The 48-year-old politician met his wife Erika, from Brazil, in 2002. The pair met at a London party while Dominic was working in the Foreign Office and Erika was a marketing student.
Dominic actually committed a faux pas when introducing himself to his future wife, mistaking her for Argentine.
In an interview with The Times in 2019, Erika explained: "He actually made a big mistake."
"It was a week after Brazil had knocked England out of the World Cup and he asked if I was from Argentina. If you are from Brazil, that is bad."
According to The Sun, Erika said of their first meeting: "It was an instant attraction. My best friend married his best friend as well, which is really nice."
When did Dominic and Erika Raab marry?
The couple have kept the details of their wedding private, but it is known that Dominic proposed to Erika on Christmas Eve in 2004 - just two years after they met.
