Q: If it kicks off.... take your kids and leave your partner behind?

What a decision to make. And being a follower of politics, it is something I have been thinking about.

 

Would I evacuate China, with my daughter, but leave my wife and family  behind?

 

Nope.

 

I wonder if the UK would allow my Chinese wife to evacuate to the UK. They have no Choice about me and our daughter... she has that special stamp in her passport. They cant deny our daughter access.

 

I could maybe do the passport waving stuff at the airport.... I am a Brit... this is my wife and daughter... get us out. My daughter is a Brit. It would probably work.

 

But no way could I take the whole family.

 

If it kicks off, who will you have to leave behind?

The real question is the logistics and cash flow considerations involved in fleeing during a period of mass public panic. Especially in China. It would make the Spring Festival travel period seem easy.

Doesn't your wife have a current U.K. tourist visa? Mine does (the new 2-year one) & when it expires we'll immediately get her a new one. Okay there could be issues staying long term but it's an intoal escape route.

Thats a hard one.
I guess it has a lot to do with the number of people and where you are.
A sea evacuation isn't really a option for me due to proximity to a likely hostile area .
And the airports are domestic or travel to areas that would be going from the pan to the fire.
Remember that book "the pied piper " set in ww2 in Holland and France ?
Might resemble my way out

You always have the family reunion option in extracting your trapped family members.

Take both, wife and child, mother and child. Hopefully you don´t have to go through these ordeal. Is it how it feels like already, like everything on the verge of the war? I mean, I don't want to sound like "dude, on what world do you live?". I know the threats, the TRUMPets of war, and the ongoing belligerent propaganda. Yet, is it so vivid the threat over there that you feel like soon to run away,  flee away from China? 

Let's hope for the best and that you can bring your whole family back to UK. Better, that you don't have to do so. 

 

BTW. What do Chinese people feel and think about these events?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
