Woman who was denied U.K. visa over unaffectionate marriage returning to Canada

 

A Canadian woman who was once denied a British visa on the grounds that her 45-year marriage lacked affection is asking the government to reconsider in light of her husband’s health.

Maria Summers’s husband, David, was recently diagnosed with cancer and underwent surgery days before she was slated to return home to Canada.

The British government has said that Maria Summers needs to leave the country by Aug. 23 after twice denying her application for permanent residency.

Summers’s first application was rejected after the government questioned whether her marriage to a British citizen was genuine and affectionate.

The British First-Tier Tribunal overturned that rejection, only to decline her application again on financial grounds.

Summers has requested an extension from the U.K. Border Agency and even argued her case in a letter to the Queen, but is currently slated to fly back to Canada on Aug. 23.
