sleeping in double room when not married

My friend is planning to book a holiday with her boyfriend in dubai. Work colleagues mentioned to me today that you are not allowed to sleep in one double room if you are not married. Is that true?

And before you say 'but their passports are in different names'

It is common in many countries for women not to change their name - including most Arabic countries and Italy for example.

My surname is different to my husband's and it has never been an issue.

No one will know they are not married unless they tell them, they will just assume they are and refer to them as Mr First name and Mrs First name
