  1. >astaghferullah, u know if something like adultery or premarital sex happened between non-saudi women and saudi men, the saudi government will have the responsibilty to give their answers to Allah on the judgment day. SERVE U RIGHT!!!! Allah make all of us to be equal and making halal matters like marriage complicated will cause sins!!!!!!
