I'm an F1 student visa. I was arrested in 2012 for a misdemeanor (soliciting a prostitute) when I was completing my MA. This incident, which I still regret it very much to this moment, has been dropped by the court after I did 40 hours of community services in 2013. Note, after that incident, I returned back to my country for a vacation and returned back to the U.S. in Washington airport. The US Customs at that time transferred me to a secluded big hall. And another officer, after waiting two hours, asked me about this incident. And I answered him truthfully. He allowed me to check in the US border. This was after I finished my community services and before the case was dropped.
When I applied for another F1 visa for my PhD studies I was refused (under 214b section) at first, but after a long battle with embassy consulate officer I finally convinced them and I got approved.
My concern is I got married and my wife has no idea about this incident and I'm afraid that an officer might ask me the same question in front of her about this incident cause I love my wife so much and I don't want to lose her.
Do you think I'm going to be asked this question if I come to the US? And if yes, can anyone suggest something so I can protect my marriage?
