Dubai Sheikhs

Can the Sheikhs of the Dubai Royal Family or any of the Royal Families in the Mid-East marry a Black woman?

Or Hispanic?
Domino, I think they can marry whom they want, as far as I am concerned only the official wife has to be Emirati, if I am wrong, someone please correct me.

From what I understand the sheikhs or Arab males from prominent families can more freely marry however their choices aren't entirely free of blockage. That being said the preference is:

1. Marry a cousin (can be a distant cousin as families are quite large)
2. Marry a woman from another noble family.
3. Marry within your own [religious] sect.
4. Marry a woman from a different sect.
5. Marry a foreigner
6. Die a bachelor.

But things get tricky after #4.

I apologize as this is a bit off topic:
As for black women, it depends on the individual and their preferences. So there's no easy way to answer that question, sorry. However, if you're interested, from my past research on a similar topic black women were mostly brought in as slaves and worked in a domestic or sex slave (or concubine) or a combination of the two. In conversation with my Khaleeji and Levantine friends Blacks are not always regarded highly and are frequently referred to as "abd" or "abeed" meaning slave in Arabic. (There's over 1,500 years worth of history concerning Blacks and Arabs of the Arabian Peninsula that's very interesting if you wish to know more please send me a line privately.)

Hi guys, since this forum is for the Ruling Family of Dubai, discussion of mass weddings and other topics have been moved to Members' Corner.

I think it's dangerous to keep marrying first cousins, genetically speaking. It's ok for 2 maybe 3 generations in a row but after that I think it can start to get dangerous. Hopefully they'll start to change this custom.

Actually while there is a taboo to marry ones relative, scientifically speaking there is no proof that inter family marriages cause birth defects so long as both people are healthy and there is no "bad genes" like some illness that passes on from generation to generation. As long as they are healthy those genes will be passes on and there is no danger to the offspring. Now that aside I cant believe hes marring his cousin. Weird.. I cant believe some people still do this. Its just strange to me.

That isn't totally correct. Scientifically inter-marriage between parallel cousins (as in Hamdans case) has a higher risk of consanguinity defects when children are produced. A relative example would be the Hapsburgs who married into every royal house in Europe and cousins kept marrying one another producing over the centuries defects and deformities. Even if genes are "healthy" to keep replicating the same DNA is damaging even if the results do not occur right away or changes manifest gradually.

What does it matter if they are in love for now? My guess is that Hamdan will be free as a bird after marriage and can still shop around. After all, his father is also a polygamist. And Hamdan's marriage of a cousin is another sign, that Hamdan wants to follow the example of his father in every way .
Also i don't like the fact that his bride is not visible. I always hear that Dubai women are encouraged to step out, develop themselves and play their role in society. Shouldn't that also apply to the women of the Maktoum family?!

Bettina i agree w/ u 200% on this one... Hamdan is said to be a great daddy's follower. But at the same time we don't know really how things work for them... IF hamdan wanted to marry someone who's not a royal , lets say a simple Jane whom he happens to really fall in love with would his parents ALLOW him to marry the one he truly loves??
The thing is that we don't know if he's marrying his cousin b/c:
A. He's obligated or
B. b/c he just wants to follow daddy's style of marriage.
C. He plans to have many wives
**What u guys think?? feel free to give ur opinions..

A, B, C and
D: Marrying a cousin guarantees no secrets or money are leaked out of the family. No matter how the marriage turns out, Hamdan's future wife will never run back home because she already is .

For european royalty it was also tradition for a long time to marry other royalty. This changed somewhere in the last century. Now they marry common partners.
In UAE traditions change as well. Most visible is the role of women. Traditionally UAE women were rarely seen outside the house, now they go to school, university and get a job.

So if things are changing in UAE, this might be the perfect time for Sh Hamdan to start a new tradition when it comes to his bride .

I agree with both of u!!! I am sure he will have more wives! And i think that i saw her picture in this site, so she is visiblle... and she is too young so i dont think that she has a certain role right now!

Oh I now Sheikh Hamdan could get married as many times as he wants, and maybe he would have a public wife just like his father. I sometimes think he already married someone but it is just my thinking.

Well that's one way to avoid adultery... or at least having it be called adultery
