Hi, I read about your problem and I decided to answer cause I do have abit experience on this matter, but I won't tell you that its better to marry there or here in Germany its up to you to decide after knowing my story, I will just tell you some facts what I did to shorten my stay there. It took me 6-8 months to complete all my papers and my visa ( some ladies at the embassy told me it will take long maybe 2 years perhaps ) but I didn't believe them and just go on with my plan, it would be earlier if I didn't forget the parents consent to marry In Germany or a German Guy . I apply for a FIANCE VISA and got married here in Germany. This kind of visa will give you 90 days to stay in Germany but at this period of time I think you will be married ( just have a Small wedding to shorten time and have a bigger one later ).if you decide to have a Fiance visa please verify first all the new laws and condition cause I apply for it last 2005 so maybe there are few changes happen. Ok By the was sorry for my grammar and no comma or periods cause Ich have keine los hehhehehehehe hope you can come here as soon as possible Gud Luck bye.
