    It was her home to begin with and i moved in to her home. They were her kids, I, at the time i left, invited her to leave with me and we'd find a place without the kids, but she said she had to help her kids, I answered that I didn't.

    Yes, you're wrong.  This thread is about regretting or not regretting moving to DR.  None of the last bunch of posts even vaguely resemble that.

He had a job, but refused to help with any household expenses. I was the rich gringo all that was on my shoulders. Those are my experiences with poor Dominicans.

    Every guy I know who married a woman with kids from a previous marriage has problems. I thought it was just me for a time.
    After a few years of the kids I asked my Dominican wife one day if there was a time limit on the children living with us? "No". So you mean they could be 40 and still be in the same house with us? "If they want to". My wife is such a wonderful person they would be crazy to leave. The good part is she has them paying the electric bill, water bill, cable bill and from time to time goes shopping on their credit cards. Now its my turn to leave every light on in the house. Who does not love a little payback?

    LOL. My stepson went off to university as soon as he finished university and has been on his own since. He is now 27 as of today and rarely asks for anything and would never live at home under the controlling mother or grandmother. Never had an ounce of problems with him. Good kid , establishing himself well. He lived with me from age 10 and got along well with both my sons.Just to make this about the DR I dont regret moving here but I doubt my stepson will ever leave Canada

    I suspect its because some of your posters have the attention span of a trump, and are easily distracted by shiny objects.

    some a you guys made some good points regarding the helpfullness of people

    i will def agree that in the city people are not as helpful as in towns, rural, or villages outside of the city in any place of the world. however, DR is a very poor country and ppl are still helpful despite the fact that they had to endure their life with struggle and no comfort, if it was any rich man or well off person they will flick you off if u ask for help with the simplest things that have nothing to do with money or shelter at all.

    When i was driving by villas agricolas my car stopped due to overheating in ave juan pablo duarte in the afternoon with a ton a traffic, i have to admit that just getting out a the car it was a pain in the ass since they were pretty much blocking my way out of the car, BUT the people (pedestrians) in the area walking helped us push the car to a local mechanic/garage which by the luck of god was close by, and the mechanic fixed my car and we picked it up the next day so, it was a lot of help, i never recieved any of that in the states
