My wife is a German citizen who has resided in the UK -some

Resolved Question:

My wife is a German citizen who has resided in the UK for forty-some years, first as the wife of a British barrister, and subsequently as his widow, until our marriage of a few year ago. Residing in the UK ,she is understood to be exercising treaty rights as an EEA national; and the Home Office has recognized my status as the non EEA national, noting that I may reside here only during the time that my wife maintains "Treaty Status". My question is: What is Treaty Status, how do you acquire it, and how do you lose it once acquired?.
Note: I started to pose this question a few minutes ago, but the realized the web site had not recognized me as a subscriber, as I had not logged in.

Your wife is a permanent resident in the UK having lived here for longer than 5 years.
As long as she does not leave the UK for more than 2 years, she will continue to be a permanent residence and therefore you have the right to reside in the UK with her as her spouse.
All the best

Thanks for your response to my earlier question, to which I'd like to add another. Namely, with citizenship in one country (Germany); permanent residence status in a second (the U.K.), would acquiring permanent residence status in another (US) interfere with her ongoing permanent residence status in the UK, if we maintained a home/residence in the UK, and the US, with substantial physical presence in each?

I am afraid you cannot be permanent resident in 2 countries at the same time.
All the best, ***** ***** feedback
