Is there any possibility of Hamdan and Rashid already having a wife that isn't public knowledge? I think Shk Mohammed had already a wife before Hind but she was first to be publically acknowledge.

Sheikha Latifah is 19 years old. A normal age to be engaged in the UAE and in the royal families.

i dont know for sure, but i think that it is an arranged marriage, but im positive that he must be a great man cuz i dont think that your father would set you up with a man less than perfect for his daugther, and they are alowed to know each other before the wedding and she can end the engagement if she changes her mind

What I do not know, it is how usually an (royal & muslim) engaged couple behaves, i mean, can hold hands or maybe to go out to give a walk... all the romantics stuff that we love, but of course decent

Most parents wouldn't willingly marry their daughters to somebody they believed was inferior but it's a fact of life that many people do not reveal their true character until they are married.

Is it mandatory for members of the Al Maktoum family to have more than 1 wife?

I dont think so, i read here that someone ( I'm sorry am bad with names and in this family is like a nigthmare for my short memory lol) just have one wife. I guess that its a personal choice.

As for Sheikh Mohammed marrying a second time to Princess Hayah, there are a couple of theories within the local Emirati's minds. One could be that he wants to attach himself anyway to the Prophet Muhammad's blood-line; through Hayah since she is supposedly descended from him (peace and blessings be upon him). Umm al-Imaarate Sheikha Hind is accepted by the locals since she is a local herself, although she is not public. So perhaps Sheikh Mohammad wanted a public figure in a wife, so he married Princess Hayah.

I think that Sheikh Mo married for love.. they both share a love of horses.

Sheikh Mo strikes me as a passionate man...

Is it very common in the Al Maktoum family to marry cousins? And if so, why?

Part of the reason for the intermarriages relates to the fact that these are Ruling Families. Most of the families are large with various and extended branches.
To preserve a degree of family unity, every so often a cousin will marry a cousin so as to tie or unite the branches together again in common purpose. As the Ruling Familes are tribal in origin this part of the tribal culture remains relevant and useful.
The same principle applies when a member of one Ruling Family marries a member of another Ruling Family.

Yes... even my 1st-born brother-in-law married a cousin from the same branch... It is to keep ties etc.

Sorry for my ignorance, but do royal brides in Dubai wear white wedding dresses as European brides? Or do they have traditional wedding dresses?
