Tired of the phrases “I’m getting married to a rich foreigner, I’m very happy”, “I’m going abroad to my beloved” and other stories about women who have found their happiness in another country? Also no, no, and the thought “I want to marry a foreigner, would I know how to do it” slip through? Then you should figure out what pitfalls awith a foreigner brings.
How to marry a foreigner?
To begin with, it is worth deciding who we mean when we say “I want to marry a foreigner.” Residents of Ukraine hardly dream of marrying a Russian or Kazakh foreigner. It turns out that suitors from the post-Soviet space are not of interest to us. Who then is needed? Most ladies are interested in husbands from European countries, with the exception of Turkey. The latter country, of course, is known for its holiday romances, but marriage is rare.
Most often, our compatriots are looking for husbands among Germans, British, French and Italians. You can search for a husband yourself via the Internet or entrust the search to marriage agencies. In any case, you need to know about some features of the national character. For example, the Germans value order and punctuality and want the same from their chosen one.
English they can’t stand women who constantly talk about their problems — this is a bad form. So you have to be smart, be able to listen and talk only about good things.
Italians very similar in temperament men, but they are almost all “sissy”. If the mother says something to the Italian, he will surely fulfill her wish.
French people usually versed in art, politics, history. You will need the ability to carry on a conversation. But France is known for free morals in sexual relations, so a Frenchman may well flirt with another lady in front of his chosen one and will not tolerate jealousy.
But whoever you choose, there is an important point that should not be forgotten — this is the marriage contract. Do not save on lawyers, carefully read and discuss all the points. Otherwise, there is a risk of losing a child, funds, etc. during a divorce.
Many women, coming abroad, discover new horizons for themselves, start making a career. And now, after a while, the wife is already more successful than her husband, who took her as the guardian of the hearth, and not a business woman. After all, our women are valued in the West precisely because of their lesser emancipation. If such a story happens to you, then you should be ready or save the family, trying not to infringe on the feelings of a foreign husband, or leave — men do not like to feel their humble position.
Before deciding to marry, check the information about your future spouse. Many sites post “black lists” of suitors. These are those foreigners who make money on marriage scams or their acquaintances with girls from abroad do not end with marriage registration. It is also better to visit the future groom for a few weeks so that you can sort out the situation, understand what awaits you, how much your knowledge of the language and culture of the chosen country corresponds to reality.
What documents are needed to marry a foreigner?
If you choose a marriage agency to search for a spouse, then the question of how to collect the necessary documents to marry a foreigner will not really bother you — specialists will help you collect and process all the necessary documents. If you do everything yourself, then remember that not completing many documents and collecting them takes a lot of time. In addition, each country has its own requirements for the list and paperwork.
You will definitely need a passport (some countries only want to see a foreign one), a certificate stating that you are not married and a birth certificate. Copies of documents require notarization and apostille. In addition, the documents need to be translated into the native language of the country you are going to. Some documents are translated in the groom’s home country.
After collecting all the certificates, copies are sent to the groom to obtain permission to formalize the marriage. When permission is received, it is time to obtain a visa.
Be sure to check all the details about the list of documents and their execution at the embassy of the country where you are going or at the registry office of your fiancé’s homeland. Since the requirements change, and translations, apostille, notary certification cost money.
