it's off topic, but i'm going to Egypt two weeks, so i wish you all here already MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR! cheers!
Multiple wives in the UAE is a personal choice and certainly not a given. The two most revered individuals in UAE history took two different approaches. Sheikh Zayed had multiple wives while Sheikh Rashid had one wife.

I caution that people don't get confused when reading multiple wives. This could mean the same as in the West - multiple divorces and marriages.

Lastly, remember that at the higher levels in the Ruling and Royal families, marriages veer more towards being "fixed" and for political / family strength reasons. This is true even in Europe. All about the Empire!

Monchichi posted pics (1st thread)of the Maktoums at Eid prayers. I noticed that Rashid is next to Sh Mohammed. I know he is the oldest but sometimes it seems that Hamdan is next to Sheikh Mohammed. Do you suppose they fight over who gets to be next to him? My brother and I used to fight over the front seat in the car. That is sort of similar :-)

Not a "democracy" like your experience fighting for the front seat. They boys will follow their father's wishes.

True royal Friend. I dont think there is a lot of democracy in that family. I dont know why I find the relationship between the Maktoum brothers, epecially between Rashid and Hamdan so interesting. With them being so close in age, I can only imagine sibling rivalry exsists but I like to think they are close and trusting of each other. It seems that Hamdan wants so badly to be "good" in his dad's eyes(he writes poetry abt him for cying out loud!) where as Rashid doesnt seem to be as concerned(publicly, that is).

Does age matter in this case? Is it common for Mo's children to marry young? Sorry for my ignorance but I'm knew to this thread. Also do we know where they have studied and what?

Wedding is still along way round since they are still young. Nasser is officially engaged to sheikh Mohammeds daughter.

Its common getting engaged that young and married when the girl has finished her high school or can marry after university.

Do you mean sheikh Mohammed's sons or daughters

maryamii ALWAYS THE SAME THING DON'T BELIEVE THIS
S.RASHID WILL MARRY WITH S.LATIFA THIS IS NOT TRUE
Believe me! For 3 years always and always and always people say this anddd.. they didn't marry. I heard that he loves a Moroccan lady for 3 years.She is educated and beautiful.

and for Hamdan he will marry in Spring. I read it in a magazine.

dubai-girl First yes I heard.
Second and third no idea.
I %100 AM AGREE WITH YOU.S.Rashid is not engaged with his cousin.

IN TURKEY MEN NEVER AND NEVER HAS MULTIPLE OR FOURT WIFE.
WHY? Because this is RULE in Turkey men can't get married with multiple wives and also Turks don't like this.
