Plenty of Dominican women live in the United States, primarily in New York, northern New Jersey, southern Connecticut and parts of Massachusetts. Dominicans have been coming to the US consistently since the early 1970's. The flow has slowed but the ones here represent a good amount and they are comfortable and have many of their own barrios. The Dominican woman of the USA and the native Dominican woman are two different creatures for sure. Most Americanized Dominican ladies have taken on the traits of American women and that is not a good thing as far as many men are concerned. They are less womanly and challenge their men on issues where native Dominican women do not.
The Dominican Republic is the most popular tourist destination in the Caribbean. This surprises some people but the fact is that is had been the top destination there for the last 25 years. It is a big island and has many different resort areas throughout it. Cuba is the only island in the Caribbean larger than the Dominican Republic.
Very few Dominicans have ever been exposed to the phrase 'Mail Order Brides' and probably would think that it had something to do with a new bride getting her gifts from people that ordered them online and sent by mail. Trying to translate it would not make any sense as it is not a part of their culture in a sense of the term itself not to mention there are no real postal services here makes the term Dominican Mail Order Brides even harder to figure out.
Though many ladies here have a child by the time they are 25, many of them have never been married. To get married just because one is pregnant is not practiced here very much. The elite class may do this at a moderate rate but the lower class people do not look at marriage as a requirement in this situation. Due to this, many ladies do not become Dominican brides until they have gotten the youth out of their systems and become ready to settle down. If they have a child or children, their family usually plays a big role in caring for them so they often have lots of time to do the things that young people do. Kids will definitely slow most people down in the end and make them mature faster. If you do not mind a woman with child or children then you will have a tamed lady who has intentions of moving on and getting her own family unit together.
The question of whether you want to have a family with her should definitely be asked and most of them will want to have children with you. If you do not want to have any kids with your future Dominican bride it is better if you look for one that is over the age of 30. This is not mandatory of course but children are a big part of what she identifies herself with and to have your children is normal to her and creates the bond which is the glue for the family, so get this straight before you invest much time when meeting any woman online or otherwise.
