It's one thing to take her back, try her and throw the bitch in jail to rot.
It's another to go all limp wristed and bleeding heart and insist she should be given "state support"....
Owing Allegiance to Another Country
You cannot lose citizenship simply by living abroad for a long time. You can, however, be stripped of citizenship if the government feels that you have abandoned your U.S. residence. This happens if you demonstrate your voluntary allegiance to another country. For example, you might become a naturalized citizen of another country with the intent of renouncing U.S. citizenship. You could also lose your citizenship by swearing an oath of allegiance to another country, such as if you are working for the government of a foreign nation or voluntarily serving in the military of a foreign country if that country is at war with the United States.
This does not mean you cannot be a citizen of the United States and also a citizen of another nation; you can. This is known as dual citizenship. Neither the federal government nor state governments keep records of how many US citizens hold dual citizenship, so there is no way to know how many Americans currently hold citizenship in multiple nations.
Marrying a foreign national or otherwise becoming a dual citizen is not the same as swearing allegiance to another country. An American citizen should be concerned about losing his U.S. citizenship via allegiance to another nation only if he runs for government office in the other country, serves in its military or intentionally becomes a citizen of the new nation without going through the proper channel to preserve his U.S. citizenship.
Article III, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution defines treason as "levying war" against the United States or giving "aid and comfort" to the enemies of the United States. A person must confess in court to the crime or be convicted based on the testimony of two eyewitnesses. Treason includes making war or helping a foreign power make war against the United States and also includes trying to overthrow the U.S. government or Constitution. Committing treason is a sure-fire way to lose your citizenship and serve time in prison.
