These shows were people have a long distance relationship with someone who is not a citizen, they get married within 90 days and in the next scene they are running to each other in the airport to start their life together is RUBBISH. At least, that was not my guest's, Jessica Stephens, experience.

Jessica Stephens is a corporate marketer turned social marketer, online entrepreneur and podcast host who found love with a pilot in the United States. She happens to be a citizen of Canada. Her husband was a citizen of Jamaica getting his pilot license in the United States. They fell in love, got married and spent the next two years trying to get him to Canada.
