Is there any reason you would renounce your American Citizenship? I cannot think of any. I do not think I ever would.

  • With Tina, it probably has to do with paying income taxes/saving money. She's lived there for many years. Most likely a prerequisite for attaining citizenship. I'm sure it has to do with money in one way or another.

  • I thought people could have dual citizenships . If so, I don't think I'd give up my citizenship here to be anywhere else.

  • If I had been living somewhere else as long as Tina had than yes I would give up US citizenship cause I probably would not return to this country to live but only as a visitor so I really would not need the citizenship here.

  • Research has shown that Canada is the best place to raise a family... If I could... I would look into it.

  • Well, she's been living there (and in France) with her German partner since the 80s so I suppose it's only natural to take the next step ...

  • if i was in her shoes, living overseas anyway, sure why not. i dont think id announce it as "renouncing" my American citizenship, but rather try to put a positive spin on it.

    but me, in the life i live, no. it would have to be something major and even then id still be American, just not a citizen of the country that used to be America.
