I have a friend who is dating a Turkish man she met online, but they have been dating for 6 months. In July she is flying to Istanbul to visit him. I know a bit about Turkey, but she is worried about their customs, and the fact that she is a Christian and he is Muslim. Does anyone have any advice?

yes, a Turk`s marrying an American is unacceptable. I hope this answers your lame question.

Well then please logically explain to me why. I don´t think I would take such advice from such a narrow-minded person.

There are plenty of successful and similar (different countries and religious background) marriage situations with users on this site.

There are also probably many more failed relationships, but couples shouldn´t rush marriage until many aspects are considered.

I personally think that if they find they have enough in common to consider marriage, and their respective families support them, then they are off to a good start.

One of the biggest issues they will eventually face will be where they will live. Who will compromise to move away from their network of friends and relations?

Good luck to your friend, internet relationships are always interesting when they get to the next level of real contact.

so am I narrow minded? at least I don`t ask silly questions and I don`t have friends who are deseperate enough to find their future husbands online.

She stays up til 4 am to talk to him while hes at work, and apparently they have much in common. But their families do not know about the relationship. She is very happy, and she wishes so bad to move there with him. His family is very modern, and they live in Istanbul. He is all she talks about, and as long as she is happy thats all I care as her best friend. But at the same time I do want to be able to give her adequate advice on what to expect.

Suggest to your friend that she enrols in a Turkish language course in Istanbul whilst there. They need to be able to communicate well, and she will need to improve her Turkish if she hasn´t a Turkish speaking background.

not all people that searching there future partner online are desperate, maybe thats the only way to find each other...  coz you nver knew who  is the right one for you...  religion or different culture is not the bases coz  even though, they have diff. beliefs as long as you love each other and you respect one another nothing is imposible... thats  the love means{#lang_emotions_rolleyes}
