Marriage ceremony in Ukraine: some important questions

Hello Krystyna,

I have a question, I’ve been to Ukraine many times and met a lady, “not on a dating site”! She was actually a friend of a lady that knew a lady I was dating from a dating site. I met here two years ago. I was there before the war started and then I returned this last June and July to get her out of Lugansk and take her to Kharkiv. We spent many weeks together and went to Antalya Avsallar Turkey. Long story short we have love and engaged. She shall come to the USA, but she wants ceremony in Ukraine for her family. I said that it cannot be legal documented marriage in Ukraine form what I read because of being two different citizenships.

My questions:

What am I getting into? She wants small family ceremony like only ten people? I not know customs and cost of this in Ukraine. What would the cost be for this ceremony of like ten family she wants, I not think it would be in church. But she did say something about religious man for ceremony.

She is a wonderful lady, I treat her like a princess and she treats me way better then American ladies ever did. Ukraine ladies are so natural beautiful and values that are wonderful. Sad the country is in bad shape.

Thanks, Dan

Hello Dan,

Thank you very much for your message and I am happy to read that you found a wonderful woman from Ukraine for marriage and family life. I’ll give my best to answer your questions.

You are not right saying that wedding in Ukraine is not legal documented marriage. It would be much more complicated to proove that your marriage taken place in Ukraine is legal in the USA. I know many intercultural couples who get married in Ukraine because of low costs and family there, so marriages in Ukraine and Russia are considered to be legal.

After marriage you will need put an apostille on your marriage certificate, then translate the certificate into English, then again to put an apostille on the translated copy of your marriage certificate. You get married in the USA, it would be much more easier to get a residence card for your wife.

The wedding costs in Ukraine much less than in the USA. Your wife wants to have a wedding ceremony in her home town, not Kiev, right? If she wants to have only 10 persons at the wedding, it would be costs about $1000-1500 (dollar is now really expensive in Ukraine). I can understand why your woman wants to have the wedding in Ukraine – family is very important to Ukrainian women.

Family values are the key to understanding Ukraine culture. Family is extremely important and many old traditions are still very much a part of family life today. While families have gotten smaller in recent years, it is still common for parents and grandparents to all take active parenting roles with children. It is very important for Ukrainian families to stay close. They are known for their good hospitality and love to have family that live far away visit often.

I hope I could help you!
