To Marry Any Lady In Saudi Arabia, You Must Agree With These 5 Conditions Or Forget The Marriage

Every Tom and Harry knows that when you fall in love with a woman, you'll do everything in your power to ensure that you marry her sooner or later.

According to Quora (a website focused on questions and answers), there are five things you should know before marrying a Saudi woman:

1. You must obtain the Saudi government's permission:

If you want to marry your Saudi queen according to the Kingdom's rules, she'll need a special exemption from the authorities to marry a non-Saudi. The process is lengthy and bureaucratic, but it is needed if you want your marriage to be legal in Saudi Arabia.

2. You must undergo a series of drug tests: According to Saudi Arabian law, foreign men who wish to marry Saudi women must undergo a premarital drug test for all drugs, narcotics, and alcoholic beverages. It goes without saying that testing positive for any of these drugs would result in the applicant's marriage permission being denied.

3. Divorce after marriage is never a good idea:

If you, as a foreigner, have a propensity to divorce with her, there is a strong possibility that the bride's family will be given custody of your children unless it can be shown that they are incompetent parents.

4. Do not consider it a crime if your child is kidnapped by your wife after you have married:

Since Saudi Arabia is no longer a signatory to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of Child Abduction, whether a Saudi father or mother (wife) kidnaps a child from their partner, there are no consequences inside Saudi borders since it is no longer considered an abduction.

5. You will no longer be able to sleep in the same room as your wife:

When you finally settle into marital bliss, most family features are divided based on sex. For men and women, some homes have different exits, living rooms, and quarters. So plan ahead of time to sleep/keep away from your wife.

6. Be prepared for a lot of interference in your marriage:

Saudi households are tribal, interconnected, and deeply concerned with one another's well-being. This not only provides the couple with a large guide group (numbering in the thousands! ), but also a lot of input and influence in their lives. As a result, expect some interference in your marriage.
