The law for all marriage visa should change back to 18. 21years is too long to wait. The same law should also apply for HM force.
I don’t quite agree with the British marriage visa law that was changed to 21 in 2008. I got married at the age of 19 and am 20 now its been a full year full of hardship for me and my husband as we are separated by the law. I have waited a full year for the law to change and have been abroad 2 times in one year to visit my husband. but now its too much for me I am pregnant carrying complication and the least good that can happen is for my husband to be by ma side when I need him the most. The only communication I have had with my husband since I have been back is on the phone. I was patient until now thinking that the British law is fair. After hearing that the visa age for HM forces has lowered to 18 I am sorry to say but I don’t agree with the law it should be same for all civilians. We also are human and need our partners and miss them as much as others. it would be grateful if the law could change back to 18 because this is not going to stop force marriages and also parent have become much aware of what their children require in life and force marriages is something of the past. If the law was to change I thing, as well as may other people would agree, it should have changed for all civilians and if not then it should have remained same for all.
