If you intend on sponsoring a Conjugal Partner, you need to be able to first demonstrate the genuineness of the relationship and two, your failed attempts to be together. For example, if you are unable to travel to a country because your life would be in danger and your partner is unable to get status in Canada, than this may be a suitable claim for conjugal partnership.
