Traditional dating customs
The culture makes a large difference in the type of marriage ceremony and how the bride is courted.Turkish wedding traditions also include some marriages where husband and wife are determined after they are born, and there are some marriages still where a sister-in-law may step in as wife for a sister who is deceased.Similarly, it became unusual for a couple to be wed in May as this was the traditional start of Summer and was marked by a Pagan feast: Bealtane.These beliefs are the origin of the old marriage song:       Marry when the year is new, always loving, kind, and true.      When February birds do mate, you may wed, nor dread your fate.      If you wed when March winds blow, joy and sorrow both you'll know.Turkish wedding customs still follow some of the customary Muslim practices.Talking to Turkish men if the woman is also Turkish and neither of them are Westernized does not involve dating.
When marrying with a Turkish man, the region plays a part in the type of marriage ceremony to be expected, the religion itself and intensity of belief in the religion the Turkish husband subscribes to is also very important in determining the type of wedding to be held.
The 16th Century Penal Laws prevented Priests from saying Mass never mind conducting the Sacrament of Marriage. The last of the Penal Laws was not repealed in Ireland until 1920.
Given this background and the unique identity of the native Irish people who were forced to practice their religion 'underground', it is not surprising that an Irish Wedding has a particular identity all of its own and has a number of specific traditions associated with it. In Ireland of centuries ago the most popular day to be married was a Sunday.
Turkish wedding traditions can have guidelines depending upon widows or widowers, the care of a deceased family member’s family by remarriage, and there have been instances in the past of siblings marrying one another, but this no longer happens in today’s society.
Marrying with a Turkish man depends strongly on the culture he is from.
