Marrying a Dominican

Recommended Posts

I met my fiance when we were working together at a resort in Punta Cana. I worked in the kids club and he was a photographer. How did you meet yours?

And Rubia Loca is what random Dominicans call me when I won't take a ride with them...they think it's crazy to enjoy walking in the sun! :P

lol how did you come to work at a resort? I went to the Majestic for my best friends wedding. She asked me to be MOH but I totally didn't want to go (but I didn't tell her that) because I wanted to spend the money on a trip to Europe, plus I hate the sun and hot weather. Turned out to be a great week though as that's where I met my husband :)

 

When are you getting married rubialoca? Has he been able to get a visa to visit Canada? Have you looked into sponsoring him to come to Canada? That's my next step. I have most of the documents ready, just have to gather the details.

I was working for Club Med at the time and they basically give us 6 month contracts in their various resorts around the world, and I happened to be placed in Punta Cana. Lucky for me cuz I met my man there!

We applied for a visitor visa back in July in hopes that he could come here for Christmas holidays and we were denied. These are not handed out very often to Dominicans, but we thought we'd try anyway so he could see Canada before moving here. Alas, I'll be spending Christmas back in the DR!

I'll be sponsoring him to come here once we're married. I'm working on putting together the application, as it's quite a long process and requires a lot of documentation to support the relationship (I'm sure you're aware of this if you're doing it too!). We're getting married in March so hopefully by then the application will be ready to send off!

That is so amazing!! I have met some of my favorite people in the world in the DR, probably explains why I have gone there 6 times on vaca!! Haha!

 

I think its awful how much work has to go in to "prove" your relationship... I know there are (obviously) some people who take advantage of the system and thats why those measures ae in place, but it just SOUNDS ridiculous for two people to have to prove they love eachother and that the relationship is legit. No one of the same country has to do that! Even though I think celebrities should have to do this, there is too much random marriage and subsequent divorce in Hollywood if you ask me... hahaha

I am marrying a first generation Dominican-American. His parents are from Santo Domingo and moved to Washington Heights to have a family. He was born and raised here but his parents moved back to DR.

 

One time he did try to convince me that he needed a green card. It was quite a funny conversation.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
