  1. Hello everyone before 4 months i was in Istanbul ( I am not Turkish) , i met a Turkish man twice , he asked my Instagram and i added him, after a week he start sending me messages, first of all he told me he was divorced after a marriage that last for 2 years and knew his ex-spouse for 4 years, (with no kids) he said he doesn't like her anymore,he is 35 and i am 21, he tried after while to talk dirt and try to get my number , and keep sending his number and photos and i stopped him and told him i will no longer talk to him if he didn't stop,and he stopped it and never repeat it after that,he asked me after 2 month for marriage i said yes , he said he wants to have a family and be a father , he showed me to his mother and she liked me , he said he doesn't have money to marry so i have to wait this summer or next year i offered money help he became angry for a weak from me , besides he doesn't talk too much to me frequently he sent me message before he sleep (he works till 22:30) ,talking how much he loves me and our future life and wishing if i am with him ,and i am a bit scary that he is only have fun with me and maybe because he is old he will look for a local Turkish girl and make it easy, we only have the agreement of marriage and that i will move to Istanbul to live there we did not discuss anything else, AND i can`t keep talking to him he can`t run a conversation and i feel so bad to do that instead of him and he doesn't talk too much because he doesn't know English and i do not know Turkish (Using google Translate) , recently i am learning ,,, so what do you think people ?,,,,P.S i love him and my family agreed
  2. Please help with situation.

    Hi there I hope someone can help me. I am a British Citizen and I married a Turkish man in Fethiye in 2000. We had two children together (girls, now 16 and 14 - they were both born in the UK). We bought an apartment together in Fethiye in 2001 and lived in Turkey. Both names are on the tapu. After 14 years of marriage, in early 2014, I found out many awful things about my husband - he was having a 3 year affair with a local girl who worked at the cinema, he was also using prostitutes and filming himself (I found the camera), he was watching teenage pornography and in thousands of debt without my knowledge, had a gun in the house, plus many other things. After he knew I found out about all this, he just blamed me for his behaviour. I knew for my sanity and my children's safety that I had to leave. On the evening of 13th June 2014, my children and I got to Dalaman airport without my husband knowing and we boarded a plane to the UK. I left my house, my job, my friends, we left everything behind. I wrote a letter to my English neighbours explaining why I was leaving. I brought everything with me - I have the marriage certificate, the tapu, the camera and all the evidence of his unreasonable behaviour etc. It is now 2017 and my girls and I have never gone back to Turkey. We are now settled in the UK. The girls rarely speak to their father. However... I have heard a rumour that he has recently divorced me over in Turkey - probably on the grounds of desertion. After all, it has been over two years since I left and I have not had the money to have ever asked a solicitor in the UK for help with it. My ex husband will not answer my FB messages whether he has divorced me or not, but he has been asking my daughter for our address. My question is: How has he managed to get a judge to grant the divorce when there is property or children involved? What happens now in regards to the apartment if he has divorced me? Can I instruct a solicitor here or in Turkey to sell the apartment because half of it is mine still? He has never paid any child maintenance while I have been in the UK. I want the value of my half of the apartment back because as far as I know he is living it in without any worries now. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you x
  3. Hi, I'm a Malaysian. I came to Turkey in 28th July and left on 28th December this year. I don't need a visa to enter Turkey but I did overstay by two months because of residency application issue. I'm engaged to a Syrian in Turkey, we live in Gaziantep. I applied for a short term residency in Gaziantep in August but got an appointment on 16th December, my fiance ensured me it's okay to overstay while waiting for the ikamet appointment. On the day of the appointment, the Goc Idaresi employee told me that he couldn't accept my papers ( I've prepared all the necessary) because he is going to reject my application, and that will be a trouble for my future application unless we can get married within 10 days then he can help (my fiance has a work permit in Turkey, but I am not sure we can get married in Turkey), The reason he gave was the short-term residency in cities near the borders of Syria such as Gaziantep, Antakya, Sanliurfa and etc will only be granted to Syrians. He advised me to leave the country and pay the fine at the airport and they will not issue any entry ban and I shall able to enter the country and apply for the ikamet within 10 days in other cities that are not close to the Syrian borders. I double confirmed with the officer at the visa violation office and he said no ban will issue. But I have reservation about his answer. So my questions are as below: (1) How can I find out for sure that I'm not banned for a certain period to enter Turkey? (2) Can a Malaysian and a Syrian get married in Turkey? (3) How to resolve the ikamet issue? Any answers or suggestions are greatly appreciated as I'm waiting anxiously in Malaysia, counting the days I can get back to my fiance. Many thanks in advanced.
  4. My Father is Turkish and my Mother is Canadian and they divorced. Now, my father has re-married. My father says things I can not repeat about my mother. And he said his wife is now my mother. My cousin, who is educated (actually an Engineer) and Turkish also says my mother from now on is my Father's wife, rather than my mother. Is this normal/typical Turkish culture/behaviour?
  5. Hello all, Some may be familiar with my situation, some not--at any rate, I am living in Turkey right now working as an English teacher and wondering the best way to marry my Turkish girlfriend. I wonder if it's better to get married in America first or in Turkey, then America? The easy answer is to apply for a marriage visa in America, but I've heard that takes a long time to process and we are currently living in Turkey for the foreseeable future (this might cause some problems with the marriage visa, if we are not currently living in America?). We plan to move back to America for a period time in the future, but in order to live together in Turkey we need to be married, hence the urgency. Thanks to any one with previous experience who can provide any advice. -Thomas and Seda
  6. Hello, My partner will be coming to Canada in a few months and we are debating as to whether it will be simpler to legally marry in Canada then register our marriage in Turkey afterward or wait until our actual wedding in Turkey and legally marry over there. I've looked up the marriage process in Turkey and it appears I will need to get my birth certificate sent back to Pakistan for authentication then get a notarized translation of that, a statement-in-lieu of notice which must also have a notarized translation (to prove I have no impediment to marry) from the government of Canada which additionally requires I provide a certified true copy of my citizenship card, landing document, and a statutory declaration to the Canadian government, medical check up results from a doctor in Turkey, passport and photocopy, and 6 passport sized photos. In Canada he and I just need to provide our passports as ID in order to get married, he has no extra requirement despite being a foreigner/visitor in Canada. What I'm curious about is if he and I legally marry in Canada (which seems so much simpler), what do we have to do when we go to Turkey to have our marriage legally registered there as well? What do we need to do to get our marriage recognized/registered in Turkey? He's a Turkish citizen and I have dual nationality in Canada and Pakistan if that provides any useful information. Also, since I'll be moving to Turkey I will need to apply for a family residence permit, so do I apply for that before getting our marriage recognized in Turkey, or after? Additionally, he will be going back to Turkey a year before I come there for the wedding. Would he need to register it as soon as he gets back? And if he does, do I need to take further action once I get there? I can't seem to find any information about this scenario in English online. If anyone can provide some information I would be grateful.
  7. Moving abroad before army

    Hi my fiancée and I have been together for 4 years. He's turkish and I'm British and he's coming 21 years of age. He has delayed the army for a few years due to his mums health and is due to go in, in 2017. We're quite happy to do this however, several of his family members have said if I got a lawyer on the English side he will have a chance to come into the country before he does his army service and we would be able to buy out of it after 3 years... Does anyone know the possibility or risks of this? Before we pay out for help and end up with nothing. This would be so much better for us if possible as my father is ill and it would be a chance to get to know each other before he passes and also be able to start a family. If not we will continue on with our original plan.
  8. Good day! Pardon me if the question was given in the past. I have been scouring the net trying to look for a page which could enlighten me of detailed information and some led me here. I am a Filipina and planning to move to Turkey for good. Anyways, my Turkish boyfriend and I are in a long-distance-relationship for almost a year now. He asked me to visit Turkey in a tourist visa so we could get married in his country. I am honestly so puzzled of the idea. Is there no way that I can get a fiancee visa instead? Applying for a tourist requires big money and more effort. In addition, Turkish embassy in the Philippines is very strict in requirements compliance. Don't get me wrong, we both have stable jobs and even if he gave me guarantees, I am still not confident of it. I already checked the e-visa, unfortunately, not applicable in my country. I would like to get more alternative before going to the embassy. Please help me out :-(
  9. Name Change

    I got married in Turkey 4 years ago and - since I was in a hurry and didn't do my homework properly - was sort of put on the spot regarding the surname issue and had to accept them adding my husband's name to my name on paperwork. Didn't want to make a big fuss about it then, thinking that after obtaining my Turkish citizenship, I would be able to go to court and get (just!) my name back. Well... I've just obtained the citizenship but on my nüfüs cuzdanı, they would only list my husband's last name (without mine). Spoke to a lawyer yesterday and she said there's no way in Turkey for me to just have my own surname without my husband's. Needless to say how silly that is.... considering that most countries don't enforce such nonsense on women. Anyway.... my question is: if I get divorced here, and later on remarry the same person in a country whose laws allow me to keep my maiden name, would the Turkish authorities impose my husband's surname on me again, when registering that marriage in Turkey? Or would the laws of the other country prevail (ones which allow me to keep my own name)? Thanks a million!!
  10. Hi. I need some advices. To make the story short; I met a turkish man in May in Alanya. Met, of course, at a club. He was in Alanya at a holiday. We had a great week together and I went back to Turkey in September to meet him. I had my sister with me. We stayed in Alanya again. I am going back in November to meet his family and I am staying in Turkey for two more weeks. I ahve told him that before we do anything he has to visit me in Norway and meet my family also. So he can meet them and also get a more understanding of where I come from and my culture. And if we ever going to move here (if not I moving to Turkey) he can see how the country is first. I am 29 and he is 32 years old. We have been talking about what we should do, b/c if the relationship should work for å long time one of us got to move. I am a social worker and I don't know how to speak turkish (but I can learn), so I think it will be hard for me to get work in Turkey. But in Norway... if you want to get a job you almost need an education 99% of the time. So I think it would be hard for him to get a job here. And he need to learn Norwegain of course. The one thing that scares me is to not know. Should I let go of my life here, sell my apartment, quit my job to an uncertain future? Or should he? I also have study loan that I need to pay, so I need a job if I am moving to Turkey in the future. I can't ask him to pay for my debt. But I think I have found a middleway I have the right to get unpaid permition from work if I want to study some more. I can study online. I was thinking of Sociology or maybe Journalism for one year. I can rent out my apartment for a year and live in Turkey. I will, of course, get more study loan. I not shure if I can get a visa for a year? But then me and my boyfriend will figure out if we are right for eachother, the normal - everyday life we will experience together ++. And if I do this next autumn I think I have what I need with the salary per year ++ if we want to move to Norway and he must apply for a visa. I don't know... I haven't told him about my idea yet. He wants us to get married and say that we can live in Turkey or Norway. It is up to me where we are going to live. When I go back in November we have to figure this out. What should we do? What have you been doing if you have been in a relationship with someone who lives in a different country? I will be happy for the respons and advice from you! Anything will help because I am lost and my brain is tired of all the thinking. PS! This wasn't so short after all. Sorry about that!
  11. Dear Members, Hope all is well. I have a simple question which I urgently needs an answer for based on your accurate knowledge or expertise. Basically, I used to live in Istanbul for over two years on a student permit. My education now is completed and I move to Dubai for work proposes. Once or twice a month I visit GF here in Istanbul for 10 days or more and enter the country using my valid student permit. My permit will expire on November and given the fact the new April rules and the permits that takes months to be delivered and given that I can’t stay for long time in Turkey for that, I have decided not to renew it after it expire. Now I am getting married in December (only Baldyea Nikah), I know and have all the needed documents. My question is, do I need a resident permit in order to get married in Turkey? Or a valid tourist visa should do that job. Please advise. Thank you, Adham
  12. I have gone through pretty much all of the posts here for an answer but nothing quite exactly the same. I am Chinese (not a Muslim) in Asia and the Turkish boy has been here for work for the past few years. I am older by 5 years and he is currently 31. We have been dating for over a year now and we have gotten serious and talking about marriage. I have recently also flown to Turkey to meet with his family (and he has met mine) but unfortunately they are adamant against us having a future and instead wants to find him a suitable candidate. He wants to end the relationship now as he sees no future to this to continue. I know family ties are really strong especially in traditional family but I am reluctant to let go of something i firmly believe in. Although i also understand that love isnt the priority in muslim families. I just am not sure if I should hang on for the sake of hoping they will eventually relent since he has a couple more years here and will not be moving back to Turkey so soon. And that he is quite ready to settle down but we just dont see how we can work this out without breaking his family ties. I have going to start understanding Islam more too for the sake of the promise i have made to him and myself since we started dating and also to find peace in myself. But i cant say i am not hanging on that Allah can give us a miracle here. Anyone has seen a miracle as such happen? I think the fact that i am older than him also plays a huge part in their objection since it may not be so easy for me to conceive now. I need a glimmer of hope. So desperate that this is the first time i am actually posting on any forum for support.

  14. Social norms in Turkey

    Hi, I am a guy from Egypt, Muslim and moderately religious (Pray, fast,etc...) considering marrying a Turkish girl. the problem is that i do not know are women in Turkey religious or just Muslims by birth? i am asking on average do people pray, fast in Ramadan? is it normal to have sexual relationships before marriage? P.S 1: this does not mean i do not respect all people it is just that i believe this is essential for me for compatibility. P.S 2: I know there is always all kind of people, i am speaking about the average and majority.

  18. Hello I am worried about my cousin who has been with her kurdish Turkish husband for five year married one year. They have a three yr old daughter. Basically she has been living between England and Turkey for the last three years and has never meet his family other then two of his twelve brothers. Her husband has gone back home to his village for winter and has started to change. Before he was very much like her didn't follow the religion, prey etc but now he has gone home and plans on staying there he has started praying four times a day, grown a beard and insisting on my cousin and her daughter moving to this village with his family. We are all worried for her as he wants her to be a proper Muslim wife and we don't know what this entails? Will we be able to see her, talk to her etc? She is also scared and worried that she won't be able to come back or they will keep her daughter! She asked how were they going to live etc and he said "Allah will provide" as you can see we are all concerned. Have you any advice?
  19. Renewing passport - residence visas

    Hi everyone, I'm a little bit confused about passports and residence visas and wondered if anyone had gone through the process and could help me.I'm getting married in March so will be entering Turkey with my passport in my maiden name. I will then be applying for a residence visa in my maiden name.When my passport expires I want to also change my name into my married name. I can renew my passport from Turkey and send all the docs to the UK and I understand what I need to do for that. What I was wondering is how I will then change my residence visa into my married name as they require a copy of my passport with my last visa entry stamp and I won't have that as I'll have a new passport with no stamps in it. Anyone gone through this process?Sorry for the long post

  21. Marriage / Divorce /Visa

    Hello everyone, Where do I start :-( . I have to come to everyone on here as I really am at the end of my tether just don't know what to do. Shortened Story ...... Been with my boyfriend since October last year, friends first then became more ...was never meant to be anything other than fun but then we both developed feelings. I had known he was in an arranged marriage and it hadn't been working. Since then I have seen him nearly every month from anything between 4 days and 3 weeks at a time ( I have a very good boss - my dad) . We really have not had it easy and to be honest been to hell and back but Im not a silly little girl with a crush and there just 2 years between us, he has never asked me to buy him anything always paid his own way he has bought me meals I have bought him always paid for his own flights within turkey etc, He has joked if he had met me a few years ago that I would be paying for everything. He has said as he wants us to be together properly he really cant accept any sort of gift from me. I know in this world you have to fight for what you want but my fight is a little lost to be honest. He applied for general visa for genuine 2 weeks holiday at Christmas he has to return home for his little boy and his family business I feel if we had lied we would have gotten it. He wanted to come to the UK to then decide what our next steps are. I have a little free advice off a solicitor (not specialist) they have advised the only way he will get here now is on a marriage Visa ?? :-( I can really understand why people would do this now.) is this the case or could anyone suggest anything else?? Its been a massive thing for him to tell his parents about me as you can guess its not gone down well at all but they also know how unhappy he is and they have told him he still has to support his kids and make sure his wife is looked after, which I have to accept never would I expect him to turn his back on them. ( even in England by the time you get to 32 there not many people who don't have kids) . He has said he wants a nikah marriage as then his parents will then realise he is serious, but this is only a religious ceremony not a legal one. None of this has gone down well with my parents at all neither ! He has said he is going to file for a legal divorce and should be straight forward as his wife is not happy neither. I could just up and move there , but I don't want to be stupid I am part of a family business here, and we are not married in any sense so his family wouldn't approve and the divorce is not processed and I know things take time. It is causing so many arguments here because im grumpy , my boyfriend is grumpy so we been at each other. Please please please has anyone got any ideas , pointers , direction. Many Thanks

  24. Hi everyone, This is my first post here, I thought I'd share my story as I've been reading lots of posts from yourselves! So my boyfriend is Turkish, I'm 23 and he's 27. We met 7 years ago and we've kept in touch all these years talking online, skype, writing letters etc, but I only seen him again in May this year and then I went back in September and October to see him. In September I met his cousin who he is really close with, his brother, his friends and his work colleagues. We spent the entire week together and became really close. We talked everyday on skype and then I went back to see him in October. It was the Sacrifice Feast when I was there so he took me to his aunt and uncles home where we were joined by his cousin, her husband, their baby and his brother. I'll admit I felt quite uncomfortable because at that point I couldn't speak a word of Turkish, and only my boyfriend can speak English. They did make me feel very welcome though. Also that week, his cousin invited me to her family home for a meal...all the men were in the sitting room watching TV and I had to go in the kitchen to help prepare the meal with his cousin and aunty. We spent the entire day and evening at their home and I was made to feel so welcome. He wanted to take me to meet his parents that week but I said I didn't feel ready. I'm going back in May and he wants me to meet them then. He said we'll goto their village and spent the night in their home. So where do I even start?! Will we need to sleep in seperate rooms? How do I behave with my boyfriend? How do I greet his parents? Do I take them a gift? I have so many questions! The first thing I've done is sign up for Turkish language course so atleast we'll be able to communicate (I hope! :-) ). As I said earlier, when we were together we had such a nice time, we're very much in love, his family and friends have said I've changed him and it's nice to see him so happy and loved up, and we talk on skype every single day and as sad as it sounds we leave skype on whilst we sleep so we can wake up to each other in the mornings He took me to meet as many of his friends as possible and he seemed so proud, and he was so affectionate to me. Anyway, he's always doing little surprises for me, and last week he said the biggest surprise will be when we're together and that it'll be the best moment of my life that I'll never forget......what are people thinking? Only one thing came to my mind!! Any comments/advice/tips would be appreciated!! xxx
