- This is a contract drawn up between man and woman
(generally speaking, this is an Egyptian man and
European woman) in a Solicitor’s office and
costs approximately 100 LE. This is not in any way
a legal marriage contract and is not recognized
as such in any country other than Egypt. Even different
areas of Egypt have their own ideas about this contract
and may or may not accept it.
The purpose of this contract is so that you can
live as a couple, rent a flat or hotel room. An
Egyptian can be imprisoned if caught without papers.
Under Egyptian Law, Egyptian men and women are not
allowed to live together without being married,
whether this is to another Egyptian or not. This
contract can be broken any time by simply tearing
it up and there is no official record of this contract.
Several of these contracts can be in effect at the
same time and any financial rights the non-Egyptian
woman thinks she may have if there is a child involved,
are not recognized.
