geoffreysinclai 1 | 8 14 Dec 2010 #1I am married and have been since 1997. I lived in Poland many years. We decided to come to the United States to make money and then to return to Poland to buy an apartment and live there. My wife changed her mind and met another man. I refused to give her a divorce.My whole life was wrapped into returning to Poland. I love Poland. Don't ask me why, but it is all I think about. Since our separation I was able to return to Poland, but only as a tourist. I never acquired permanent residency.Without her I am severed from the only country in the world I have ever loved. I feel homeless. I don't care now if I am there with her or without her. I just want to be there. I want to work there doing anything. I want to live there the rest of my life.Is there any hope that I can obtain residency based on this marriage or is it hopeless. I know she will not cooperate with me on this. I often think of just returning there and taking my chances. But if I overstay my visa I could be barred from Europe for many years. I couldn't stand it. I think I'd prefer to be dead.Is there any hope of me ever living in Poland again?
