Iris Jones, 81, said ‘I haven’t got time on my side’ as she said she had no idea when Mohamed Ahmed Ibriham, 36, would be able to join her in her Somerset home.
Ms Jones has made three visits to Egypt to spend time with him at huge personal cost, but cannot go again over conditions in the country.
She has urged him to get his law firm to speed the process up before it is too late.
The pensioner said: ‘I get days when I’m alright and other days when I’m just crying all the time.
‘I’m separated from someone I love, it’s so hard. I haven’t got time on my side, his lawyers know that.
‘I keep on at Mohamed to get his law firm to hurry up with the visa, I don’t know what the delay is, but it is complicated.’
The unlikely couple got together after meeting on Facebook on a group discussing and exploring atheism.
