i know alot of people, mainly from the larger cities, some of my friends in istanbul are divorced, have kids, married again and have got more kids........

i think as times are changing, its becoming more common! but i cant see this happening in small towns or villages, i still know people in villages having arranged marriages and marrying their cousins???

bttgab, didn't mean that with her/his question

The question is can they live together,without being married and have kids,and people accepting them easly like in Europe ?

She/he, didn't mean they got married then got divorced,there is no marriage to start with

Right bttgab ?

Zannitim, it is a Big NO,it cann't happened there

I think that "marriage" here can be misleading...
"Legal marriage" is different than the "religious marriage". There are people in Turkey (also many famous people) who are not legally married, but only make a religious marriage (Which is not legally accepted). Most of the society accepts this kind of relation.

"Living together" : It is not uncommon in big cities, People generally raise eyebrow , and many families prefer their children to be "married".

So, it is about the families, friends and neighborhood.

İt has nothing to do with strict muslim father or not strict,it is Haram in İslam to do so,forbidden

Equal to killing and stealing in Christian religion
Ofcourse those are forbidden too in İslam
