In my post marriage in Poland I tell you about how to get married in Poland. However in this post, you are reading, I talk about a problem in Poland, that is at least 1/4 of all the marriages in Poland to foreigners are for fake. This is fake news and needs to be fact checked. I would say statistically there is not variation from other countries.
It seems way too high for me. This is an estimate by a Polish newspaper. That being said it is annoying that I get so many people on this blog looking for fake marriages. I delete their requests.
Some claim it is for love and others are more honest and say it is for money. Others ask how they can get a Polish girl to fall in love with them so they can get citizenship for Europe. These spammers and marriage for citizenship bidders are annoying. I can understand that they do not like the economic situation they live in. I really do, but what they want is illegal and immoral and they are very insincere. Europe will be flooded with people from around the world because they know the law and there is an easy way to get into Europe. That is marrying a European.
I wonder why some Polish girls fall for it. I am an American married in Poland. I am really in love and my wedding was for love. However, people from around the world seek out Polish girls to marry so they can get an EU citizenship. The price on the market for a false wedding in Poland to a foreigner is about 5 to 10 thousand Euro. That is a foreigner guy pays a Polish girl. This is very wrong and the Polish government and police are getting wise to this.
How Polish girls get burned after their fake wedding
When there is one of these arrangements, a wedding for EU citizenship the funny thing is the guys more times than not, just take off. They never give the Polish girl the civil divorce they promised (they are all civil marriages) and they disappear. The Polish girl can now never get married again. Why? Because she is still legally married in Poland. And once you are married you are married all over the world. So this fake (for money or they get tricked into believing it is love) marriage to a foreigner ruins their lives.
