Women in Eastern Turkie cannot marry men they want.

According to a survey among 1401 women in eastern and souther-eastern Turkie by KAMER (Women association center) there are some interesting (or shocking) results:

  • 43% is forced to marry before they are under 18, of those 74% are married according to the agreement between the families and 6.6% unwilingly forced to marry.
  • 24.6% those who are married between 13-15 years of age
  • 22.1% those who are married between 16-17 years of age
  •   1.2% those who are married under 12

 I would have to agree with you.  It´s very sad but not really shocking anymore.

What´s even sadder is that Alameda will jump in this thread in a moment and praise the benefits of arranged marriages. Apparently some people find these poor girls´ fate a blessing {#emotions_dlg.puking}

OK. What kind of facts would you consider to be shocking for example?

Then I´ll be shocked and congratulate her on her change of mind!

Oh, it is shocking news, it´s just that it´s hard to be shocked every time you hear some obvious truths. It´s not the quality of the news but rather our level of getting accustomed to hearing it that´s changing. Still, we´re far from being indifferent

 You know it´s really annoying to have you attribute ideas and thoughts to me when you have absolutely no idea how I feel about things. Where did I EVER say I approved of forced marriages???????

Unfortunately si++ we just hear a lot about this.  It seems more like a sad reality than a shocking truth.  It just doesn´t seem to be getting better for many, many women in the world.

I think the right question on that issue is; Why doesn´t BDP take the initiative for the solution of these kind of real problems in the region?

They might be so much focused on thier role, that is written outside of the Eur-Asia.
