I came for love...

Union City, NJ

Hi everyone, I came here not long ago. Im born in germany and my parents are spaniards so I have no possibilitys to get a Permanent Visa. when I came here to visit my boyfriend it was nothing permanent. But after a while I knew I dont want to go back, it is not the country. I really love my boyfriend. together we tried to figur out how I can stay here legally. It was like a way without solutions…. My lawyer Tom from the LGBT Center told us I cant marry him because of a federal Law called DOMA (Defence of marriage act). Now Im here having feares every time when the Phone rings or someone is knoking at the door. Now that I have the hope that DOMA gets repealed Im a bit releaved. I really love my boyfriend and I dont want to face my biggest nightmear, to get torn appart from him. I hope for us all will change a Law where we can stay here withou fear to get cought. regarts Dave
