3 years have gone by, and I still don't understand the type of relationship Haya and Mo have with each other. On one hand Haya seems so independant, always on missions alone, (besides the ascot) whats with her daughter? How does she fit into the scheme of things? They do generally seem comfortable with each other, and Haya seems a lovely person. I think that besides being affectionate or in love or whatever, there is another motive over here on the marriage, which I don't think is only money. I also don't think that the right way to open Dubai to the west is to flaunt a polygamous marriage. There are some things we will never know...

the West dosen't mind, the only reason they accept Mohammed is his money. Polygamous marriage or not, uncountable children or not, i believe i do not need to elaborate on Mo investment in the UK, it is immense.

so how many wives does sheikh mo really have?
we kno that he's married to sheikha hind, princess haya, and sheikha maitha's mom
is he also married to sheikha christina's mom? (that would make 4 wives, cuz he still seems to hang out wit her in the pix)
n how bout sheikha dilara's mom (which the legitimacy of her relationship to me still seems questionable)

I'd like to mention my astonishment of the Muslim sheikha to have the name "Christina".
IMHO, it sounds like some kind of a joke or an impostor. No evidence of the existence of any sheikha Christina in any of on-line peerage source also.
The whole story reminds me this one.

Her mother is Greek so I would assume that she's Orthadox. That would make sense giving her daughter a Christian name. Maybe he's not married or never was married to her mother. We don't know. She is very beautiful. All we can do is speculate. We will NEVER know exactly what Shk Mo has been up to for all these years. He certainly a man of mystery regarding women.

Also, if the law states you can only have four wives, maybe Shk Mo is divorced from two of them or maybe even three of them. Who knows, maybe he can even take yet another one??? Wouldn't that be a hoot?

Adultery is strictly prohibited in Islam , he must have been married to chritiana's mom that is if christiana was really his daughter . and a muslim man can't marry more than four women , and shiekh mohammed is officially married to 2 women , hind and haya .

I've noticed that there are a lot of misunderstandings or simply ignorance regarding Islam in this thread and other threads , if you are not a muslim then simply don't write things you are not sure of . thank you .

kuwait, do you know sheikh mohammed personally? There are other "statements" about his wives here too. Please read the marriage customs thread, post #188.

We are an open forum and we´ll write all the things that we want it to (respecting the RULES ), and when that happen and we get wrong at cultural aspects and stuff we´ll expect that a NICE person help us to understand. Just how it´s been happening since at least I join the forum. Thank you

Adultery is prohibited BUT unfortunately some muslim men don't respect this at all and I think that you know this very well !

Actually the "nice" way to handle foreign culture and traditions is to ask for clarification and information first and then make comments from a more enlightened place. Open forum does not mean the same as "write whatever comes to mind".

How do you mean? Sh Mo has married or been married more often then once. That is clear. According to reliable sources he is married at this moment to at least three: Hind, Haya and the mother of Maitha. Because of the new daughters and mothers appear in the media, questions are raised again about how many wives he actually had or has, how many times he is married or divorced etc. Everyone knows islam only allows four wives and Mo seems to have had more then that. Ofcourse Mo could divorce them and mary other ones but still...
I wonder what offends you most: our questions or the fact that Sh Mohammad has had so many wives

I certainly agree that this is an open forum , nevertheless no one including myself should write random things or "all the things we want to" because its certainly not a healthy way of conversation , and by that I mean everyone will get confused eventually . btw I wasn't being rude or "not nice" I was just trying to make things clear , and that is to help all the members in this forum , I'm certainly a nice person and Im very open to clarify some things for you , that is before you post it , just send a private message and I'll help you get things straight, that way we all benefit and share valuable information thank you

let me break it down to you : the type of relationship haya an Mo share is an interest relationship . see shiekh Mohammad is interested in Haya's family name , she's a hashimite ( a full arab ) and shiekh mohammad's family has a persian origin or what we call ( bloosh ) Almaktoums are not tribal like most of the gulf ruling families , Alsaud , Alsabah , Alkhalifah are all onizah ( the tribe of onizah ) a very famous arabic tribe . so , shiekh mohammad married Haya for her family name .
Why haya married mohammad : lets be honest here , its the money ! the jordanian royal family is not as half rich as Almaktoums , even though she's a king's daughter and a king's sister . they sure are affectionate to each other , but thats not the main reason . its a win - win situation . very simple , no?

You are very well informed Kuwait, BUT i think there is more then money in the world also for Royals like Haya and Mo. Perhaps Haya was looking for a father figure, someone to hold on, someone to make her feel special and enable her to make a difference and pursue a carreer. And i don't think Sh Mo would have married any Hashemite, but choose Haya since she is a western-oriented princess and he knew he could count on her when it comes to playing the western media.
Still, i wonder why she made life so difficult for herself. IMO she could have married someone with less money and horses and with more LOVE and compassion. Thank you

Since the beginning of time people have married for practical reasons. Just look at all the royal arranged marriages. It makes lots of sense and the divorce rate appears to be less than the "you are the big love of my life" marriage. If both parties are happy with the arrangement then mission accomplished. Many women raise their children on their own even if in a traditional western marriage. I am sure Haya can do the job well without the Shiekh around all the time.

The divorce rates are low, because the man has most of the rights and the woman can be a number in a list of other wives. If that arrangement suits the buyers, so to speak, have at it. But don't fool yourself, these marriages are not only practical they are male dominated. The idea that Muslim men don't commit adultery is ridiculous. They even enter into "Temporary marriages". So, call it what you will, it should be less than thrilling for most women. Yes, Mo may have picked Haya, because she is westernized and still willing to play the "take a number wife role", but think of it, either you do or your don't.

Not a healthy way was either to suggest that people who doesn´t fully understand muslim culture do not have to raised questions about it. I also say that we can say wherever we want it to as long we respect the others members of this forums and we always do that because, we instead of judge we actually want to know how this culture works. And as long ive been vissiting the site never ive notice this kind misunderstood.

I appreciate the offer of clear our minds but I really do not see the problem in doing it in the treads, then when other people have a similar question y been clear already, such as Muslim men are allowed to married to 4 women. Take care

Back to topic.

Does anybody knows where does Christina´s mother live now?

We can only speculate on how many wives Sheikh Mohammed has/had and how many other children he has.
It doesnt mean that he was pictured with Christinas mother that he is still married to her. I have never heard of her nor her daughter.

Personally I think its usless to assume how many wives and children he has because that we will not really know. We can speculate as much as we want.

I'm very new to this issue, as a relatively new resident of Dubai, and I've only become aware of the Dubai royals as individuals recently, so forgive any ignorance - I actually overlapped with Princess Haya at Oxford - only knew her by sight and reputation, though a friend of mine taught her - but only made the connection with Dubai since being here. I am inclined to like what little I know of Sheikh Mohammed, and I can see what is in the match for him. PH is young, pretty, dynamic etc - and I gather it's not uncommon for UAE men who marry more than once to choose a relative and UAE national of their own generation first time around, and a much more Westernised younger wife, possibly foreign, subsequently. I can also see the appeal in having someone he can travel with, as I gather his senior wife doesn't appear in public.

But I don't really see the appeal for her in a much older workaholic with at least one wife in the picture already - she seemed very much a Western, modern figure in Oxford, and I have difficulty in believing this very traditional set up would have represented an ideal for her - and surely, with her background and looks, she could have had anyone she liked. I hadn't known until I came on this forum that there were also other wives. How much time can she and Sheikh Mo possibly have together, given his other responsibilities? Presumably they don't actually live under the same roof?
