    (ANSAmed) - DUBAI -a A Kuwait woman has won the right in court to marry a Pakistani immigrant. The 29-year-old university-educated woman with an important government position was not allowed by her family to wed a Pakistani immigrant working as an electrician, and had decided therefore to take the case to court. In an interview with Gulf News, the lawyer said that he had initially been skeptical about the woman's intentions, but following a series of conversation with the couple and their friends was convinced and decided to accept ''the strangest case of his career''. Love had blossomed between the two at least ten years ago and had stood up to both pressure from and rejection by the woman's family, and threats and physical attacks from her brothers against the electrician. The 'Kuwaiti Juliet' told the details of the couple's relationship in court and the numerous marriage proposals she had since rejected. The judges agreed to the marriage and ruled that her family's approval was thus not legally necessary.
