Long story short, my parents are from a very traditional Hindu background and would be very hurt if they learned that I married someone from outside our caste, let alone an atheist foreigner. I thus decided to never tell them. They’re very old in their seventies and I just don’t want to them discover this fact and lose their tranquility in the last few years of their life. For the sake of this question, please assume this decision as given. I’m still in touch with my parents and we talk once or twice every month.
The problem is, they may want to visit the US. I wouldn’t have to invite them; they have the financial means to apply for a visitor’s visa and come here by themselves. In this case, they would have to provide information about their son which includes my marital status. They will be putting it as “single”, and I’m guessing the immigration officer will most likely catch the inconsistency and reject their application.
Do I need to worry about this? If yes, will the officer let them know exactly why it was rejected, thus revealing my true marital status to them?
