Oregon "first lady" green-card marriage scam enabled by quick unilateral no-fault divorce

Just sayin'. We get a lot of these green-card marriages here in the DC area, and they would hardly be conceiveable without laws that make people assume - - often mistakenly - - that divorce will be easy and will automatically be granted when either spouse asks for it. These marriages cannot qualify for annulments unless one spouse can show that they were truly innocent, believed in the marriage, and were defrauded by the foreign suitor. Divorces in such marriages might be easy or might be ugly, hard and expensive: one never knows at the beginning, since it takes two to have an amicable divorce.
