Sharing Accommodation - a word of caution (Abu Dhabi)


Dear All

Looking at a number of posts, many of us are understandably wanting to come together to share accommodation and split costs, which is great.

However, I just wanted to raise awareness of the fact that whilst it’s not a problem in many countries, cohabiting (unmarried men and women sharing accommodation) is illegal in the UAE (though obviously it goes on)

Since it’s hard to know who might be looking at these forums, all I would urge is discretion is considered in making or trying to find accommodation arrangements on here, to reduce any risk of getting on the wrong side of authorities.

Please feel free to come back with your thoughts.


PS I am not personally against anyone’s particular living arrangements, I post this thread only out of a concern for fellow members
