Illegitimate child, and mother's rights in Bahrain?
Some time ago I met a man who convinced me to go back to Bahrain to his country where we both stayed together for a 7 months. During this time I fell pregnant, and he claims this is the reason we can no longer get married. He serves in the military there and has Bedouin roots therefore a dishonour to his family and fear of losing his job. Since then I've returned home and delivered the child, which he wants no part of. What is my legal standing in Bahrain? Is there laws there to get him to acknowledge his child? What rights does this child have over there? If I go there with the baby will he have any rights to stop her from leaving again? We are both Sunni Muslim and this has caused a lot of issues for me at home also. Regards
