a saudí military guy can marry a non muslim women ?
i really aprrecite ur answer thanks..

Answer
Hi Julieta,

What I know is the Saudis cannot marry women that aren't Saudi unless they have a very good reason for it. They need to get state permission first.

As for Islam it allows Muslim men to marry women that hold Ibrhimi faith  i.e. Christians & Jews.  

But it he has another nationality like the American one that he doesn't have to worry about any of this.
