Just to update. From recollection.

This guy and his wife continued their relationship. She returned home to Ukraine where she very quickly amassed enough money to build herself a house on the Crimean coast. She was supposed to return to the US but had left it a long time before doing so. The airline refused to let her board because they thought her documents were invalidated by her delayed return.

As a result of the 'stress' the woman had a stroke which put her in hospital. Apparently her long-suffering husband is hopeful that she will regain use of both arms and legs. Currently one arm and leg are non-functional. Hubby checked the docs and has been told that she should have been OK to fly.

Given the current situation in Crimea travel is a little difficult. Hubby is still in the US and she still in Crimea.

What can one say except to note that this woman sure as shit has problems being with her husband and those damned airlines...
