saudi men

Makkah: A new law in Saudi Arabia bans men from marrying Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Chadian and Burmese women, while it sets new restrictions on marrying Moroccan women.

According to the Saudi Makkah daily, any Saudi man who wishes to marry a Moroccan woman has to prove that her profile is free of any crimes and serious diseases, and that she is not a drug addict.

Even though a Moroccan woman’s profile meets all the requirements, in order to be able to marry an already married Saudi man, he must obtain formal approval from his first wife.
