Hello there!

A little about me....

My name is Jon. I started talking to my now wife [biggrin.gif] in July 2010. We first met in Moscow in September 2010. Since then we have travelled to see each other many times, every 6-8 weeks. In April 2011 in St Petersburg I asked her to marry me and to my delight she said YES!!! We married in July 2011 in Moscow Zags 4. We applied for settlements visas for her and her son to come to the UK in late October 2011 and the Visas were approved on the 15th December 2011 and we will be together on the 23rd December forever!

Getting everything ready for the visa applications were months of worry, arguments and sleepless nights but we got there in the end and now when i look back it was all worth it!

I would be more than happy to answer any questions, give any help or advice to how we did it as i know what a difficult time this can be.

Thanks for reading my story!

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all.

Jon

We have meet elsewhere.

Have a great Christmas and a prosperous New Year.


You will soon be experiencing the joys of having a Russian wife with you in the UK.
Some of the joys are:

      A heating bill that will resemble the National debt.

      Having to constantly explain why not all the taps in the house are mixer taps.

      Your wife spending hours putting on makeup before she goes out to weed the garden.

      Takeaway food will be a thing of the past.

      You will loose control of your kitchen but then we all have to make sacrifices.

  • But believe me, it is well worth it.

      And instead of takeaways you will get to enjoy really good home cooked food.


These comments are to do with my experience and with the experiences of a few other people that I know.

John [welcome1.gif] to the Board.

Firstly I must congratulate you for having gone through this adventure successfully ..... finally you have joined our exclusive club! [clap.gif]

I think after all that long experience you need a bit of relaxation and you are at the right place to have a joke and a laugh, ..... before your Christmas presents arrive, from Russia with Love! ........ then you will become very busy and you will be up to your eyeballs!

Now I know that Raffi is well meaning and an amiable chap..... but do take notice to his comments, if you don't know already about it!

  • Remember when you enter your house to take off your shoes and put on your slippers.

  • Don't you dare to whistle in the house as it's bad luck!

  • When you are living the house be ready for the army major ..... clothes etc inspection. You have to be absolutely very smart.

  • If you ever find anything in the kitchen... where you left it or suppose to be, please report here! [wink.gif]

  • Going shopping ...... make sure you know the nearest caffe ...... she will be back after 3 hours, if you are lucky .... having spend no more than £5 because everything here in England .... it's so expensive! [sad.gif] [lol.gif]

  • and don't forget ...... RW never say sorry....... and takes long time to get use to say Please and thank you... otherwise, enjoy married life.
