I Was Ghosted By My Husband After His Visa Approval: “He Fooled Everyone”

He left towards sunset – without her.

An Australian woman claims her American ex-husband ghosted her a day after she was granted an Australian partner visa.

Isabelle Glastonbury, 31, said she met the unidentified Texan in Dallas in 2015 and got engaged a year later, moving inland in 2018.

They cemented their union in a dream wedding in Palm Beach to the tune of $50,000, which her family reportedly covered.

But their honeymoon was cut short – he reportedly slipped out in January 2021 after receiving his visa, which Glastonbury parents reportedly paid $10,000 to obtain.

‘I came home and literally 90% of his stuff was gone,’ Glastonbury said Daily Mail Australia in an article published Friday.

“I had this sinking feeling.”

She remembers trying to log into her immigration accounts, but she was blocked, her credit cards ran out and her number was blocked.

The despondent bride said none of her calls or messages were received.

“He ghosted everyone – all of our mutual friends, the best man in our marriage and his own family, no one knew where he was,” she said.

On reflection, she realized that he had become “aloof and started disappearing at night”, despite his offer to move to Queensland and start a family together.

“I felt like I was married to a total stranger,” she explained, adding, “I don’t know what his plan was, none of it made sense.”

“He was my best friend, my turn or die,” she continued.

“He fooled everyone, including me.”

She insists the Department of Immigration and Border Protection has not helped her cause.

“So many people reported it to immigration and nothing happened,” she claimed.

Glastonbury said she hasn’t spoken with her ex since meeting in February 2021, when he allegedly said he “must be single”.

“I think we got married, he got over it and was too chicken to say anything to my face, but he just wanted to stay in Australia,” she reflected.

She said a friend recently informed her that her ex had remarried “almost a year from the day we officially divorced.”

Glastonbury, meanwhile, has since moved on with her high school sweetheart, Max, with whom she welcomed her 3-month-old son, Mason.

Now that she’s “in the right place,” she’s sharing her story to warn others who have turned a blind eye to their spouse’s suspicious behavior.

“Don’t be blind because I’m sure I could have seen the signs before it happened and I just ignored it, you never really know who you’re sleeping next to,” she said. advised.
