  1. Welcome EnglishGent,I too would like to welcome you to the forum and WOW WOW WOW you got a visa without an interview, hand on heart I think it was because your wife had lived , worked and studied in the UK before you got married and that helps a lot in making a decison.I am so pleased , well elated to read that your story had an extreamely happy ending and i wish you well for the future.I have read and listened about too many people refused , like Debbie my husband too was refused but a battle and hard slog through the courts finally got my husband back into the UK.
  2. Hi there,CONGRATULATIONS on your pending marriage. My wedding took around 90 seconds and it was all over !!! I asked if i needed a translator but was told all that was required of me was to say yes twice , once to confirm my name and once to confirm i wanted to marry.When I heard my name mentioned and the registrar stopped and looked at me i knew i had to say yes in Turkish.Again after a few words in Tukish and I heard my name and then my husbands name mentioned and the registrar stopped and looked at me i knew it was my cue to say yes again.It was all done and dusted in about a minute and ha

    Hi Karen,Is anyone who can just keep an eye on your appt whilst its left vacant? Just incase !I bet you are looking forward to seeing your husband again , enjoy your days in the UK to gather your thoughts.Whilst at home have a look Sunny like said and see if you can find an article in the local news about this woman glassing another (not that you cant in Turkey) .It really does sound like you need a new laywer but what you have said isn't uncommon I believe, some tend tend to collect and not do much for it.Enjoy your trip to the UK as much as you can and gather your thoughts

    Hi Karen,I am so sorry to hear that the intimidating is still continuing, On this occasion you have 3rd party wintesses, the resturant staff !! the female wanted to sit right next to you after like you said, you allegedly hit her.You have a witness in your friends, however I am not sure if like in the UK that friends and family witness statements don't carry so much clout because its considered that they will be biased although they are used of course but having any witness who isn't directly connected with either party is an absolute bonus.I for one couldn't live like what you're going throug
  5. Many thanks Sunny, I just couldn't see anything around that indicated further burials , albeit it was the background.Yes of course my condolences to his family , how shocking to hear he was only in his 50's.
  6. what wonderful news, as some of you know I am in to animal charities and support when I can. It is great news to hear the RSPCA have come to Turkey.
  7. Hi All,Please excuse my ignorance here , the photos appear to show the burial taking place in a woodland, can people be buried where they like or how does it work. This a subject I know nothing about except like already mentioned muslims get buried very quickly after death
  8. Thank you for your replies, I can see with each generation that people change , i was curious about the older element . My husband is adament that within 10 years most part of Turkey will be the same as the rest of the world, already children are begining to back chat their elders when , when he was a lad no one would dare do this. He has also noticed in the evenings in Ortkoy (Aksaray not Istanbul) that there are groups of teenagers hanging out in the streets when again not so many years ago this was unheard of.I joked and told him to open a nightclub and his repsonse was " Allah Allah" lol,
  9. My brother in law is a channel hopper on tv and if he comes across a channel which has a woman wearing something that reveals a bit too much the channel is switched at lightening speed if his parents,children or wife are in the room (i guess he doesnt if he is alone lol) , we were watching a circus once for about an hour and then the trapese artist came on with her thong, well he glanced sideways at me, i started sniggering because he started blushing and i know what he was thinking, his eyeballs nearly fell out their sockets my sister in law slapped him and the remote was snatched out his
  10. Hi All,As many of you live in the resorts and have many Turkish friends whether you could answer a question ive pondered over for a while and thats "have the older element of the Tukish community become immune to the way tourists behave sometimes" (not always) .I have wondered if the older members of the community have become immune to loutish behaviour (again im not tarring all with the same brush) and the dress code of tourists or have they just had to accept it but still feel uncomfortable around tourists . Its something ive wondered about for a while. When i say dress code i mean shorts, a
  11. perhaps i didnt word my post very well,you have to be in Turkey 21 days if you apply for the CONI after you get to Turkey, just like in the UK you have to wait 21 (sorry i said 28 days before) BUT if you get your CONI in the UK before you fly out you can get married straight away without having to wait for the cert to be processed.sorry if i confused you
  12. Hi Karen, You only need to stay in Turkey 28 days IF you apply for the certificate of non impediment once you are over there, the same rule applies as it does in the UK, You apply at your registry office then have to wait 28 days whilst it is published to allow anyone to appeal against it.If you take it with you, ie apply in the uk you can get married as soon as the other paperwork that cannot be done in the UK has been completed, which can be done if you are on the ball in 48hrs !! , well i did LOLHope this helps
  13. Just brilliant, abosolutely brilliant Dande.
  14. well i know football wouldnt be on the agenda, i think my husband hates it more than i do . but boy am i glad im not the only one who has one lol. Living in the Uk i guess im not used to people wanting to actually talk to someone else let alone a stranger .
  15. yeah i guess om speaking from a womans point of view, our longest trip was 12 hrsd and i think i managed to get out of my husband is that the steward on this trip was hoping to leave and go to uni, that was it in 12 hrs lol
