Where did all the Kuwaiti gay men go?

A+ A-

So I've been thinking for along time now to look for a %gay guy from Kuwait who's willing to get into a cover marriage or fake marriage. And I can't find anyone who knows someone who's willing to get into this. I don't know if I'm crazy to even think of this but I really don't have a choice here I'm 29 yo and I need to start living my life. Because my family treating me like a property owned by them it's like I have no feelings nor independent mind to think for myself. My father is always treating me like a burden and he can not wait to hand me to a "husband" and have babies. I'm disgusted by the thought of this. I've been through a lot in my life and I have the craziest family ever and I really need to get away from them. So please someone help.

    I think in general for the Gulf a marriage of convenience is not that common, but I'm also kind of skeptical about this arrangement because our families here are very connected so if they find out you're not living with the fake husband they can connect the dots really quickly unless you live abroad. Are you thinking of staying in Kuwait or is there an option for moving? Maybe there's such an arrangement abroad, but in Kuwait it might be tough to get away with it. Families here intervene too much in marriage and your married life (and then all the questions start again with the kids/house and god knows what else.)

    I want to continue my studies abroad. They say when you get married you can go with your husband. That's there answer to every thing. I'm depressed because of them.. No comment.
    But I actually need someone who wants to fake it and help me out I've thought about every thing.
    Yesterday I've had it I was crying all night long and I wanted to come out to them but thankfully I slapped my face so hard and I came to my senses. I just have to do something I'm loosing my mind. Now I've reached to a point where I'm actually saying what I really feel and opened up and I never do that.

      I'm really sorry you're going through that! Will your family at least let you study abroad without first committing to marriage? Tell them you are putting your studies and career first ... will that work?

      It doesn't even have to be someplace far, can be in Dubai, or anywhere else, just as long as you can have a bit of space from them to live your life (a lot of single lesbians live and work in the Gulf, away from their families, it can work.) Start applying abroad and then show them the acceptance letter once you get it, tell them it's a huge offer and you need to do this and work independently.
