A transformation is indeed under way, confirms royal adviser Hanan Al-Ahmadi, ”but we need to be able to create this change gradually and maintain our identity“.
This month we will celebrate our 3rd anniversary since meeting on Oasis!
We were both far each other when we first started chatting, he was in England and I was working in Saudi Riyadh at that time.

The dress code for women is governed by a strict interpretation of Islamic law and is enforced to varying degrees across the country.
The majority of women wear an abaya – a long cloak – and a head scarf.
Earlier this year, a prominent cleric called for even more modesty, urging the nation’s “daughters” to avoid “any abaya that has any decorations… Two weeks later, a video circulated on social media showing an anonymous Saudi woman walking around a deserted fort north of Riyadh wearing a miniskirt, in seeming defiance of such strict regulations on women’s clothing.
Public transportation, parks, beaches and amusement parks are also segregated in most parts of the country.Although women were not technically banned from driving under Saudi law, local authorities consistently refused to issue women with a driving licence, resulting in a de facto ban.Many Islamic scholars justified the ban on the grounds that allowing women the means to travel without supervision would inevitably mean contact with unrelated men, and thus would undermine the country’s strict principles of gender segregation.Unlawful mixing will lead to criminal charges being brought against both parties, but women typically face harsher punishment.Women are not allowed to use public swimming pools available to men and can swim only in private ones or female-only gyms and spas.
We are now excited to welcome our 1st baby next month!
