I wonder what the advantages of this marriage were to Princess Haya, a very beautiful young woman, a King´s daughter and a King´s sister. Her husband is much older than her and not exactly handsome.
She is considered modern but has accepted to be a secondary wife in a custom that seems to be becoming old fashioned. Money? Surely as the daughter of the King of Jordan she had a very good inheritance!
What is left? It must be love.

I wonder myself, but I still think it is Money.

Jordan does not have money like other Arab royal family. They live of taxes. And it is not as much as the ones European royal families get.

And even with all that said, with all the children that Sh. Mohammed has, the money and will first go to hind's kids (I think) with Sh. Hamdan being the one in charge. So I do not still see her or her child getting much.

I think this relationship is based on the benefit for both sides plus they have horses as a common interest. Sheikh Mohammed provides a platform for Haya's various activities that she could not pursue without his influence and money which is good for Haya. Haya is the late King Hussain's daughter and half sister of King Abdullah of Jordan, who has his own benefit relationship with Sheikh Mohammed, which is good for Mo. Plus Haya is popular in the western world due to her showjumping activities and gives Mo and Dubai the modern western touch which is good for both and for Dubai in the end. It could have been the 1001 night fairytale of the 21st century if there wasn't that small but revealing detail that Sheikh Mohammed remained married to his longstanding official wife, Sheika Hind. Being married to a husband who won't give up polygamy is definitely contradicting the "love match" theory that Haya desperately tries to implant into the western media.

That was one advantage I forgot, horses. Sheik Mohammed certainly has some beautiful horses.

I've removed a few posts speculating about a new wife for Sheikh Mohammed. Please don't repeat gossip as until such news is confirmed it is merely hearsay.

thanks.

Princess Haj

I think that Sheikh Mo loves her.. people do not understand just how competitive people are in.. when you are in sports..

She is or at least was in competitive sports with her horses.

Rumors fly over that... people create rumors for whatever reason.

I think that he loves her.. as he seems happy with her in photographs.

However, he does seem to have a lot of love for women in general.

And that is the message that I think that she is promoting, that no one is being oppressed over there, like the USA claims that they are.

the moroccan(i kno) woman is sheikh majid and sheikha maitha mother; she is not a public wife, she remains outside the media like sheikha hind, they exist but no one has seen them

There is nothing to be confused about. Apart from Princess Haya, there are no pictures of Sheikh Mohammed's wives.

This is an interesting thread.......

I wonder if Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid intended for Princess Haya Bint El-Hussain to be a public figure or was it just a consequence of marrying someone who was already a public figure by virture of being a Jordanian Princess? I would have imagined that if would have been pretty hard to get Haya to drop out of public view once they were married (esp. since was close to 30 when they married)

If Mohammed wanted Sheikha Hind to be a public wife he could have encouraged her to open her face and have her photographed. He did not want her to be public. He married her at the age of 17, when he was 30 years old.
At that age difference, he was a husband, like a brother and a father to her. let's not forget no matter how beautiful Sheikha Hind is, after giving birth to 13 children it must have affected her body.
Along the way he meet Haya, a averagely beautiful, very sophiscated lady, with influeunce in internationallly circles, with passion for horses. And she is not the kind of woman Majid mother was or Marwan mother was, she is definitely not the kind of woman you can put in a villa and make her produce children without publicly marrying her.
So he went against the feelings of Dubai people, his family and married her. Mohammed definitely loves Haya. As to whther haya loves me or not i don't know but she is definitely happy with him.

The most important connection Haya brings along is her relation to King Abdullah II of Jordan. Haya was very public before meeting Sheikh Mohammed so no option to be with her in a "non-public" way anyway.

But she is infleuntial internationally as well. The same way Sheikha Maitha is representing her country in Takwando is the same way Haya represented Jordan in horse racing or whatever

Sheik mohammed's wives

I just recently joined this forum and after reading some of these posts, I have come to the realization that most of Sheik Mo's sons are by different women.

My goodness, how many wives does he have?!? I know his last wife is the sister of the King of Jordan.

He has two known wives. Most of his sons are with his senior with Sheikha Hind. There is a detailed list on the first post of Sheikh Mohammed's Children 7: April 2008-Hope that helps.


There is a couple of pictures of Sheikh Mo and Hamdan.

Does Haya still live in a villa or does she live in a Palace?
