My girlfriend is British, but I am an EU citizen. I would love to become British & naturalise and move to the UK with her at some point in my life, but I'm not sure whether this is possible. If I marry her abroad, is there any way to apply for citizenship and become British abroad?
Also: I have lived in the Uk for 5 years, but then moved away. Will this count for anything or are these years lost now (with regards to my application)?
