LOL! You never know, he might see the humour in it and reply. Anyway, you don't really need to ask that question because we already know.
...that he is gay...i know it's so obvious

Do you think he would answer "How many illegitimate children do you have?"

How old is Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed? In his late 30s?

He was born in 1958. His father Sheikh Saeed bin (I don't know) died a few months before he was born.

Sheikh Saeed bin Maktoum Al-Maktoum

SM site about Sheikh Saeed, his grand-father

According to the article, Sheikh Saeed had another son called Sheikh Khalifa. That would make a total of three sons: Rashid, Khalifa, and Ahmed.

La La, yes Shk Ahmed is 25yrs older than you & yet you still find him a hottie. And on this board everyone is dogging PHaya for marrying a man many years her senior. Can we all now agree that older men can be attractive?

FYI: My husband is 20yrs older than me.

Age is just a number; You go girl :flower:

Is yours a love marriage? (Just curious)

I don&#39;t have a problem with age at all either way: husband OR wife being older. I think most of the attack on Princess Haya was because she became a second wife.

Silver charm: And I quote La la (since I suck when doing a proper quote here): "you go girl".

He&#39;s married to &#39;white&#39; woman.

And, yes, my marriage is a &#39;love&#39; marriage. However statistically speaking arranged marriages have a lower incidence of divorce. The couples who enter an arranged relationship know their will be compromises and difficulties.

He&#39;s 21 years older than I am and I still find him incredibly attractive. If he (or any man) were single and I loved him, age wouldn&#39;t matter to me.

Silver Charm, are you an Arab woman living in the Middle East? I&#39;m just curious why your marriage was arranged.

Yes, he is&#33; There is something about his eversmiling face and youthful eyes. He also looks very well-built even if it is hard to tell through his dishdasha.

Sorry if I confused y&#39;all. My marriage is not arranged. As a matter of fact as I was preparing to walk down the aisle my mom leaned to me and said &#39;You know, you don&#39;t have to marry him&#39;.

I did, anyways.

La la: oh, he&#39;s very well built. I saw him once in London. He was wearing pants and a shirt. He&#39;s average height (I always thought he was taller) but all in all he is quite "dashing", as the Britons say. Oh yeah, his voice is also quite s-e-x-y.

I have many Jewish friends who have arranged marriages, and they are all very happy. "Arranged" doesn&#39;t mean the prospective spouses can&#39;t say no; it&#39;s more that the families agree there would be a good match if the prospective spouses get along.

Silver Charm, I simply misunderstood your previous posts. :flower:

On another note, I wonder if he knows women find him so attractive.

Sheikh Ahmed? Sure he does. You should see how they drool over him.

Do you think the sheikhas disapprove of him marrying a European lady? My first thought was that if he hasn&#39;t taken a sheikha for a wife then he must really love his European wife. But if he is a womanizer, then he might as well have taken a sheikha for a wife too.

I guess they would disprove. They even have problems with their sheikhs marrying non-sheikhas...so a European would most probably never be accepted.

How true is it that he has a European wife anyway? Could she just be a girl-friend as opposed to wife?

Emiratis marrying non-Emiratis is GREATLY looked down upon. But the only person to tell any of the Maktoums what to do is Baba Zayed and it&#39;s my personal opinion he&#39;s given up on them (the Maktoums). It&#39;s well known in the Emirates that the rulers of Abu Dhabi don&#39;t think much of the Dubai aristocracy.
