The course of true love never runs smooth. Or does it? those of you who follow Wisequeen's posts, will remember my advice to one lovestruck women invited to Rome by an Italian. So I got her update last week. I was completely unaware of the redtape involved even if he turns out to be the love of my life. So thanks for your good advice. I have now suggested to him that he needs a nulla osta to prove his marital state. He says it won't be a problem. Also I checked back on his letters,and what he said was not "if problem we marry". but instead, I have no problems about marriage. I have followed your good advice and he is coming to my country for a month to meet my family and friends, so we can experience each other face to face as you suggested and not just on a webcam. I have also been honest to him that I don;t have money to offer the relationship. He has no problem with that. After the holiday we can make a descision. I was not aware of a large cultural difference and now will be more aware of it when i come to Rome. So thanks for your advice which came just in time. Shirley Care to comment, have an opinion to add to those already here on this. Has a similar thing happened to you?
