A brief overview

The release of the Demographic Consensus in 2019 of the Dubai population indicates that 15% is composed of native habitats while the remaining population comprises of expatriates. Asians account for 85% of the expatriate population, approximately 71% of the total population. Out of the Asians, about 51% hail primarily from India. In the UAE, you will come across people belonging to more than two hundred nationalities. Therefore, it is not surprising that many individuals from all across the globe get bitten by the love bug and decide to get married. When two individuals decide to get married in the UAE, registration must be done in a Sharia court. In the UAE, Islamic marriages take place following Sharia law provisions.

Legal requirements

Legal requirements have to be followed for registration of marriage in a Sharia court. As per this law, cohabitation is deemed illegal between individuals of the opposite sex if they have not entered into a marital relationship or are not related by blood. According to Islam, marriage is a legal binding between a man and a woman to protect the couple's rights and the children. In this country, expatriates can marry, but they will have to furnish documents based on their religion and nationality. If your country of birth does not have an embassy there, then the marriage between foreign couples can become complicated and time-consuming. In such cases, it may take more than four weeks for the completion of formalities.

Gaining an insight

Many foreign couples do not want to go through the complexities and want simple yet elegant marriage. That is why they prefer a destination where legal complexities and formal requirements are fewer. The thought of getting married abroad may be overwhelming for many individuals. Denmark has become an attractive spot where people can have a cheap and quick wedding.
