interesting stuff...
“When my female students talk about marriage, it amazes me how cynical they are,” said a Dubai-based teacher. “They say they would rather never marry at all than marry a man who expects them to lead the same kind of life as their mother’s.
“And they often say they want to marry a non-national. Nor do they want to be second wives; they want to be the first wife, full stop.”
Improved education, access to media and overseas travel are factors which have influenced young women’s expectations.
As recently as the 1980s, most Arabian women were married by their late teens
Most girls pursue their studies with their families’ wholehearted blessing, although some middle-class parents see education as a means to a more affluent husband, rather than the passport to an independent career. Many students hope to combine a home life with a career.
“Some students may not want a career, but they want a good education, because having a good education will make them better mothers and therefore this benefits the family as a whole,” says Judy Turk, dean of communication and media studies at Dubai’s single-sex Zayed University.
It is still rare for an Arabian woman to reject marriage and motherhood outright —despite the scare stories, some undoubtedly generated by conservatives, about a new generation of unmarriageable, work-oriented spinsters — but many believe that their domestic responsibilities are perfectly compatible with a stimulating professional career.
However, the government is sending mixed messages to young Emirati women. On the one hand, Arabisation initiatives call on young men and women to fulfill their national duty and make an economic contribution to society; on the other hand, the Marriage Fund is promoting the notion that women should settle down with a suitable — if highly conservative — Emirati boy.
It may take another generation to resolve this dilemma. “Many [female] students argue it is better for the country if they get an education, so that they can work to help the country,” Mrs. Turk says.
“These young women have heard Sheikh Zayed talking about Emiratisation and the need for the young people of this country to run not just the government, but also the private sector, and there is an element of nationalism, of ‘taking our country back from the foreigners’.”

Emirati weddings are something highly unusual for Europeans - men and women separated and usually no music at all, for more openminded couples there might be some music playing for the womens party. All in all its rather boring, its over in a matter of an hour and its more the less a lot of handshaking, hasty eating and goin back home.
I love the food that emiratis serve on their weddings, i wished there was one every day hehehe

and which weddings are you going to...
sure, the religious folk dont play music, well not at least the music that most of us listen to day in and day out-- they put quran and/or will play traditional music (no singing, just instruments)
over in an hour --- again, i must ask which wedding you attended because i have never ever been to an emirati wedding that was anywhere close to ending in an hour.
in my opinion the local weddings (especially the ajami weddings :D) are much much much more interesting than the Western weddings...perhaps the ones that beat us/are the same, are the Indians...because they have awesome weddings too...

The father is asking a lot because the woman is worth a lot. When you finally meet your "the one", you'll understand.

This is from a womans perspective eh Zam? :wink:

I agree with Bleakus the dhowry is absurdly high these days...as are the prices for the weddings. Poor guys. No wonder they started taking wives of different cultures :(

Personally i don't like the concept of paying a dowry as a condition for marriage. Woman is being veiwed as commodity (in some parts of the world). Whoever can pay the highest dowry win the bid. :shock:

I am in related business and can brief you that middle class girls are traded to middle class husbands between 80 k to 120 k. If the family is highly positioned and the girl is rich or will inherit - that's another story. I doubt that most of the posters here are in the right category of husbands. And the weddings are really lavish, often ending early morning; some times at 7 or 8 am.
