This question already has an answer here:
I am from Turkey and I am married to a Spanish woman. We live in Spain and I have Family Resident Card issued by the Spanish authorities. We are going to the UK for a 4-day trip. I applied for an EEA family permit but was told that it can take more than 4 weeks to be issued. Our trip is in 20 days.
My wife said that, if I don't receive before we leave, we can go to the airport, taking our marriage document with the official translation, and try to travel without the visa. She believes that I have the right to travel with her anywhere in the EU and they can't refuse me entry.
Is this accurate or is it a big risk? She claims that I could be stopped at the border, but they have to let me enter after questioning me.
