Marriage is a legal contract that allows a man and a woman to form a family under the Sharia Law in the UAE. It is against the law for a man and a woman to live together, and it is punishable under the UAE marriage law or UAE Penal Code.
All nationalities are allowed to conduct their marriage in Dubai or in any neighbouring Emirates as long as they are residents of the country. However, it is essential that the marriage contract between the two is registered in a Sharia court in the UAE. This means that it legally meets the requirements under the law. As we are leading family lawyers in Dubai UAE, this is exactly what we can do for you.
However, before deciding to get married, it must be noted that Muslim marriage or Islamic marriages are conducted based on the Sharia Law, which stipulates that both the groom and bride must be Muslims or the groom is a Muslim and the woman is of “Ahl Al-Kitaab”. But a woman is not allowed to marry a non-Muslim man unless he has proof of conversion to Islam.
There are a couple of special cases and provisions for the UAE nationals, Emirati women who are planning to marry expatriate men, and GCC nationals and other Islamic countries.
