All dating friends site in turkey Central il adult chat
The first signs of a difference in courting rituals between my home country of the UK and Turkey were evident on my first holiday.
We had signed up for a rough and tumble Jeep safari around the mountains of Marmaris.
The traditions and wedding styles largely depends on which area of Turkey the couple originates.
One friend working in tourism returned to his village, to follow up a potential match arranged by his mother.
We passed beautiful waterfalls on unknown country roads before arriving at a small village.
This was traditional Turkey away from the manmade holiday resorts.
It was a sign that his daughter was ready for marriage.
However, I was more interested in the roof of one of the houses. The guide told me the father of the house had put it there.The father would then asses the suitor’s financial position and the ability to provide for his daughter and the children that would be born so soon after the wedding.I was truly shocked and over the next five years would hear of many other regional traditions.This is where you have to be careful as many people assume arranged and forced marriage to be the same thing. My husband’s sister was identified as a potential bride for one young man living in the same town.After family discussions about his ability to provide as a father and husband, my husband’s sister said yes to the marriage. She never had to complete the walk of shame in the early hours of the morning.
