My wife is a Spanish citizen with a Spanish passport. I am a citizen of the U.S. but am now in her family book as the spouse of a Spaniard. The family book is newly acquired, and we are about to enter the country for the first time with it. My question is: If we enter together, is the book sufficient to get me through immigration at the airport, or will there still be a need to apply for a visa of some kind?
Thank you in advance for any shared knowledge.

As a US citizen you don't need a visa to enter Spain, regardless of your marital status to a Spanish citizen - or anyone else for that matter - if you are coming for a visit of 90 days or less.

The 90 day limit is the question. Our tickets are one way, and we plan to stay until something calls us home. I realize I should have stated this initially, but the question is can I stay indefinitely as long as my wife is here also.
