I’m just wondering if there’s any way I can get some sort of permanent status here through my girlfriend. We’ve been together for two years (most of that was spent in France, I’m American though). I have an ARC here, but we’re planning on moving to TaiChung. With all the moving around, finding jobs, changing schools, etc. I got to thinking that maybe I could get some sort of more permanent status than a student or work visa.
i know this is a long shot, but I’m just wondering if we can use this to our advantage.
Marriage isn’t an option. Because our situation is a little different (meeting in France, living there for a couple years, moving to Taiwan), she hasn’t even met most of my family yet (or even been to the US), and I’m one of those people that couldn’t get married without her having met my family.
For now, at least. It’s seeming more and more that marriage for us is a more practical than anything.
