You will lose your right as family member of eea national as your marriage has not lasted for three years.You cannot retain your right of residence.Your residence card will be invalid and HO can revoke it.

If you divorce you will have to inform HO as there is significant change in your circumstances, this is where they will make a decision.If you do not inform HO you will have problem in future in case you travel abroad and you are stopped at the airport to bring your wife to show you are still together.If I were you I will stay in my marriage and try to work things out.Every marriage has its ups and downs so stick to it unless yours is marriage of covenience which I do not think it is,keep going to resolve your marrige crisis.

I agree with troubled, if you are divorced then you have to inform HO and there is no way you can retain your rights of residence based on marriage as you don't qualify. You will have to make your marriage work, if however its too late for that then I am afraid you will need to inform the HO and wait to see what they tell you.

Its very difficult to say if its a sham marriage as things do go wrong when 2 people start living together, but when there is more stress on how to continue living in the UK other than how to save the marriage alarm bells do go off and the marriage is perceived differently. I would worry about saving the marriage rather than asking how can I stay in UK after the divorce

To be frank (and in my opinion), I do not see how a marriage of 1.5 years already headed for a divorce can be perceived as anything but suspicious. All efforts by one party being made to retain UK residence and apparently little or none towards preserving the r/ship and marriage...

If marriage is contracted for genuine reasons then a divorce will not be taken "lightly".
