I am travelling to China for the first time and wonder if anyone has visa application advice.

I'm married, we've been together for 27 years, but got married in Massachusetts only when it became available.

I'm inclined to put down that I'm single, and not list my husband as major family member, but that is not true. I do not like being dishonest, and I also fear if much research is done my marriage will be easily discovered.

I recently got a 5 year visa from Saudia Arabia and in the application I put down married, since they did not ask for spousal name or family members. I also had to pick a religion as I'm not religious.

has anyone had experience with this? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
