    Lightbulb Marriage 10 month waiting period any exceptions?

    Hi, I am an American citizen and I am engaged to be married to a citizen of Dominican Republic. We plan to marry in July but I read that I have to wait 10 months after my divorce to remarry. I am an American citizen that was married and divorced in the United States. Is this true or are there any exceptions to this rule?

    May I ask what is the rush to get into another marriage?

    Did you know your future wife before you got divorced?

    The 10 month rule was overturned a few years ago now by the Constitutional Court, in April 2015. You can marry 30 seconds after your divorce.

    Any person that remarries less than 10 months after his divorce deserves the next one

    To be fair, they may have been separated for years before getting a divorce.

    ditto.
    I hope that you don't plan to live in the DR with her, cause you'll probably be double screwed.

    Good afternoon, and welcome to DR1. I highly suggest that you explore the site www.dominicanstotheusa.com . There is a moderator named D-Mo. He knows all of the ins and outs of Americans marrying Dominicans.. Good luck!

    Matilda is correct. This provision in the divorce statute was struck down as unconstitutional by ruling TC/0070/15 of the Constitutional Court, dated April 16, 2015.
