I’ll Totally Trade You A Green Card For A Diamond Ring

So there’s this guy I’m infatuated with. I have literally wanted him to ask me out for 6 months, and he finally texted me a couple weeks ago. (AHHH!!!<333) It wasn’t an “I’ve been in love with you all this time!” text, but he asked how I was so I passed out.┬áBaby steps, you know?

There’s just one tiny issue…He’s not American. I don’t think it’s a serious thing, but I guess if something bad ever happened, it could be.

Anywho, when I told every single person I’ve ever met in my life that he and I were talking, my friend Joe said, “This is your opportunity! Tell him if he marries you, he gets a Green Card!”

I stopped dead in my tracks.

“Jen, I was joking, don’t be mad,” he said.

“Who’s mad?? That’s a GREAT idea!!!”

Joe just shook his head in disbelief.

I wonder how I can work this into a conversation on our first date.

“So, listen, Lorenzo, I noticed you seem to have a spot in your wallet where your American Green Card should be. Hey, look at that, I also noticed my left ring finger is completely naked. How interestingggg….”

We shall see my friends! I’ll keep you updated…

Do you know anyone that married someone or was married for a Green Card?

  1. I had a friend who used to date a Mexican who was here illegally. They did talk about marriage like that, but I hope you know that if you do only marry an illegal for benefits that is illegal to do so within itself and if you get caught, you could go to jail for a fraudulent marriage. For future reference, I would only date someone who is legally here in the U.S. I don’t want to mess with the legal/illegal status business. Relationships itself are already complicated as is without the legal/illegal status.
