Gay couple may be forced apart by US immigration laws
Swansea woman and her American partner may have to give up their home
and life in the States, as US immigration laws fail to take gay
partnerships into account.
Ryan, a helicopter pilot, has been living with her partner Wendy Daw,
an acupuncturist, in San Francisco. But she will be forced to return to
the UK unless there is a change in immigration laws for gay couples.
US law defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman, and
excludes same-sex couples from having the same rights. Though the
debate is raging in Washington, the couple fear that any change to the
law will come to late if it comes at all.
