@shirleyleehl: when they rejected your PR application, did the letter tell you to re-apply after two years or did they just tell you it was rejected. If your husband is a PR and doesn't want to take up citizenship then things might look quite bleak and you might not get PR or an LTSVP going forward. There was a lot of discussion in the media recently that PRC PRs do not integrate into the society very well and thus you might be facing problems as ICA has now done a 180 degree turn and has tightened up massively on PRCs applying for PR.
Not a problem I'm sure, it's a public forum and we are not experts, we are just sharing a little knowledge and sometimes things can be overlooked. I must admit when i post it's all on hearsay in most cases and only a person with no common sense would trust a forum that's really my opinon of forums, even if it was full of experts. it must be confirmed. Then you have the legality of cutoms laws, what is and is not legal, until cases are taken to the extreme they are maybe always illegal in every country.
But the facts are on the treaties that have been signed, between Countries, be it Asean or Europe, things are still different in all Countries concerened. So this is a complication that the citizens don't need, that satisfy political agendas for some Country's like the UK and also Denmark, the union serves a purpose, but not in the interest of democracy, but protectionism
