Default Spouse visa not living in USA

Good morning!
i hope someone can help. Myself and my fiancé are looking at moving to the USA after our marriage in August. What I wondered was I am a US citizen by birth and hold a US and UK passport. I do not live in the states, and I do not want to move there until my partner can come with me. Will this be a problem going forward when applying for the petition as I am not in the USA?
We also hoped someone could help us with looking at the safest cities in the US
Thank you!

No problem at all.......once married you petition your husband from whatever country you currently live in.

You will need to find a way to meet the financial requirements of the I-864 affidavit of support, since you won't have a US income.

You will need a USA address for the green card to get mailed to. That can be a friend or relative's address.

Other than that, it shouldn't be a problem.

You do have to prove intent to reestablish domicile in the USA. This could be you taking a visit to find a place to live, interviewing for jobs, etc.
