Unmarried couples in Dubai

I got a question about whether or not unmarried couples can stay together in a hotel room (or apartment) in Dubai.

I could answer this question in detail but it would just be a repetition of what has already been explained here.

In short it is illegal for unmarried couples to be together (even in a car) in Dubai but no one really cares about it. But that doesn’t mean they might not wake up tomorrow. So if you are planning to do such a thing make sure you understand the consequences.
