The defendant denied the plaintiff’s claim alleging that she is his wife and the child is his son and that the defendant is a relative of the plaintiff. Early in 2011 he offered her the marriage. He brought a marriage contract and rented a house for her in Abu Adam. On 02/03/2012 she was blessed with the child Asir from him. The plaintiff admitted his paternity of the child.

They then lived in Ibrahim`s house and I did not go to them in their house. The defendant was the one who told him the same. During the days of her pregnancy both couples came to me saying that they wanted to conclude the marriage contract before the court. He was by accompanied her. I did not know who rented the house in Jabra. I did not attend the naming ceremony of the infant. 2. Abdul Kader Osman Abd Al Rahman Kambal testified that both parties were his relatives who lived with Amir`s family in a single house in Jabra. Then the defendant travelled and came back pregnant. I was with the plaintiff who was a very close friend. We went to receive her at the airport. At night I left them. Some days later, he called me and I went to him in Al Souk Al Arabi. We went together to a house in Abu Adam where I found the defendant alone. I entered and sat with them. Whilst going there he was carrying food supplies. She was pregnant and he told me nothing about his relationship with her. Amir had never told me that he married her. She came from Dubai pregnant. I neither attended the marriage nor the naming ceremony. She named the infant Asir Amir. I know that there a relationship between them but no marriage.
