My Chinese husband and I, a US citizen, live in China because we can’t get a USA green card even though we were legally married in California in ‘08. We have lived together here for 18 years because we are not welcome in the USA under current law. Please repeal DOMA- Keep my family together in the USA!

Me and my husband on the day of our wedding in Canada. He’s Canadian, I’m American. We were so happy. Now we live apart because of DOMA. Please, help support bringing my family back together. Tell Congress to to repeal DOMA
We’ve been together for 13 years living in Australia where they have immigration for same-sex couples (and have had for many years now) We now need to be in Florida close to my partners 91 and 92 year old parents who increasingly need more support. DOMA makes it very difficult for us to be together as I cannot get a greencard and can only stay for six months at a time. It’s extremely difficult and not to mention very stressful. All I want to do is be here to help support my partner in caring for her aged parents. This is not a lot to ask. We are both highly educated professionals who can make a good contribution to this country. Please overturn DOMA so my family can stay together.
My family, my world, my everything… I married the love of my life on October 20th 2011 but because we’re a same sex couple “we don’t count.” She inspires me every day, she is simply amazing but because of DOMA our marriage even though legal does not count for immagration legalization…
Mr. President, I became a proud american citizen since 2006, and I have a partner. I met him here in USA in 2003, he is from Argentina and he was deported in 2004. Since that year, I had to travel every year to be together leave my country for 4 o 5 months to be with him, because he is my family, in March 2011 we got legally married in Argentina right after the law was passed and became legal the marriege equality in Argentina, but I still have to travel to see him. This is my country , I have my job here, but I can’t have my family. which is my spouse here with me, I asking you to help me and help thousand of couples in my situation whose family are not together. We need the same rights like everybody else in this country. Argentina offer same right to our marriege, but like i said before, here is my country, here I work and i had live here for 20 years.
Its very hard my situation and thousand of couples that live similar to us.
As American citizen we need to be hear and need to be together as a family.
Hi, I’m Jodi and my fiancee is Amanda. I’m scottish, she’s a dual citizen; American & Irish. We are sadly forced to live in Scotland, a country where we don’t really want to live. We want to live in America.
However same sex couples aren’t even considered for a greencard, It’s discrimination!
