As Valentine’s Day approaches, this is a story of true unwavering love, a story that spans nations, time zones, unimaginable challenges and life-changing decisions. With a legitimate marriage of four years and two bachelor’s degrees, my husband was still on the verge of deportation from the United States. What we did to stay together — in America — is a story of unquestionable love and dedication to marriage.
