Go to the MInistry of Justice with Civil Id , passport and copies. The marriage license is not a license but a contract - so there MUST be a dowry stated and payment if divorce or other conditions like the husband allows the wife to work, give her money every month, etc. Whatever conditions you want.
The contract is written out and witnessed in fron of a judge
Could take a few hours

You mean like officially in court? That could be tedious.

The regular way is to one of the relatives to contact a 'ma2thoon' who will come on the specified date, fill in the contract, recite with him some religious lines, Boom you're married. The 'ma2thoon' may optionally take your papers and give them to his 'mandoob' to complete and approve all papers on your behalf , for a fee of course. He then calls you and delivers them to you at the location of your choosing.

its very easy,

first you need to go to the ministry of justice or the liberation tower you get a paper from them (have your civil id and your wife's and her dads just in case cant remember.

you get a paper, take keep it, hen you go to the premarital health check in al sabah hospitals area, where you are offered marital counseling sessions after you are confirmed to be safe for marriage to each other (DNA/gene wise)

you have a paper you must keep with you before the malach comes he needs it to be allowed,

then you arrange for a malach who gets paid 50/100 KD plus just to say a few lines, (ridiculous) you take that paper

to the ministry  of justice you get it official and take threee copies

1 to work

2 for the housing application

3 i cant remember for what


now while you do all these steps be sure that people familiar with the process will aid you along the way

note:  it will be surreal when you realize that after the mallach says a couple of lines your official allowed to do whatever.

now that you know this STOP. DONT DO IT. DO NOT DO IT. TURN BACK AND RUN.

if you insist know that in 2 years, you will have very little free time, gained about 10-15 kgs have a kid maybe consistently throwing your ps4 controllers go to sleep at 10 and no money to go and sit at a pool with friends and have a cold drink

reply in two years.. ill be waiting. with a spare broken ps4 controller. and no free time to game.

You forgot to mention that "Sale" is the deadliest word you will hear and when you hear it from her, your heart will be crying but you have to fake it and sound excited - while you spend the next few hours like an unknown carrying tons of bags and questioning his existence.
