So, basically this means that I, as a Brit, can marry my non-EU citizen fiance, move to somewhere in the EU with my wife (and some savings) work a minimum wage job for three months and then move to the UK and we circumvent the stoopid rule about minimum wage/savings by utilising EU regulations which trump UK ones?

in a nut shell, yes.

Still, 3 months in France is quite a heavy price to pay. I'd go to Spain.

That's crazy. Stupid thing is my wife would rather live in Kabul than the UK, does that then also negate the life tests etc? As usual all the wrong people will no doubt take advantage of these rules.

There is a flaw in the 'Jill and John' example shown in that article - it's not as easy as that to bring a non-EEA person ('John') into France to begin with - all EU/EEA countries are open to movement within the region, but quite obstructive to movement in from out............ I think there is more to this than is explained there.

In the real example, why do we allow a woman who has been here on a 'student visa' to get married legally here?

IS it easier for non EEA nationals to get visas to other EEA countries than UK? Or are they not required to be in this other EEA country and only the person wishing to take them to UK must reside and work outside UK in an EEA country for 3 months? Confused.

Not to any great concern though since like others none of my wives would ever wish to live there, me neither come to that.

I think you beat me to it, and perhaps more succinctly.

Regarding marriage on a student visa, I'm not sure but I think marriage is classified as a basic human right at some level so it might not be possible to deny it based on visa status.

Were you possibly referring to me? Not sure if it would help as it may be very difficult to find employment for three months in a foreign country? Also I don't think the monetary requirements are too onerous. Furthermore, my wife would prefer that we retire overseas.
