Divorce in the UAE

The divorce rate in the UAE has increased dramatically in the last few years, and is costing the government lots of money.

Many factors have contributed to this rising number of divorce rates. Experts suggest that some of the reasons include couples being married too early, too many cultures in the country and the financial strains of marriage in UAE. Furthermore, experts claim say that apart from social and economic factors, couples have unrealistic expectations of married life.

“Adding to the social factors that fuel the trend of divorce, are unrealistic expectations; that is people marrying without understanding that it’s not going to always be milk and honey, but that marriage, like any project in life, requires hard work, reviews and maintenance,” said Najla Al Awadhi, member of the UAE parliament, in an article published on Al Arabiya online.

    Hello. This can be kind of an “unconventional” question , but have some other visitors asked you how have the menu bar to look such as you’ve gotten it? I also have a blog and am really planning to modify around the theme, however I’m frightened to death to wreck havoc on it for concern of the search engines punishing me. I’m extremely a new comer to all of this …so i am simply not optimistic just how to try to to it all yet. I’ll just keep working on it one day at a time Thanks for any help you can offer here
