Do you miss your partner

I miss my wife
I miss not waking up in the morning with my wife beside me.
I miss holding hands with my wife.
I miss cuddling my wife.
I miss talking to my wife.
I miss going to sleep at night without my wife beside me.
Oh God, I just miss my wife

I am so sorry, iduno.

I miss my fiance like crazy. We've been engaged and apart since October. When he was here visiting for two weeks and I had to take him to the airport and send him back to Oz I almost lost it. You're not alone.

I have to admit, I sometimes get really jealous of people who get approved so quickly and easily. We are going to have an epic uphill battle with the medical component of my visa application, and we could be denied. The wait for us is going to be MINIMUM probably 9-10 months, and we're from a low-risk country. It's possible we could even be looking at longer than a year. All because I have a medical condition I can't do anything about. And that's on TOP of the months we waited for them to process his permanent residency so we could even apply.

I'm happy for my friends here who get approved, don't get me wrong, but when I see people post things like "That took six months! It was FOREVER!" I think man, I'd give anything to only have this be a six-month process. I'd be done by now!

I personally think it's discriminatory to even take people's health into account at all, if they're not contagious and therefore a public health risk. If a couple can prove that they are a GENUINE couple, it shouldn't be up to bureaucracy whether or not they get to live together in one of their own countries. I understand certain health conditions can be astronomically expensive, but that's simply too bad.

A country should not be like an insurance company that takes all your money for years, assuring you they'll take care of you should you need them to, and then when you need something expensive (like bringing in a partner with an expensive health condition) denies you because the cost of what you need is too expensive. You have citizens and permanent residents who make Australia their home, pay taxes, and contribute to the economy. Deciding they can't be with the person they love is beyond unfair.

I hope your visa is approved and I can not understand why the approval process takes so long in a low risk country, where as the Philippines is high risk and visa's are issued quicker.

I am out in the jungle running an oil exploration program and as its rough and tough out here , I don't have anyone that I can talk to about personal things
I woke up this morning and had a txt from my wife wishing me happy wedding anniversary, felt a bit lonely and decided to start this thread.

We are one of the lucky couples as I go over to see her every couple of months and my last contract was in the Philippines , its just a bit hard being apart on this day.

6 months average processing time for straightforward US PMV applications + 4 months added wait time if your medicals are referred (we already know mine will be) = 10 months, PLUS whatever time it takes to see the specialists they could decide to make me see at my own expense, specialists of their own choosing and get those reports to them, PLUS whatever time it then takes them to (HOPEFULLY) offer us a health waiver, work on that with our migration agent and get it submitted, PLUS whatever time it then takes them to make a decision.

Keep you chins up and collegegirl things will work out. I have been waiting 8 months as well and I totally get your frustration when others say 6 months boom done deal....but at the same time I have glad for them as well. That's what the world is about, unpredictability, up and downs, but we will be stronger after the fight whereas if anything else comes our way we should handle it with no worries. Big Huggs! BTW I haven't seen my fiance's for 15 months so my heart is with you as well. Stay strong darlings

I even miss being pissed off at him for doing dumb boy things like scaring the crap out of me for a lark.

Why do guys insist on doing that?

Oh my goodness. I have just spent three months with my fiancÚ and again have to left in two days as I ran out of money to stay here. Every time I leave I'm hysterical in tears and then I'm home and I'm miserable. I have been travelling back and forth for two years. My heart can't take it anymore. I have made a decision if the embassy don't accept is that ill move with him and work and wait to re-apply. Unfortunately I will be living in Mexico a third world country and I would only earn about $400 a month. So when we do re-apply it would probably take two years by the time it's been finalised which means I won't see my family or my country for that duration.

I'm just hoping that they accept our visa because I just can't suffer more pain of being away from the ones I love. Especially my man.

I just think these types of visas are ridiculous to the point that they would understand you being away from each other during the process. Isn't re whole point to be that your together and you have continued that. It's just so difficult. When I hear about couples in my country who say they miss their boyfriend/girlfriend whom they haven't seen for a week or a month is beyond me. Living in totally different countries and not being able to see them for months on end, we truly know what it's like to miss the one person you love.

I always try and focus on when I will see him again maybe that can help you too but I know it doesn't take the pain away. I wish you both a very happy wedding anniversary and yes I can only imagine its definitely not the same when your apart. Design something or get something to send her or even have ready when you see her next so that you don't feel like you have really missed out on your special day.

This is why my fiancÚ is living with me now while we wait for her PMV to be processed. We choose not to be apart anymore.

I'm jealous of that, too. Really wish we could do that - but moving me over there is expensive, the big wedding we want to have back here is expensive, the ring he's buying me is expensive, getting my cat over expensive... it just would not be a good financial decision for me to quit my job so I can go wait with him. Sometimes being an adult SUCKS. :P
