There is another member named "James" from the U.K. who planned his engagement in NYC on this site, and says he got engaged last New Years Eve. Here is one of his posts:

Hi, Rapunzel,lets clear things here.We live in england right now,my fiance has dual nationality,american and british.He holds two passports one for each country....we are coming to NY in december for a holiday and hope to get married,thinking it would be a straight forward thing.....go to city hall apply for a licence.get wed...but upon looking on internet researching the rules of this i got quite confused as to if visas need to be applied for?we plan to return back to the UK after our wedding then apply for my green card to enable us to eventually move to New York,until i get a green card thats impossible as i cant get a job.As for the other posts you asked about,i have no idea who they are......just goes to show how popular the idea of a new york wedding is to us brits hey.

Thank you for explaining things. I'm sure there will be people coming by to answer your questions. (I don't have the knowledge.)

I'm unclear if you are female, or if this is a same-sex union, and it is none of my business. I'll just point out that if happens to be a same-sex union, you may want to keep track of the status of NY Governor Eliot Spitzer's same-sex marriage bill.

Rapunzel, why would she know some random other people from the UK?

Also, there are tremendous differences between getting married and engaged, and there were absolutely no discrepancies between DJames' two posts.

I don't mean to call you out, but I'm really confused as to how this post raised any of those questions.

There are a great many coincidences among the people who hold the above four usenames. Some coincidences are easily apparent; some not. For the time being I'm treating everything as coincidence.

Added in for clarification:
"Above four usernames" = DJAMES, FrankHegley, jshortston, IrishBoy.

Are you serious? Please tell me what is so alike between DJAMES, MikeKruger, Lolita88, and Schadenfrau? Perhaps all 4 got together to promote visajourney.com... personaly I don't see members like Lolita88 and Schadenfrau doing that the other two who knows. Maybe the 4 you pointed out aren't the 4 you had in mind who knows who cares...

I really don't see the need to post this here... I thought the job of a mod was to keep convrsion on track and on topic, not throw a wrench in it herself and steer the topic off track which is what you have done by thinking out loud.

If you think something is up run the IPs and see what is going on if they match, come from the same area, or come from the town in AZ visajourney.com has the conact info for you caught yourself a spammer. No need to create drama annoucing "we got us a mystery here" before you know what is going on.

My apologies if I caused some discomfort. One thought of mine was that you belonged to the same circle or network of friends as the other three members (in red); that appears to not be the case.

Please feel free to ask as many questions as you wish. There may be disagreements on this site at times, but there are things upon we agree: the international transactions concerning your marriage should go as smoothly as possible, and your wedding in New York City should be a wonderful, memorable experience of a lifetime. We're here to help you facilitate this.

Heres my thinking out loud (somebody who knows can let you know for sure). You say you have people interested in you as a nanny right? Is it possible to ask if any of them can sponsor you for a greencard, employment visa or whatever it is until you get your greencard for marriage?

DJAMES
June 8th, 2007, 08:52 AM
I thought that may be a possibility too,but it makes me less desireable as an employee if they have to sort out sponsorship or visas,and it also takes quite a while for it too get dealt with.Its quite pricey too.We are looking at moving over there next year now,realistically it cant happen any sooner....we have jobs here and a mortgage to take care of before we up and leave, once we are wed in december :) i can apply for my own visa then i will definitely put the wheels in motion with prospective families,we really want to live in NY and cant wait tho :D........thankyou for your suggestion:):D:)

Suggestion: Wait two months till Leap Year Day '08, go down to City Hall, get hitched. We did it in '84 and it's still a good story.:)
