How to marry a foreigner

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. I want to marry a foreignerIn 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.
