Pregnant before marriage – giving birth in Kuwait

Good day! I just want to ask about giving birth here in Kuwait. My friend is five months pregnant and she is married here in Kuwait to an American citizen. They are both working here. They just got married last Jan 12, 2018, is there any problem if she gives birth here? Because she got pregnant first before the marriage.

Name withheld

Answer: We are not in a position to say with certainty whether your friend will face a problem in giving birth here or not. We however know that having sex outside marriage is an offence here and people have been tried and convicted for breaking this law.

With this in mind, the advice we can give is that your friend must arm herself with reasonable answers to possible tough questions she might face if she decides to deliver her baby here.
