    Default Why Turkish men marry foreign women.

    This was a subject of debate whilst I was in Turkey.

    Together with my friends we put together a list of possible reasons that Turkish men

    1: Foreign women look "special" compared to the usual Turkish women.

    2: Foreign wives usually go to live in Turkey alone and don't bring along the Turkish womans "Family baggage" especially the ever famous Turkish inlaws...

    3: Foreign women are easier to "trick" that Turkish women in regards to cultural things, for example a modern educated Turkish woman would not wear the red ribbon around her waist when getting married. This ribbon symbolises virginity. It is a VERY village tradition. However a foreign wife would wear it, thinking its "traditional"

    4: Turkish men due to the language barrier can't expose what idiots they can be, since they cannot express themselves clearly enough or their wives Turkish won't be enough to figure out that their husbands are really a complete idiots.

    5: Turkish men like to feel they have "tamed" a wild foreign woman, possibly due to the "Ottoman Harems" cultural teachings, they feel the need to conquer and control non Turks/Muslims.

    6: Turkish men are usually possessive and jealous of their partners, foreign women seem to enjoy this "attention" they feed each others insecurities.

    These are the ones we came up with.

    Apparently one of my Pakistani friends cousins is married to a Turkish man. She said the Pakistani side disapproved of it more because of how "ethnocentric" they were and the Turkish side was more accepting.

    That's just one case though. I haven't met enough Turkish Americans to make any conclusions.

    I don't think the number of them who do it is something worth talking about.

    Marrying one would let you avoid getting to know all her relatives and visiting grand-grand-pa or listening to some of her cousin's "wisdom". Well, that's one of the primary reasons for a Georgian.

    In 2011 there were 200,000 Turks married to "foreigners" these don't include the foreigners that have Turkish National status, which I am sure would bump that figure up.
    I think it is a subject worth discussing since it seems to be part of the Turkish male history to want to marry non Turkish women.
