4 Years ago I met my beautiful wife on line after having suffered a stroke.
I had memory loss & other health issues but eventually we met in Thailand & she has taken care of me even though I am not at all financially secure & have also suffered a heart attack whilst in Thailand.
My father who passed away last year was I don't mind saying a huge benefactor for us both financially & a rock emotionally.
I have since had to return to the UK or face loosing my income & my home.
However I have had to return without my loving wife who I miss so much.
I know we can see each other every day on skype after she is home from work ( she is a kindergarten teacher) but it is not the same as being together.
My wife was refused a visa to come & visit me for a holiday because to quote " in all probability she would not return to Thailand" .
She has been before without overstay & did not have any intention to reside here full time.
However unfortunately with the political situation both here & in Thailand preventing us being together for holidays or me staying longer than 4 weeks in Thailand we have realised the only option we have is for her to join me here on a permanent basis.
My wife is a hard worker & is more than willing to work & pay her way in the UK as she has done for 30 years in Thailand.
In fact her idea to start a small business caring for elderly people on thier own in the community will not only save the country money in caring for those peoples health & welfare but more than likely create employment over time for other staff.
We know that for 5 years she will not be entitled to a penny in state aid & would have no intention of gaining any even after that .
The costs for the process ( approx £5,000 all in) are just beyond both of us as I am on sickness benefits & my wife's salary just barely covers life's essentials for her & her mother.
I am just hoping that some kind people will help us be together & help us make a sucess of our mariage wich is at the moment being tested to the limits.
There is so much to tell but how too I am not certain
Surly we have rights to "A FAMILY LIFE "
Please help, thankyou in anticipation
