in response to reader comment: Marriage

Submitted by Shömi, Jul 4, 2019 at 16:22

Hi Didi,

You beat me to it. I'd be extremely anxious leaving any legal matters undone. In the upcoming decades the immigration laws, technology and life in general can and WILL take many unexpected turns.

Sorry to say, but cheating is not a crime and if these guys are determined enough, they will find a way to immigrate. At some point they may enter US as European citizens, army informants, competing athletes, you name it.

Bigamy is the least of our worries. Once the marriage license is recorded into system, they become our lawful husbands (citizens or not), and as such they are entitled to half of what we own, in some cases making critical medical decisions on our behalf, inheritances, life insurance payouts, weighing their credit debt/medical bills on us, etc. It's a dark and unlikely scenario, but why not ask for a signature, while they still can be located. I'm writing this in good faith ladies. Been there, done that.

Love,
Shömi
