Hi there!

I just found this post searching in Internet information about mixed couples especially between Emiratis and Europeans as I am currently in this situation.
I am a girl from Europe and my boyfriend is from UAE.

I would like to get in touch with girls in my same situation, so please feel free to send me a private message.

Thank you

Just be careful you are his only girlfriend. I have a few friends from UAE and they are all very proud of the fact they have more than one girlfriend

Hellooooooo ladies,

I have been in Dubai since February 2012, and finding it hard to meet new people (NICE people).
I got so happy reading your posts and realizing there are actually people like me!
My boyfriend is here, both of us are Lebanese, but he has 2 jobs (day and night) and I am alone most of the time.

I would love to have new friends (not only my boyfriend's friends), but most of people around seem rude!

I will try to join the group Just For Us Ladies In Dubai in the hope of meeting new nice people.

Cheeeeers

Reaction & acceptance of the family, dealing with his family, "change" of the husband after marriage etc. Are you guys covered? do you work etc?
Hi emaratiya!
Which country are you from? I'm spanish married to an emarati. My experience has been positive. His family was a bit reluctant to the marriage when he first announced that he wanted to marry me, but it took them only a couple of months to chnage their mind and finally accepted the engagement. Eversince they have been always very nice and treated me like a daughter/sister. Some members of the extended family have been a bit more sceptical about the marriage because they are more close minded, but they are still respectfull. Has he introduced you to his family already?

I'm not covered except for certain occasions in which I may wear an abaya. Also, I continued working after marriage. However, this is my experience, and you need to keep in mind that each experience is different. I think it is very important to clear where each of you stand. After all, it's a different culture so you need to know exactly what to expect from each other. Also, in the marriage contact you may add clauses (it's a very common practice) such as you will keep your job or your husband won't interfiere in your professional life.

I hope this helped a bit. When are you getting married?

I would also add an additional clause to the contract that your passport stays in your possession ALL the time as that will come in very handy when things don't necessarily go as planned.

^That's a very silly clause to add, it just means you're going into the marriage with clear distrust and bad intentions...:/
