I'd heard about this but I thought that they'd split up a long time ago. Nice article though.

I wonder if she was homesick. Maybe she missed her old life.

Or that maybe she loves her new life a bit much. Now, I know it's not concrete, but it was mentioned that she had entered the party life of Las Vegas. I guess she's enjoying the life she wouldn't have been able to have back in Bahrain, but living in Las Vegas might have been the breaking point. It isn't called "Sin City" for nothing...

Perhaps she's a bit of a rebel. Marrying a non-Muslim American was a pretty rebellious thing to do. Las Vegas is certainly an outlet for such a person.
It is sad, though, to see their marriage break up. Especially when you consider the risks she took. Considering the countless talk shows the couple appeared on after their marriage, one would've thought that they'd be married forever!

Going out and partying every night is hardly missing her old life.

I guess the tv movie was a little premature!
They should've waited until the divorce.

Hey, the marine should have known that there was no way they could ever be happy together. They not only come from two extremely different cultures, but also lifestyles. P. Meriam grew up in the wealth, having everything done for her and not having to worry about paying the bills. Not so with the Marine. After you get accustomed to a certain lifestyle, it's very hard to give it up.

Difficult, but not impossible. Amazing things happen to people in the name of love. However, I don't think hers was lasting enough to adapt to her new environment and move on from there.

I think he married her for some fame. If such a thing happened in another arab country concerning a sheikha/princess, the family would send someone out to kill him and bring her back, and then she would be locked up in her house or maybe even killed.He did not think of what would happen to her or to him ?I bet he knew it wouldnt last, it would be really difficult for her to adapt to his lifestyle and no one supporting her..She should of had some sense before thining of running away with him.She is lucky to be back in bahrain and her parents have forgived her..

Recent news about the couple. They look happy in the picture, I guess it was taken several years ago.

Well I'm glad her parents forgave her for leaving, and that she is ok. It isn't just the marine's fault...It's hers too. She should have known herself that the man wouldn't be able to provide her with the lifestyle that she was accustomed to back home. I hate that things didn't work out for the two of them, but the relationship was doomed from the start if you ask me.

According to the article, it looks like Meriam Al-Khalifa is still living in Las Vegas. Why hasn't she returned to Bahrain? Or is she afraid to go home? I thought her parents forgave her.

Actually, I don't think her parents forgave her. I would think they're still pretty darn angry over her behavior. Do disrespect meant, but from an outsider's point of view, Islamic royal families don't seem to be forgiving and loving.

And the divorce has not been granted yet. She merely filed for divorce. It has to go through the courts first then be finalized by a judge.

Post The Princess and the Marine

I hope I've put this in the right place.

On Lifetime TV (in the USA- don't know if other countries get Lifetime) tonight at 9pm they are showing the tv movie "The Princess and the Marine". It has Mark-Paul Gosselaar & Marisol Nichols in it.....it dates from 2001...just thought I'd share. :)
