What law will CR7 break?

According to Marca, Ronaldo and Georgina will be breaking the law living together because they have not yet tied the knot.

Per English outlet the Express, it is illegal to live under the same roof without being married, raising expectations about how Ronaldo and Rodriguez will be treated in the situation.

However, two Saudi Arabia lawyers are of the opinion that the authorities will ignore the infraction in this case.

What the lawyers say

"Although the laws still prohibit cohabitation without a marriage contract, the authorities have started to turn a blind eye and do not prosecute anyone. Of course, these laws are used when there is a problem or a crime," one lawyer said, via the Express.
"The Saudi Arabian authorities today do not interfere in this matter [in the case of foreigners], but the law still prohibits cohabitation outside marriage," said the other.
