Dominican Republic recognizes 1st non-Catholic religious wedding
Catholic World News - August 29, 2013
For the first time, the Dominican Republic has recognized the validity of a religious wedding ceremony that was not conducted in a Catholic church.
Under a new law allowing for non-Catholic religious marriages, a couple was joined in a Jehovah’s Witness ceremony. Until recently, although the country had recognized civil marriages, religious ceremonies were recognized only if they took place in Catholic churches.
