Ex pat divorces on the rise in Dubai

Figures released by the Dubai Statistics Centre show that while the number of divorces between Emiratis increased by seven per cent between 2009 and last year, expat divorces increased by over four times as much. In 2011, 445 foreign couples living in Dubai ended their marriages. The stresses of relocating to a new country – away from supportive friends and family, and where only one partner might have a job lined up – are often cited as a key reason behind expat divorce in the UAE, which has one of the highest divorce rates in the Muslim world.
