The Indian Express reports that Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriguez will break the law by living together in Saudi Arabia unmarried.
According to Saudi law, it is illegal for unmarried individuals to reside in the same residence, but they are not expected to be punished by authorities.
Report says in spite of the legislation, it is not anticipated that the two will be prosecuted by the authorities.
According to the Spanish news agency EFE, Ronaldo’s standing makes it extremely improbable that he would be punished.
EFE also cited two Saudi attorneys who anticipated the government would not take action against the ex-Real Madrid, Juventus, and Manchester United player.
“Although the laws still prohibit cohabitation without a marriage contract, the authorities have begun to turn a blind eye and do not persecute anyone. Of course, these laws are used when there is a problem or a crime”, one lawyer said
Cristiano Ronaldo has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr.
After criticizing Manchester United’s hierarchy and management in a Piers Morgan interview, the Portugal captain was released.
Al Nassr said Ronaldo signed a contract until 2025 that will earn him nearly 200 million dollars a year.
Ronaldo met Rodriguez in 2016 while he was at Real Madrid; and they have two children, Bella and Alana.
In addition to Cristiano Jr., Ronaldo has Eva and Mateo, who are identical twins.
