Is this normal? If not, what does it mean? My (first and only) spouse was pretty surprised to get the call. We have a very happy marriage, so I have no worries on that front, but I’m now concerned that there’s something else “unusual” going on with my investigation since I didn’t think this was a usual part of the process.
This is several months after my subject interview.
Spouse is an umpteenth generation American, born in the USA, and has no foreign relatives.
We’ve been married about 6 years. First and only marriage for both of us.
Spouse did live overseas (not in a “questionable” country, though) for a couple of years before we met, but that was more than 10 years ago.
I listed one foreign contact on my eQIP because we send this person a yearly holiday card, but I have only met twice personally, most recently 5 years ago or so. I specified in the comments that it was a friend (former co-worker) of my wife’s, who occasionally emails this person.
