Grooms in Saudi must have pre-marriage drug test

Step to prevent marital problems

Men seeking to marry Saudi women must have drug tests before the marriage, a newspaper in the Gulf kingdom reported on Thursday.

The decision by “high authorities” aims to prevent marital and family problems that could arise from drug addiction or dealing, Ajel said.

“The decision affects mainly foreigners seeking to marry Saudi women. They must also be subject to medical examination for any contagious diseases,” it said.
