In Medieval times, kings and queens arranged marriages for their sons and daughters that would strengthen political relations and would make a somewhat sacred bound between countries ... could this still be happening?
This week, the son of the King of Bahrain, Sheikh Naser Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, married the daughter of the Governor of Dubai, Sheikha Sheikha Bint Mohammad Bin Rashed Al Maktoum.
Congratulations to the newlyweds! Wishing them a lifetime of joy and happiness.
But dare I ask ... Is this a marriage of convenience?
