I am often asked by UK immigration if I'm planning on staying in the country longer than 3 months, if I am planning on living there, etc. My husband is British, so I guess it's a fair question. My favorite exchange:

"What is the reason for your visit?"

"I'm visiting family."

"What family do you have here?"

"My in-laws live in Dorking."

"Where is your husband?"

"He's here already, I'm meeting him in the arrivals hall."

"Are you planning on staying in the UK permanently?"


"Why not?"

"It's too expensive. I can't afford to live here."

"Neither can I. I wish I could emigrate."

THUNK of entry stamp and I'm on my way...
