I agree, nothing good can come from this 'advice'. Especially if she's read this board before. Whatever you say, she will do what she has planned, come hell or high water.

Best to stand aside and let her find her own way. Hey, maybe she'll meet this guy and decide not to go through with it. Either way, I'm afraid your friendship will suffer in the future.

Be a real friend and let her have this.

Nobody's promised tomorrow.

You're not making sense.Define "help". Help her learn to think for herself?

Help her land a Dominican with grooming tips? Help her marry the Dominican? Help her avoid marrying the Dominican?

You're all over the map. And you still haven't explained how you're involved.


You left out, help her with the directions to the nearest WU in order to support a new husband with 2 children in the DR.:classic:

Does she know with the fiancee visa she has to sign a affidavit of support that basically states she will be sued by the US govt if he ever gets food stamps or assistance and such?

An affidavit of support is a document an individual signs to accept financial responsibility for another person, usually a relative, who is coming to the United States to live permanently. The person who signs the affidavit of support becomes the sponsor of the relative (or other individual) coming to live in the United States. The sponsor is usually the petitioner of an immigrant petition for a family member.
An affidavit of support is legally enforceable; the sponsor's responsibility usually lasts until the family member or other individual either becomes a U.S. citizen, or can be credited with 40 quarters of work (usually 10 years).

FYI I am fully aware about support and what it means

She went from coming to meet the guy to getting a spousal visa? Something, something is not right with this whole picture. Advice to the OP, stop posting about this womans life...Your making her sound like a desperate fool with each post. You have gotten your "advice" that you asked for. Now let it go. You know the saying..with friends like you........
