The Philadelphia Inquirer: My wife is ‘stateless.’ I always worry she will be deported or detained.

She grew up in Delco, but was not born in the U.S., and is "stateless," meaning no country will give her citizenship. We've been married for around 10 years, and I fear she could still be taken away.

In many ways, my wife and I are the classic Philly couple. I grew up in Wilmington, Delaware. My wife grew up in Delco. Both of us always wanted to live in Philadelphia and we’ve made the city our home.

We met on OK Cupid back in 2008, and the rest is history.

I collect vinyl records. I’m a tech guy. My wife, Karina, was involved in starting the farmer’s market in Old City, now known as the Farmers Market at Christ Church. We’re about to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We like to go to Jaxx Steaks Taproom, sip a Peroni, and watch the Eagles games. I get a provolone with onions. My wife gets the chicken cutlet sandwich with broccoli rabe and provolone. Our favorite Italian restaurant is L’Angolo on Porter Street.

Like I said, we’re quintessentially Philly.
