    Hi Blizzy... In addition to Ilham's response, Dubai has conducive working environment for women more than in any other countries in the GCC. I understand what goes thru the mind of your friend since I am working in the recruitment business and have been recruiting western expats. I don't blame your friend cos the ME is not getting good rep in the media. Dubai like any country has its good and bad points but I believe the good still outweighs the bad at this point. Women are free to pursue their interests, there are good schools for the kids and there are enough activities to be had for young and matured couples may it be the outdoors or the club scene. Though like what the other guys are saying it is quite expensive here, tho your friends (if not US national) can enjoy the tax break which is sort of an incentive in working in the ME. One thing your friend can do is ask her husband to request a "look & see trip" from his would be employer before making the final move.

    I undersand your point, Dubai is very different from gulf arabian cities! meaning tourists and people in general wear very normal close! it's very liberal, people go to the beach and have fun at the western style life, They have made of this city the new "las vegas"based in the middle east, The only thing is that you have to hold an emirati licence t drive, cause life without car s impossible! or have a driver, it's quite easy to have a driver if your hasband got good job! it's a safe city! very nice envirnment and lots of activities and things to explore so don't hesitate to come!!
