After signing with Al Nassr, five-time Ballon d’Or winners Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriguez are prepared to violate a law in Saudi Arabia. Ronaldo signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Saudi Pro League team after leaving Manchester United as a free agent. He is set to make a record-breaking £173 million per season as a result of the two-and-a-half-year agreement.
Prior to his official presentation as Al Nassr’s biggest-ever signing, he flew into Riyadh, the Saudi capital, earlier this week. During the ceremony at Nassr’s Mrsool Park, Ronaldo’s family was additionally brought onto the field. Read More: Further delay in Cristiano Ronaldo’s debut for Al-Nassr
While the location of the clan’s residence during their Middle Eastern adventure is unknown, Ronaldo and Georgina will be breaking the law by cohabitating in Saudi Arabia.
What law do Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriguez break?
Being unmarried and residing in the same home is prohibited in Saudi Arabia. In 2016, Ronaldo and his girlfriend Georgina connected while she was employed at a Gucci store in Madrid. Bella and Alana are their two children. In addition, Ronaldo has twins Eva and Mateo and his oldest son Cristiano Jr., all of whom were conceived through surrogate mothers.

However, since Ronaldo and Georgina haven’t yet tied the knot, living together under the same roof in Saudi Arabia would technically be against the law.
Will Ronaldo get in trouble with Saudi Arabian authorities?
But according to a report from EFE, Ronaldo, one of the most marketable athletes in the world, will probably get off the hook. The relevant authorities are not expected to punish the power couple, according to two Saudi lawyers. Read More: Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to a two-year contract with Al-Nassr
One said: “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.”
A second added: “The Saudi Arabian authorities, today, do not interfere in this matter [in the case of foreigners], but the law continues to prohibit cohabitation outside of marriage.”
