in response to reader comment: S. Korea

What exactly is your ex doing in S. Korea? I've heard alot of Moroccan men are making their way there.

He went because he was tired of waiting for USCIS to review is petition, he couldn't get a visa to any European country (he tried), and he had a friend there who had found work. Moroccans don't have to jump through as many hoops to get a visa into the Asian countries, and apparently the pay is better in South Korea than in Morocco, if you don't mind doing low-skilled jobs and can find them.

What kind of work are they finding not speaking the language? I assume they are there trying to scam some unsuspecting Korea girls and fish for social services.

He is doing work where a minimum of the language is required. He started off with a fishing job, then went on to factory/line work as jobs became available. He got his alien registration card based on seeking asylum (he lied about being persecuted in Morocco for being an atheist) which does entitle him to social services there. It can take a year or longer before they process his application for asylum, so he is free to do what he wants while he's waiting. From what I read online, less than 0.02% (not 2%) of applicants are actually granted asylum, but he seems to think his narrative is beyond question (just like his responses during his visa interview to the U.S., lol). Based on the photo he inadvertently sent to a Moroccan friend through our shared Facebook account, he was definitely already trying to hit up unsuspecting Korean chicks.This while claiming to want me to come to South Korea to be with him, and while he was leading on a girlfriend in Morocco. Disgusting, no?

I'm sure they aren't taking advantage of any kind of universities or education programs. Because I saw none in Europe doing anything to actually better themselves.

He claimed to be interested in at least learning Korean, because his alien registration card also supposedly entitles him to free education. If he exerts himself as much as he did trying to learn English while he was in Morocco, it will be a waste of everyone's time, but I think it behooves him to learn the language so he can get better work. Is he better off in South Korea than in Morocco? Definitely, but I'm sure his preference was to come to the U.S. He doesn't have a wifey to support him there, but knowing his wily ways and what a Casanova he is, he'll probably find one in short order. I can only hope the S. Korean officials see through his little game and deport him back to Morocco. It's really sad that someone who cares nothing about who he screws over will probably get away with it. He's gotten away with it so far. At least ultimately he didn't get away with doing as much to me as he had planned.
