thank you all for sharing of yourself, your lives, your loves and your hopes and dreams. I wish you all well and pray that your outcome in no way resembles mine.
Bless you all.
Mel
xxx

Ohhh Mel, my heart goes out to both you and Abdul. I cannot begin to imagine how hard it was to come to this decision. God Bless you both and stay strong through this trying period. I keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I´m so sorry to hear you´ve decided this is the end of your and Abduls relationship,Mel.
This must be the hardest thing you´ve ever had to do,but since your health has declined you really have to put yourself first.
I´m not a believer like you,but I´m glad you have your faith so I just want to say don´t let this break either you or Abdul.
Take care of yourself and please don´t feel as if you weren´t strong enough.
It´s the system that failed you and I´m very,very sorry it had to happen to you of all people.
No one has been more encouraging here than you and you deserve a happy ending to your own lovestory.
You never know what life will bring you in the future,Mel.
Sending you big hugs... xoxoxo
