    Marrying between countries

    Forgive me if this isn't relevant here.

    But I wondered what people did for those in international LDR's. Did you have one wedding in one country? Or did you decide to have two 'weddings', or one wedding in one country and another kind of celebration in the other country (e.g. perhaps the engagement party or coming back in a few months for a small ceremony). I'd just love to chat with people on what and how it was decided.

    My oldest sister just had one Westernized ceremony in the country her husband came from...my other sister had a western wedding/reception here and a traditional wedding/reception in her husband's country. I guess it's all about what you want to do.

    It depends a bit on visa issues and how easily movable people are and the cost of the party/parties. For us, it would be simpler to marry in his country because his relatives would not get visa to my country, it would also be cheaper. On the other hand, immigration is easier if we marry in my country. So one option could be to split the legal wedding ceremony from the actual "bigger" wedding party, and have just an initimate second wedding for the legel ceremony. My friend did it like that with his now Turkish wife, and they were able to have a big party in her home town as well as a fast immigration process.
    I made love to him only twice, she thought and looked at the man laying asleep beside her. And yet still it is as if we have been together forever, as if he has always known my life, my soul, my body, my light, my pain
