Would you marry someone to give them the green card?
What Guys Said 31
Marriage fraud for the purpose of evading US immigration laws is a felony and anyone convicted of this crime can be sentenced to a prison term of up to 5 years.
Would I do it? Hell no!
In order for someone to acquire a green card through marriage, they have to live with their partner for at least 2 years. That's a huge commitment and I'm not willing to do that just to get someone in the country.
i can't say 100% that I wouldn't consider it but my feeling at the moment is that I wouldn't
there would hve to be very specific terms negotiated up front for me to consider it
Ummm... nope, I believe there is a lot of extensive effort and forms involved in proving that you are not just trying to get someone a visa. I believe there are hefty fines also, if the border police find you out!
Would that affect how other girls see me cause I feel like I could do that bullshit.
I want to help people who really deserve a better life in my eyes but if that person comes asking me for it I wouldn't, it has to be my choice to do that shit. I want to help if I see the person is truly cleansed and not just a dickrat

No, it can be a serious issue. Not worth the potential problems from doing it
I seriously considered doing it once. I don't remember the details, but I think I came right out and offered it. This was not 100% about a visa though. We were pretty close, so it wouldn't have been a total sham. I wouldn't have gotten married otherwise, but I could have seen living together.
If you are considering doing this, I'd be very careful and make sure you know the guy very well. Even if you think it's for a green card, it's still a legal marriage and all the things that go with that.
Also, you know that even if you get married, a green card, or even a visa is not automatic? You would start with a visa and you'd have to sponsor him. Meaning you have to show financial responsibility to support him. It's not much, but you do need some income. Once you get a marriage visa, the green card is still not automatic. It can take a while to get one.
My Eastern European co-worker married a crack addict so he could become a U. S citizen. My class mate in college was gay and from South America he paid a woman 10k to marry him so he could stay.
Nope, cause chances are they would be using me and could dump me afterwards.
How would i know they were marrying me for real love?
This whole anchor baby/green card marriage thing is just something white Americans say to make themselves feel good. Truth is, people stopped doing that a LONG time ago.
NO, unless they are fine with me having four wives and they are from saudi arabia. If so , that is my fantasy.
There's a market for that
They usually would offer money... if heardpeople offering up to $50000 to do a fake marriage
lol no I wouldn't marry someone with that sole intent.
if they pay me xD also: could i divorce directly after it?
I'd imagine girls would never do this but men would
no. Do it the right way and stop being lazy.
no lol. that's their fucking problem, not mine.
I wouldn't do that.
yeah, but they better pay up somehow

Yes as long as we were open with each other about it. There are far worse reasons to get married that people do all the time.
There must be some waiting time before the person is able to get to the country and the person sponsoring him or her also needs to provide proof they were dating and visiting them in their country before granting a visa to them.
You can get paid around 10 grand for doing that (there is a big market for it). That would be illegal though, keep in mind.
I wouldn't marry someone just because of that. I would marry someone because I love him and I'm attracted to him.
no. marriage isn't a game to me. i take it very seriously and its not a favor i would do for someone
Surely not. If I'm going to marry somebody it will be because of love.
No. Please do not do this :(
Oh my gosh, no.
I wouldn't do that if I were in their place..
ummm marriage is sacred for me, so no
ew no, I only want one marriage, and that is for love.
Nope. There is enough flouting of rules to get into a country only to destabilise it from within. It's love or nothing.
