I long for the day when this burden will be ltfeid. After my partner (an Italian citizen) and I were married last year in NYC, I left the U.S. so that we could be together. This was after he was denied a student visa to the U.S. I’ve been in Italy 4 months now and finally received legal residency just 1 month ago. My timing could not have been more perfect. This is where Italy has one up on the U.S. As of last October, Italy began permiting legal residency to foreign nationals who were married abroad to an Italian citizen. Until DOMA is struck down, we’re doing pretty good here but we both want to come back to the U.S. as soon as possible.
