I'm new in this thread. I did applied in Madrid but my CO has been assigned in Berlin.

You can see in my signature the timeline. My medicals were received in Berlin on the 11th of June and I don't need to send any other documents, just wait...

So, I'm waiting and I don't have any clue if I will be granted and when.

I will follow this thread closely. Thanks!

My understanding is that the Spanish Embassy is overload with student and working visas, so I think they are using COs from other Embassies. I think my case is quite robust as I've married to my sponsor for 5 years and living together 6. In any case, the process is long and you don't know what's going on... I think this is why I'm getting very addicted to this forum.

Thanks!

Probably a lot of southern europeans are running away from Eurocrisis and record unemployment to Australia to find work.
Requests of Working Holiday Visa from Italy have increased dramatically (100%), but still, luckily, not many partner visa requests from Italy.
Probably we usually marry... Italians (I might be one of the few exceptions: I married a pure anglosaxon)
There is a idiomatic say in italian "Mogli e buoi dei paesi tuoi"
"Cattle and Wives from your own village" (not very nice to put together cows and women, eh!)

Personally I find it very fascinating when people of different backgrounds create a couple/family. They can make each others life so colourful and adventurous, and their kids gain a lot by being born in mixed familes, for example, speaking several languages right from the start (our daughter speaks 3) So its ok if cattles and wives are from different villages))

Haha I agree Lilia....i think is a really cool thing when your child has more than one first language and the cultural mix is really interesting. I think it makes things fun. Although you are always learning about your partner no matter where they come from, I feel like I'm REALLY always learning about my partner....our culture and way we were raised are quite different....I think it's really cool to have a partner from another country

It's true. I agree having a foreign partner is very interesting because you learn things about yourself that you would have never discovered. There is also a cultural gap you have to fill.
I had some funny remarks about my way of expressing my feelings and thoughts: too opinionated and very assertive (!!).
Any italian man would have found my behaviour perfectly normal and very very calm compared to average italian wife!
So I started to see myself and the way I act in a different way. Good exercise.
Of course I have problems in understanding my husband because I expect things that are normal for me and not for him.

Anyway, let's see what will happens once I get that Visa...
Berlin, Berlin, answer me!!

Well, nothing wrong with being opinionated and assertive, its your individuality. I have seen many times in Italy that what seemed like people were about to kill each other , in reality was a nice and friendly conversation

I hear from many people that Danes are considered to be cold and emotionless people, and in many ways its true but then again, its our individuality Without that we would not be Danes)))

My fiance and I are both from the US... but he speaks German fluently, and I speak Spanish fluently... so we intend to have some multilingual children!
