canadawoman December 29, 2014 Share December 29, 2014 Thanks for all the info on the U.S. procedure. It's a bit different up in the Great White North since you don't have to be married to be a sponsor (common-law relationships work too as do same sex relationships). But the procedures to weed out sham arrangements is similar. Here's a legal conundrum to throw out there. What does constitute a valid marriage nowadays? In a sense, all marriages are marriages of convenience as long as both parties get what they think they contracted for. Danielle obviously thinks regular sex (or at least some sex) would be part of the deal so if she and Mohamed haven't slept together since the marriage, she could get it annulled. But she said, post wedding, that Mo could "help her make decisions" and "be part of the family" so that seems like a pretty low bar for him. If he can start bringing in a pay cheque and keep the electricity bills paid... maybe that's good enough? 1 Link to comment
