MENAFN - Arab Times Ahmad-Al-Sarraf Divorce rates are on the rise in society resulting in increasing tragedies of loss of morals and suffering of children, and the fragmentation and disintegration of society. According to statistics of the Ministry of Justice, divorce rates have reached more than 8, cases which mean one divorce per marriage. It was also noticeable that divorce between mixed-nationality marriages is lower than when the partners are Kuwaitis. Divorce in the case of mixed marriage happens if the husband is Kuwaiti and I personally believe that one of the reasons for this unreasonable rise in divorce rates in a financially comfortable society which is due to the state of sexual ignorance experienced by the majority of new grooms.

Kuwait's Appeals Court on Monday overturned a landmark verdict by a lower court granting a Kuwaiti who underwent sex-change surgery the right to register as a female, a lawyer said. We will challenge this verdict to the Court of Cassation [the highest court in the Gulf Arab state]," Adel al-Yahya said. The lower court, in the first verdict of its kind in conservative Kuwait, agreed in April to a request by Ahmad, a Kuwaiti male, and ordered the government to change officially his sex to female and his name to Amal. The verdict was based on a number of medical reports and a forensic examination carried out on the complainant, who stressed that the transsexual surgery was decided for "biological reasons". Amal, speaking in a clear female voice, said she underwent the sex-change surgery "outside of Kuwait as it was not possible to do it here". But because we live in a conservative society I could do nothing about it," said Amal, whose name means hope in Arabic. Amal later underwent several medical tests in Kuwait, and "they all proved that I was a female, not a male".
I read about the conservatism and strictness of Kuwait , but would like some clarification, please, on this issue. I have an ex-colleague who is a Filipina and who is working in Kuwait at the moment. I'd like to meet up with her during my travels. What would be the problems with this, if any?
