It was some time ago when I first met my Ukrainian Wife. She was from the city of Lugansk, Ukraine. It is a medium sized city and about two hours away from the capital of Kiev. I can remember how hard it was to have to leave her after our short two week trips together.
No matter where I was at she was always on my mind. Back then my wife was my fiance and she did not have a car. She walked everywhere she went. With the economic situation in her country, I would constantly worry that someone would rob her or worst. I was always thankful to know that she had made it home safely from work and dance class.
I had been married in the past and then divorced. And it was nice to feel something so different and good in my life. Finally someone I could truly love with all my heart.
My wife was a good person and always protected my best interests. She was not the kind of person that would give into everything I would say. I appreciated that the most from her. I knew that together we could build a strong life together based on love.
Three years later we married. I started to dig into the K1 Fiance Visa Application Process. It was complicated, but I knew a bit about it already with my interest in law. She was very nervous when we started the process. She had so many worried in her head. I tried to calm her, but it was no use. She was so relieved to finally get the Visa and I myself was overjoyed. I was finally going to be able to spend my life with someone that was truly my equal in every way.
We married as soon as we could get to the Justice of the Peace. It was a happy day. She was nervous, but I think I was more nervous.
My wife is a great housekeeper and a wonderful cook. The days of eating sandwiches and frozen meals were gone. I felt like I had married a professional chief. Through her cooking, touch and smile I knew she loved me as much as I loved her. We spend a majority of our time together. Those are moments that I record in my mind and play them back at times when the night is quiet and she is sound asleep. Those are moments that I lock away to always remind myself why I married my wife. They get me through the rough times. It is a bond that can't be broken.
I am so glad I made the effort to go abroad and find the love of my life. If you are reading this and having second thoughts about find love abroad, I recommend doing it. The beauty and love you will find is reward enough for your efforts.
