It has been medically proven that to marry within your same family with the same genes can lead to heath problems for the children would you not agree.

I just thought it was relevant to some of the earlier posts and could
explain the reason to some members of the Maks looking further afield
so to speak for partners thats all.

kinda wondered the same thing, since sheikh mo's daughters, other than sheikha hessa, are all married outside the family, but i don't think that will apply to his sons, they most likely will marry within the maktoums, at least for their first and official wife

i believe this topic IS relevant to "marriage customs of the ruling family" because it is their CUSTOM to MARRY first cousins and i agree with you amboo with what you said before. it is an unhealthy practice that al maktoums or other local dubai families dont plan on stopping anytime soon.

Only one of shk Mohammed's daughters is married out of the family and that is shka sheikha. Latifa's husband is a cousin(not first cousin but second cousin), Shk mo's mom was al Nahyan so Manal is related to shk Mansour and as you mentioned previously, shka Hessa is married to a first cousin. So actually it is common for the girls to marry within the family as well as the boys.

If you think of Sheikh Mo as a blue print so to speak, his offical wife
is his cousin Sheikha Hind but not necessarily his first wife as Maitha
was born earlier than Hessa in 1980 so we can only speculate as to
how things will pan out for his sons time will tell.

didn't sheikh mo have two wives before sheikha hind, maitha's mom and manal's mom
cuz... religiously speaking he had to have married both those women in order to have kids, otherwise he'd be committing adultery...a very BIG no...no...
so does that mean sheikha hind was really #3?

Sheikh Mohammed married them before Sheikha Hind but the official wife is her because she is his cousin (AL Maktoum)

Well, i was told some time ago on this forum there isn't anything like an un-offical wife in Islam, a wife is a wife. So that would mean, the only way that Hind stands out is that she is a cousin and that she is publicly known. (although we don't know if Mo married more cousins and Haya is also public knowledge)
But i'm also curious about the other wives. It must be more then four given the number of children Mo has. He can be divorced several times ofcourse but still it seems much

As you said a wife is a wife, there is no official wife in Islam.
Hind is publicly known since she is a ocusin and a local.
The other wives arent really known in Dubai especially Sheikha Manals.
Sheikh Mohammed can have 4 wives at a time. We dont know who he is still married to besides Hind, Haya and Sheikha Maithas mother.

Sorry Dazzling but do you say that Mo is still married to Sheikha Maithas mother and not to the mother of Manal? How do you know?

I had no idea he was still married to shiekha maitha's mom?
*by the way how to pronounce sheikha maitha's name? is it like May-tha or
Ma-e-tha? and is it sheikha hessa or hussa? these names confuse me?

Yes he is, its just one of those things you know when you know people in the circle. Mant people in Dubai as well know that they are still married. She keeps a really low profile, does not attened any parties nor does she mix with the family for some reason.
For a very known fact, Sheikh Mohammed had left Sheikha Manals mother when Sheikha Manal was born. Sheikha Manal was brought up by her aunt Sheikha Hussa (Sheikh Mohammeds sister).
