    It depends on many factors, what family/tribe and tribal area they are from, the degree of conservativeness of the family. If the women is from one of the deeply religious tribes, then yes, she would have many restrictions in her life. At the end of the day, every Saudi women - single or married - does have a formal guardian. Remember, one known Islamic scholar stated: a women should only leave her house twice in her life - once to get married and once to be buried.
