Could You And Your Partner Pass A U.S. Immigration Marriage Interview?

How well do you actually know your romantic partner? Find out with these questions.

If you're a U.S. citizen and you want to marry a foreigner, part of the process involves an interview about your relationship.

Part of the application for the foreign spouse's green card includes an in-person interview with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. In it, an immigration officer will question the couple to make sure the marriage is legit and not, as they say, a "green card marriage." While the interview usually includes basic questions about the relationship — when did you meet, how did your courtship progress — immigration officials may also ask very specific questions about your significant other.

The following are potential questions that could be asked, culled from newspaper articles, immigration lawyers, and testimonials. So, you know, don't treat this an official preparation of any kind because there are a lot of different factors that go into that interview. This is a quiz and it's supposed to be fun, mmmkay?

RULES: Check off each question you know the answer to. If the question doesn't quite apply to you and your S.O., check it anyhow. (For example, if it's a question about your S.O.'s job, but he/she's unemployed, still check that question.)
