According to the New York Times, more than 3.2 million noncitizens are married to U.S. citizens, more than double the number in 1980.  This table breaks down the numbers between men and women and the native countries of the noncitizen spouses.  Noncitizen spouses from Mexico, the Caribbean,Central America and Africa are somewhat more likely to be men, and noncitizen spouses from Europe, Canada and Asia are more likely to be women, with the numbers from other regions more closely balanced.  A story by Nina Bernstein, “A Fatal Ending for a Family Forced Apart by Immigration Law,” reports the experience of one couple whose marriage ended with the husband’s suicide in December after three years of enforced separation.
