Well, I think so. Iman is the King & Queen’s first children to get married.

BTW, King Abdullah II used the same legislation to restrict the movements of Prince Hamzah. I am not sure if the articles related to the personal lives and finances of members of the royal family are applicable or not
So if the King had given his permission his daughter to marry outside of her faith, a simple civil wedding would be acceptable? Or it would be a huge scandal?

There is already more information about the groom's family.
Quote:
Jameel's name is actually Jimmy Alexander Thermiotis Hernandez. He is of Greek descent on his father's side, but was born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1994.
Jameel is known as Jimmy, as is his grandfather, who was called Jimmy Thermiotis, a Venezuelan financier who passed away in 2018 and was well known among Venezuela's elites.
Jameel Alexander is the product of the marriage between Alejandro Thermiotis and Corina Hernández, and has two brothers, Alexia and Alejandro. He belongs to a wealthy Venezuelan family, since the grandfather of Imán's fiancé managed the Dior franchise in Venezuela.
Jameel, who turns 28 this year and has studied Business Administration at Florida International University. He currently works in finance, as he is a managing partner of venture capital in New York, where he resides.

As in many countries where personal status laws are formulated in accordance with Islamic religious law, such a marriage would not be legally valid in Jordan.

https://www.state.gov/wp-content/upl...DOM-REPORT.pdf
"According to the PSL [Personal Status Law], in accordance with its interpretation of sharia, marriages between a Muslim woman and a non-Muslim man are not permitted; the man must convert to Islam for the marriage to be considered legal."

So, she should have converted to a different religion to be able to marry him had he not been willing to conceded to her family's wish/requirement to formally convert to Islam. Or is that also not allowed for Muslim women in Jordan?

The report seems to be saying that her hypothetical conversion would not be recognized for the purposes of civil status (including marriage), so the marriage would remain legally invalid.

Quote:
The constitution does not address the right to convert to another faith, nor are there penalties under civil law for doing so. The constitution and the law, however, allow sharia courts to determine civil status affairs for Muslims; these courts do not recognize converts from Islam to other religions. Under sharia, converts from Islam and their children are still considered Muslims and are subject to sharia but are regarded as apostates. Neither the penal code nor the criminal code specifies a penalty for apostasy. Sharia courts, however, have jurisdiction over marriage, divorce, and inheritance, and individuals declared to be apostates may have their marriages annulled or be disinherited, except in the case of a will that states otherwise. Any member of society may file an apostasy complaint against such individuals before the Sharia Public Prosecution. The Sharia Public Prosecution consults with the Council of Church Leaders (CCL), a government advisory body comprising the heads of the country’s 11 officially recognized Christian denominations, before converting a Christian to Islam to make sure the conversion is based on religious conviction and not for purposes of marriage and/or divorce.

I think that even if she had the right under law to convert to another religion, it should not be very well considered in Jordan for a royal princess and daughter of the ruling King

I dont think any of them would marry outside the Islamic faith. Article 6 of the Royal family law states that members of the royal family are subject to the provisions of Islamic Sharia and other laws in force in Jordan, except for what is stipulated to the contrary in this law.

She certainly would not be allowed to marry him if he did not convert or make the effort to do so. One of her aunts married Ned Donovan, an Englishman and he converted to Islam and I think he changed his name so.

Exactly! The JRFs are familiar with such marriages. Iman’s Aunt Princess Aisha was married to Mr. Edward Banayoti who also converted to Islam & took the name “Ashraf”. So did Princess Badiya bint Al Hassan’s husband Mr. Edward Blair who took the name “Khaled”.
