A Truth Universally Acknowledged....

With this attitude, the husband may take some time...
Some might say a woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle. Well, no sane person would, but you are definitely an object of interest here in Dubai if you don't have a husband.

Add into the mix being (ahem) out of your twenties and you are regularly scrutinized by other nationalities who are often married off and up the spout at an age where I was happily raving on podiums in a lycra catsuit. Ah, those were the days.

Example below - a real conversation between a friend and her (Indian) office boy:
  • Aziz: You find husband this year?
  • Friend: Yes Aziz
  • Aziz: Good, you need husband. You like English husband?
  • Friend: I like Arabic husband
  • Aziz: You speak Arabic?
  • Friend: No, but I am learning
  • Aziz: Good then you will find husband
  • Friend: Inshallah (if God wills it)
Only in Dubai. Inshallah, indeed!
