    Somone one told me today that if you get married in the Dominican then you would have to go back in order to get divorced?

    Do you guys know if this is true. I know, I know...probably shoudn't be thinking that way already, hahaha...but would like to know just in case....lol

      I think there is like a checklist of requirements in order to obtain a divorce decree in the state in which you reside. Each state has different marital laws. I do randomly remember that Marc Anthony got married to his ex-wife in DR and he had to go back there to get a divorce. Hmmmm, now I'm not so sure of the answer. LOL. Sorry I'm no help right now.

          As I understand it, you don't have to go back to DR to get a divorce. You can get a divorce in Canada - so long as the marriage was valid in DR, according to DR law. (otherwise Canada won't recognize the marriage)

              Okay my co-worker who is Dominican said that you can get married there and get a divorce in Canada and the U.S. You don't need to go to DR to get the divorce. She said people just do that b/c you can get divorced within the same day. They don't make you wait for a long period of time, you just go in and get divorced all within a couple of hours.
