if SO is in India, has a good job and is ambitious career wise, then the H4ead situation is going to cause immense frustration for the SO, considering the noise around it and the current decades long wait for green cards for Indians (assuming law doesn't change)

Problems will only be compounded if you live in an area where there aren't too many Indians for the SO to make friends initially... Indians will prefer to have Indian friends while they assimilate into the US system. I'm sure it's the same for other nationalities as well

SO with no abroad exposure and h4 nightmare coupled with loneliness will cause her to ask you to move back. Set right expectations before you talk. I am glad to be in same spot and broke off mine before wedding actually happened.

If you and your SO have similar socio-economic, family, friends (circles might be different but similar) backgrounds, honestly it doesn’t make much of a difference. When i interact with my friends in India their mentality is quite broad and similar. Just because i live here, i am not significantly different from them in my thoughts, choices etc. the situation might be different for you, but dont worry... we all took some time to adjust. Your future spouse will too

Are you male or female?

@OP, I’m in the same situation. Will potentially get married from someone in India but I live in Canada now.
