Visa for a partner (Manama)


I am a soon to be expat in Bahrain, I want to move with my partner for 9 years, my company has no issue with it, but it seems that the Bahraini laws will only grant him a resident visa if we are married. In The Netherlands we have a "Living together contract" that is as binding and legal as a marriage document. Could anyone tell me if he will be granted a visa? Is any of the Dutch expats in the same situation as me? Can you please share your experiences? This is becoming a show stopper for me. Is tehre any other way to get him a visa if he does not have a job yet?
thank you in advance for the information you can share!
