thanks Schwalker:smile:... Shaikh Hamdan also got engaged on this month. Does it mean that he is also getting married this month?

Im not sure Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammad got engaged at all. Theres just a rumour..:biggrin:

But if true, no..it might take year and years before a marriage is in place, if ever.

sheikh hamdan got engaged and its official
he got engaged to his cousin shaikha shaikha bint saeed

Harold 12-29-2008 12:23 PM

I freely admit my ignorance about things such as marriage customs in the UAE. So, without intending any offense, would this have been an arranged marriage? Would Hamdan and Shaikha have had any say in it?

Sahar_eden 12-29-2008 12:49 PM

Hi everyone! Harold - yes they would ultimately have the final word on whether it would go ahead or not, but the marriage was most likely arranged by parents. Of course though, they'd spend time together (chaperoned probably) and decide if they liked each other or not.

It is true about Hamdan's engagement btw....

Fien 12-29-2008 12:49 PM

Very good question Fien. I guess it is because the Maktoums make no official announcements whatsoever so all we can do is predict/read the cards/gossip and hope something of it comes true. From a PR perspective it would be handy if the Dubai royals would become more open, but they don't want it. :nonono:

maryamii 12-30-2008 06:27 AM

its not gossip,,its true
they are engaged and all the dubaians kno abt it,,

Warren 12-30-2008 06:43 AM

The Al Maktoums may not make offcial announcements about family matters but the official newsagency WAM does. Both WAM and the Gulf News carried the reports of the wedding luncheon for Sheikha Hessa's fianc hosted by Sheikh Mohammed the other day. Neither agency has any report of Crown Prince Hamdan's engagement.

The only verifiable source we have for an engagement is an announcement on Sheikh Hamdan's website, fazza3, which has been posted at post 9. However, on planet-arabia.net a poster states it appeared on the message board part of fazza3 and could have been made by anyone. The other posts on planet-arabia relating to an engagement largely quote or repeat what has been posted here in The Royal Forums.

There is nothing else to be found. :question:

Fien 12-30-2008 10:57 AM

Well i think it's strange to say it's sure if there is no official news. I mean at least one of the newspapers and stuff can have it.
I heard from the girl 2 months ago he got engaged and i was like hmmm should i believe it is it true i didn't asked anyone here cause i tought if it's official it will be post here or on a website.. and now that people say it's true i was like how the girl knew it 2 months ago and u people know it now but no where we can find it officialy, i understand they don't have to give us story's about their private live but he is a prince... and i agree with Warren they did gave the official announcement about Sheikh Mohammed's daugther why not about the Crown prince..but maybe i'm seeing it in a wrong way..

Fatisse taleb 12-30-2008 06:06 PM

New picture of Sheikha Sheikha on Sheikh Hamdan's website when she was 10 years. I like it she looks cute...Congratulations to her she's a lucky girl.:wub::wub:

Sheikha was indeed a lovely child. I would like to see a picture of how she looks nowadays, but I think we still have to wait a bit for it :smile:

miss b 12-30-2008 06:55 PM

oh my, she is a pretty girl, but she looks exactly like hamdan and his sisters. :ermm: i guess that is what happens when you marry your first cousin.

Fatisse taleb 12-30-2008 07:46 PM

yes she looks exactly like Hamdan's sisters...the same family AL MAKTOUM.

miss b 12-30-2008 08:04 PM

i realize that she is a maktoum, but i also realize that marrying your FIRST cousin can lead to birth defects. could he not have found a second or third cousin? it has been proven that marrying as close as first cousins can lead to problems with your children. i think marrying your mother's sister's child is just a little weird. in the background, i can hear the tune from the movie, "deliverance" being played. just my opinion.

In the UAE, a test is required before cousins can marry, Its a requirement. It might look strange to you, but at the end of the day its their culture.

brucantuosi 12-31-2008 03:54 PM

Sheikh Mohammed and Sheikha Hind are first cousins and I see zero defects in Sheikh Hamdan

jcbcode99 12-31-2008 04:15 PM

He's marrying his first cousin? While I don't see the health benefits of intermarriage, I respect their customs.
He is a handsome man and she is a lovely woman. They will (hopefully) have beautiful and healthy children together.

Turkish Delight 12-31-2008 06:22 PM

Of course,marriage with cousins is their culture,I respect that but,I also have to say that it's very unhealty.
