 In the UAE, unmarried couples are allowed to live together, including drinking


  • The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has announced relaxation of laws that allow unmarried couples to live together, including under the influence of alcohol.
  • According to foreign media, extraordinary amendments to the Islamic Personal Law have allowed unmarried couples to live together, while penalties for drinking and selling alcohol have been abolished for those 21 years of age or older.
  • Under the amended law, "honor killing" will be a felony, while men who harass women in any way will be severely punished.
  • The UAE government says legal reforms are part of efforts to improve the country's investment climate and strengthen "tolerance principles".
