She has a police report?

Have you been to the police station or got any letters?

In which case you should get a lawyer.

If she manages to convince a Taiwan judge that you battered her, APRC will not be in the cards, you are likely looking at 2 months in the smaller and a deportation on top.

Stay married for now, and do not sign anything. patch things up, hell sleep with her if it makes her happy, but pull the time to you hvae 5 years on your JFRV, and then apply. You will need her help to get it, important.

I got my second divorce 3 weeks ago. She used the threat of a lawsuit to get half a million, fork over with a smile. I rather pay her off than go to court. The medical report showed a sprained ancle, by the way, however given that I run a business here and I rather not endanger anything, I was willing to do most in order to have her and the court case go away.

I will marry the first woman I make preggers, or not marry at all.

And thanks to the snip, you ought to be able to remain safely single for the rest of your days. Oh, lucky man!
If I prioritized the acquisition of wealth above other purposes in life, I might still have come to Taiwan to study Chinese, but I doubt I would have remained here.

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Marriage is a massive transfer of power from male to female. Unless kids are on the horizon, I see no reason to embark on that again.

- She wants security? Mutual trust has nothing to do with a marriage license, and what does she want security - IE money for if there are no kids and she can work?

- Commitment? You must be bad at putting your woman at ease if she needs a paper before she trusts you.

- What others think? If what her family and friends think are more important than your relationship, then your relationship is not meant to be.


Cohabiting couples in Europe are consistently happier than married folks, go figure.

I would in my heart prefer to live the way people are suggested to do in "Sex at dawn", a good read.

Divorce in 2012

Postby headhonchoII » 05 May 2012, 18:55

Cohabiting couples in Europe live in Europe, whereas we all live in Taiwan where there is no social welfare and cohabiting is not recognized. It's not a valid comparison.

And I'm not convinced that their kids will be happier when they break up as they often do. Notice a lot of me, me, me going on.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there

No, police never contacted me in person or through mail. She just went down there to fill out a report. I've done the same against her. I highly doubt it's on either of our records since no charges were actually pressed.....but I could be wrong.

Might be time to do some healing and let the personal bitterness go?

You want hate and anger, you will get it. You want to hate someone you can. Where will it get you?

Someone hates you? Stay calm even though it's not easy, every time you do you will have gained so much respect for yourself.

Good luck. I feel for anyone who is going through psychological hard times – regardless of how you got there.
Just checking but you're a South African Engrish Teachur right? No. I'm a Russian nuclear physicist.
