Dubai is encouraging young Emiratis to get married and the government is expanding its support with the launch of the “Dubai Weddings” programme.

On Monday (Jan 15), the Community Development Authority announced the program to support citizens getting married in the emirate, reducing their financial burdens, encouraging them to get married and improving family stability.

The program reflects the enthusiasm of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai to provide solutions to the challenges faced by couples preparing for marriage. Its goal is to offer solutions, initiatives and support to alleviate their worries and encourage them to build strong families. The ultimate goal is to improve family unity and stability.

The ‘Dubai Weddings’ program incentives help reduce marriage costs as the program provides wedding planning and celebration services in modern, fully equipped halls in various areas of Dubai: Al Barsha, Al Lisaili, Hatta and soon Al Twar Hall.

Couples preparing to get married will also take part in an awareness program and receive family counseling on marriage planning, family management and financial matters.

Strengthen family stability

Hessa bint Issa Buhumaid, director general of the Community Development Authority in Dubai, highlighted that the program aims to improve the family and social stability of citizens and focus on increasing the number of Emirati families in society.

He hopes that the program will usher in a new phase of social awareness, emphasizing the importance of building a happy and stable family within supportive financial and social conditions. The aim is to divert attention from the non-essential aspects of wedding celebrations, which can put an additional burden on young people and cause delays in marriage.

Hessa said: “The immediate goal is to provide financial and social support to young people to encourage them to get married. But we hope that the program will also contribute to creating a positive model for wedding celebrations and changing stereotypical ideas related to exaggerated celebrations. “This will help a wider segment of young men and women marry at an early age, which will contribute to increasing the number of Emirati families in society.”

Sheikh Mohammed launched the Dh208 billion Dubai Social Agenda program earlier this month, one of whose key objectives is to double the number of Emirati families in the emirate within a decade.

Sheikh Mohammed announced Dubai Social Agenda 33 on January 14. The ruler of Dubai approved a series of projects for the year 2024, and Dubai Social Agenda 33 is inspired by the overarching theme “Family: the foundation of our nation.”

The approved projects include the allocation of 3,500 plots of land to be distributed among the citizens of Dubai, in addition to 2,300 ready-to-move-in houses throughout Dubai valued at Dh5.5 billion. The move reflects Her Highness’s unwavering commitment to provide all necessary support to citizens to ensure the well-being and prosperity of their families. His Highness also issued directives to name the new area designated for the citizen housing project as “Latifa City”.
