How to Find a Wife in the Dominican Republic

Ready to settle down and meet the Dominican woman of your dreams?

The Dominican Republic is a nation on the island of Hispaniola, part of the Greater Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean region.

The Dominican Republic is a tropical paradise with tons of beaches, amazing nightlife and of course beautiful women.

Women from the Dominican Republic attract lots of attention with their unique mix of African, European and Latin blood. Most Dominican women are brown skinned, slender, dark hair, dark eyes and a petite yet curvy body.

You’ll find some of the sexiest women on the planet in the DR and it’s one big reason why this country attracts men from all over the planet.

Dominican women are not only physically beautiful, but come from a rich Latin culture that expects women to be excellent wives, caring mothers, great cooks and extremely supportive of their husband.

In this article, you will learn step by step how to find a good wife in the DR even if you have never visited the country before.

Step 1 – Apply or Renew Your Passport

Before you start chatting with Dominican women and booking a plane ticket, you need to get your legal documents in order.

The DR requires all visitors to carry a valid passport to enter the country. If you don’t have a passport, then read this article to learn how to apply for a passport.

Step 2 – Get Your Finances in Order

A trip to the Dominican Republic costs money so you’ll need to get your finances in order and save money before you look for a wife.

You’ll need at least $50 to $100 per day to cover your expenses in the DR. This includes your accommodations, food, drinks, and nightlife budget.

Step 3 – Use Online Dating & Bride MatchMaking Sites

The official language in the DR is Spanish so it will be difficult to fly down there and meet women without knowing Spanish.

That is why online dating is the perfect tool to helping you find honest, potential wives without wasting time or money.

There are several good quality sites that you can try:

  • Rose Brides – Search from over 200 marriage minded Dominican women from all over the DR. For $25 per month, you can purchase a premium account to send and receive unlimited messages.
  • Dominican Cupid – The world’s leading Dominican online dating site with over 400,000 members. For $30 per month, you can send unlimited messages to the ladies.

Step 4 – Give the Relationship Some Time

It’s easy to marry the first Dominican lady you fall in love with, but you want to give the relationship some time. This gives you a chance to get to know her as well as look for red flags.

You’ll want to look for personality traits such as:

  • Honesty
  • Intriguity
  • Caring Attitude
  • Supportive
  • Etc

Realize that you’ll have to deal with a language barrier because Dominican women speak Spanish. Taking your time will give you a chance to learn basic Spanish, feel her out and decide if she’s the right one for you.

Step 5 – Relocate to the DR or Marry in the United States

Once you’ve found your dream woman, then you’ll need to decide where you want to live with her.

Many expats relocate to the DR and settle down with their wife in a foreign country because it’s cheaper and they really enjoy the country.

On the other hand, you may decide to live in your home country and bring your wife with you. Each option has different pros & cons so you’ll have to sit down and decide with your wife what works best for both of you.

Step 6 – Apply for a Marriage License in the Dominican Republic (If you decide to relocate)

If you decide to relocate, then apply for a marriage license in the Dominican Republic.

All you have to do is contact the US Embassy (if you’re an American citizen) in Santo Domingo and provide the following documents:

  • Valid Passport
  • Proof of Residence
  • Latest Visa Stamps
  • Birth Certificate
  • $20 Processing Fee

You can find all the details on the US Embassy in the Dominican Republic website.

That’s it. Your marriage certificate will be processed in a few days and you can start enjoying your time with your Dominican wife.

  1. I wish that I can marry a Dominican woman. But, my heart is now with an Ukrainian woman. I can build a stronger connection with her than I do with a Dominican woman.

    I still would like to return to D.R., go to another city besides Santiago, and see half-nude and gorgeous dark-skinned ladies (at a beach) though.
