Does he have more than one wife? I remember reading he had more than one wife. But maybe that was someone else. I don't think Haya would marry a man with one or more wives. She seems independent.

I know. I'm thinking maybe Haya thinks of him as a father figure. How can she not he's 55. But since she lost her both of her parents very young, she said that she was a daddy's girl, plus I'm sure her father was busy beening king and his other children. I'm sure she loves Sheikh Mohammad, but just abit like a father.

I wonder what King Abdullah and Queen Rania think of all this. King Abdullah looks like he's trying to put on a brave face because he would rather her marry differently.

Even King Hussein divorced his wives or re-married after they died. I'm feeling for the first wife of this prince. Can you imagine knowing you are either being replaced or are having to "share" your husband? (shudder, shudder, shudder)

samitude, I agree about KA is just putting on a brave face. I would never want to share my husband. I wonder if his wife and kids like Haya? How old is his wife and is she going to take the title of crown princess or does his wife have that title? Is Haya now a HRH and HH?

Hello to all of you! :flower: Not exactly new on this site, but it's the first time I post a message.

And what a way to start! P.Haya really disappointed me...it's not the fact that the the man is much older than her, but he's already maried with children. I thought she was better than that! what is she now? a second, fourth wife?even if it is a political/financial marriage...In a way I have always admired the JRF, but I think they're going downhill...or maybe they weren't that good to start with! Time to take advice from Q.Noor about stepchildren!

p.s.: ok, so he's older...that really doesn't bother me...however...does anyone else here thinks he is beyond ugly? I know, it's what inside that counts, but still...

So was this a marriage ceremony or an engagement? (like the Petra website says)

Anyway, when I first saw the pictures I simply couldn't believe that she'd marry someone like that. He looks old and unattractive while Haya looks as young and pretty as ever. What a waste!
I simply cant imagine what she must have been thinking. Forget King Abdullah and the others, why didn't Prince Ali speak out against this marriage? What brother would want his sister to end up with a man like that, no matter how rich he is?
I cant help thinking the poor girl would've done a lot better had her parents been alive. And it certainly doesnt say much about Queen Noor. I dont care if she is the stepmother, she should've said something about the match, guided princess Haya perhaps. I dont think she'd let any of her own daughters make such a foolish match.
I honestly feel so very sorry for Haya. But I hope it works out and she'll be happy.

She is so pretty, and I thought she was also independant and now she marries an old guy!!!

How many wifes does he have and how many children???

It is a waist of such a pretty woman!!! I think maybe the family forced her!!!It is a shame and I always had good hopes for the "liberated" royal family bit they dissapoint me so much!!!!!

Unlike most of you I can see that Haya & Sheik Mohammed would have a lot in common. His Highness is very involved in horses, especially with thoroughbred racing. The Maktoum's Godolphin Racing & Darley Studs are the most successful in the world.
If I remember correctly Sheik Mohammed also competes in across country horse races (endurance).
The marriage will also ensure Jordan's safety in the Middle East. On the whole an advantageous marriage for all concerned.
