I'm a Canadian, originally born in Trinidad in the Caribbean. I am nearing the end of a graduate Business and HR degree and have been considering moving to Dubai to work. A few of my friends live there and have found me some interesting work prospects, so now I want to give it some consideration.
Here's the thing: I'm a divorced mom and feel a bit uncertain about moving myself and my son there as a single female. I don't speak Arabic, and I'm not Muslim.
Would I be safe? Am I at any risk of being chastised as I'm a mother with no husband? Am I basically sentencing myself to permanent singlehood by moving to Dubai?
Any advice or perspectives from expats or nationals would be highly appreciated.
