Throw in a comment to them that Britain can no longer be viewed as their country, and the British no longer their countrypeople, and, well, good luck on that.
    What does an EU wife look like? Who can we compare her with?

    My wife was born in what is now part of the EU.

    Well mine is British, born outside of Blackpool and has a British passport. Still, she's an EU wife.

    Will you LEAVE her boggart? I was told Leave means Leave.
    All truth passes through three stages: First it is ridiculed, second it is violently opposed and third it is accepted as being self-evident

    You asked what an EU wife looks like. So I identified one. How that gets extrapolated to 'all EU wives are Slovenian/Yugoslavian' is beyond me. Isn't asking what a EU wife looks like a bit like asking what a European looks like ? The ones that end up marrying Brits won't have unique distinguishing features from the rest of the population. And lest there be further leaps of logic, I'm not suggesting all EU spouses look like her either - some of those spouses are men.
