USA is an interesting place and I'd like to live there for a bit to get a feel for the place. It'd be easier if I was legal so are any of you Americans here interested in marrying/civil-uniting this New Zealander?

It'll still be another ten months or so before I have the money to leave. Married people do not have to live together or even in the same country, and NZ is much looser than the USA in it's defining of marriage so we'd be okay if we both lived in NZ for a bit. Yes it is illegal but the marriage-of-conveneience law is never enforced here. It's a bit like burning the flag.

Yeah it's illegal to burn the flag here but no-one has or ever will be prosecuted for it. Likewise its illegal to have a marriage of convenience but we all ignore that law too, because it's just there to reinforce class divisions.
