Eye on Wales : Divided families

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03ft8rn

'When a British person marries someone who isn't from an EU country, they have to be earning above a certain amount before their partner is allowed to join them in the UK.

'Last year the UK Government substantially increased that minimum income requirement to at least £18,600 a year.

'But it’s estimated that less than half the Welsh working population earns as much as that.

'BBC Wales’s “Eye on Wales” programme follows three couples caught out by the new rules.'
