Short story, I've had difficulty at the UK border in the past. Turned away as they suspected I was coming for work. After about a year, I decided to visit Ireland and they let me through on a visitor visa (US passport). A few months later, I came back through Ireland with the purpose of going to the UK. Ireland didn't like this and turned me away. So I have a refusal of entry in both Ireland and the UK.
Again, about a year passed and this time I went through Heathrow with no issues, again on my passport as a visitor. I was in the UK for about a few months and returned home since then but in that time I was there I met someone and he's asked me to marry him.
I don't want there to be any problem being together with him with my immigration history. Will I be able to live in the UK when we get married or will our only option be him coming to live with me in the US?
