The culture of Yemen is intensely patriarchal, and households usually consist of a large extended family. Loyalty to family, a sense of decency, and hospitality are all core values of a typical Yemeni household. The Yemeni people follow Islam quite strictly- they cover their heads with a thob or shiwal and arranged marriages are quite common. Gender roles here are very clearly defined.
The Republic of Yemen is an Arab country in western Asia, occupying the southwestern to southern end of the Arabian Peninsula. It has coastlines with the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, and the Arabian Sea. Its territory includes more than 200 islands as well. The official language is Arabic and pretty much the sole religion is Islam. Yemen can be divided into five major regions: a coastal plain running north-south, the western highlands, the central mountains, the eastern highlands, and its desert regions. The climate is mostly desert with a hot and humid west coast.
