Check up before marriage

Medical check-up before marraige.
Have you ever heard of it?
If you haven't I'm not surprised,
Kuwait rarely speaks of it...
Yet it's for your own protection.

Even educated people may forget completely about this precaution,
why?
'Cause it's not part of our culture or tradition, you can say.

So I tell you, now.
After seeing, for the 1st time, a report on this
on Kuwaiti TV; "9ale7 linaashir".
Don't forget the check-up!

you have to get suck check ups in order to get married in saudi. even if the checkups show some trouble in the future, the couple can still get married if they want to, but only after understanding what the consequences are
I think its very important cause in our society there are a lot of marriages that involves cousins (which where most medical problems come from).
Hopefully one day it will be the norm.

I agree with doing them.

But in reality, when i think about it, say im marrying for love, and we have that check up & theres something there, what to do? I dont know.
Confusion.

Yazeed,
suck check ups?
That's good to hear. But in KSA I hear wayed AIDs, a3ootho be'allah.
Allah e3een. So check ups are should be vital, especially for AIDS checking as well... in addition to the blood tests and so on.

Delicately realistic,
First of all welcome. =)
Of course. Every sane person should agree, unless they're selfish and wanna hide something or are reckless to protect themselves and others.
I mean it's for YOUR safety.

But yeah, even if results show something... they have the choice to marry or not.

that's messed up.. they say its for "checking diseases" and shit.. but it really is to make sure that the girl is still a virgin.. invasion of privacy.. they should be able to trust the girl.. i mean no girl would be stupid enough to say that she is a virgin and then the guy finds out later on the honeymoon! i aint visiting a gynocologist until i find out im pregnant..

Huh? You're way off.
I'm not talking about that.

This checkup I'm takling about, may garboon to check that.
It's just blood tests, skin test and DNA tests... tests to look for possible passing on of disease to offspring.
Not a virginity check.

as for carrying on whether there are problems or not... i'll think about it IF or WHEN it happens.. no need to cause unwanted stress. it happened to someone i know btw (wont mention who) n she didnt marry the guy (even if she loved him but they had no future.. i mean whats a married life without children? if u are able to have them then you thank god n go ahead and make them lol) n married someone else. as for gynocologists i totaaalllyyy agree im not goin there till i have to... i saw their instruments freaky (and im gonna have to study gynocology at some point in my life.. lovlaaay)
