I don't think that the law penalizes ladies, but isn't there a limit to the number of apps a guy can file?
I also would be interested to know if other countries limit the guys.
Australia allows only one Fiance/Partner Visa in a 5 year period, so you better pick right :-(

I think one fiance/spouse visa every 5 years is a resonable limitation. I mean by the time you start the process, go through the process, complete it you only have to be married for a couple of years and the 5 year time frame is nearly up.

It is designed to weed out those relationships that are shams.

In any event, nothing stopping an Australian citizen inviting/guaranteeing a prospective spouse's stay under a tourist visa. I plan to do this shortly. Much more sensible than a potential spouse visa, we both get to know each other better, spend more time together, she gets to see what life is like here and I get to see how she fits in etc ...   :)

There are requirements however to seek a waiver when applying and to provide additional information for a 2nd or more K1 application.  This ONLY applies to the USC (US Citizen).

Which is going to last as long as it takes for the first guy to (a) get a waiver denied, and (b) challenge it in court.  Marriage is a fundamental right, and the harpies are going to lose this one.

The very best idea, but...... 

I wish you well in this mate, I really do, but getting a Tourist Visa for a single, young, childless female from the FSU through the Moscow Embassy is not an easy task. Most get refused.
It helps to have "hostage" left behind (child), or a business, but the Oz Embassy over there is HARD core :-(

No child but she does in part support a parent and is a self employed professional (not sure if that counts for or against). She has travelled to western Europe before on a Schengen visa and on a holiday to Japan and returned back home as required  :saint:  ;D

Hoping that me giving a very detailed letter of invite with clear and direct undertakings should paint a positive picture ...

Of course you are correct that marriage is a fundamental right and this arbitrary restriction should be struck down, but I wonder how many US District Court judges would do it.  And I could see certain Circuits upholding the decision.  And in any case, it would cost a helluva lot of money to challenge this, unless a good attorney handled it pro se.
