Traditions, Lifestyle & Habits in Kuwait

Kuwait City is a modern bustling city that isn’t alien to trends of modern culture. More recently, life there has based on an entirely different traditions and backgrounds. Only some of the important traditions have managed to preserve till these days. The most important aspect of local culture is still the good relationship between family members. The family is considered to be a single entity and a situation, when only one member of the family is invited on some celebration, is simply intolerable. It is a common practice to make visits along with family, whether it is an ordinary trip to visit friends or an important holiday.

Respect and unquestioning obedience to elders is also an important attribute of family relationships. Since childhood, children are taught to help elders and listen to their wise counsel. Seniors, in turn, are required to help the younger members of the family and take part in their lives. Relationships between a man and a woman are also quite distinctive, as they are retired from eyes and considered a taboo subject for discussion. Even legitimate married couples can’t walk around in public places, hand in hand, because it is considered a manifestation of bad education and is contrary to religious canons.
Responsibilities of spouses differ: a man should provide material well-being of the family, and a woman has to do housework and to raise children. As it was noted above, each year the impact of modern culture affects lives of citizens more and more, so long, working women are no exception. Locals are very hospitable, they consider it their duty to accept guests adequately and entertain them, so that all were satisfied.

To receive guests there is a special room in each house, which is called ‘deevania.’ This part of the house is usually separated from the living area and is fully prepared to welcome guests. All that is left to do for hosts is to serve food. Traditionally only men take part in the meal. The invitation to visit is very honorable, so you shouldn’t refuse. Local culture is also reflected in the specifics of national costumes, which are very beautiful, and even casual clothing may seem very elegant and solemn to foreigners. Tourists should be sure to learn rules of the local etiquette before the trip, as it will avoid many misunderstandings and would make a vacation comfortable.
