Dominican Republic

The common law wife laws in the Dominican Republic call for a woman to get half of what the man has after living together six months. As far as half of what the man has this includes all his possessions in the Dominican Republic itself including vehicles, cash, furniture, etc. Things that the man owns in another country are off limits to the common law wife law. As anywhere, some of the women will know this law well and try to take advantage of it if the relationship does not work out. There are men that do not know of the law and have to learn the hard way of course. Some men think that their lady does not know about the law because she seems out of tune to official laws of the country because she is either naive or uneducated. This can be a big mistake as they all have friends and someone will tell them or they will find out somehow when breakup time comes and friends and family find out about it.
