Thats not the case though. Interfaith marriage is allowed in Turkey...here it is there is no such ban on Christian men marrying Muslim women in Turkey...that type of inhumane law applies in Israel and Saudi which are also US allies.

Only civil marriage is legal in Turkey.

Child Marriage in Turkey....certainly that is impossible...Ataturk Turks would riot in the streets if that was the case.

Furthermore Eddie Rar it is of course a crime in Turkey for a adult to have sex with one under the age of 18,


What is the Turkey Age of Consent?

The Age of Consent in Turkey is 18 years old. The age of consent is the minimum age at which an individual is considered legally old enough to consent to participation in sexual activity. Individuals aged 17 or younger in Turkey are not legally able to consent to sexual activity, and such activity may result in prosecution for statutory rape or the equivalent local law.

Turkey statutory rape law is violated when an individual has consensual sexual contact with a person under age 18. Sexual congress with minors 15-17 can only be persecuted upon complaint.


https://www.ageofconsent.net/world/turkey


Again in Turkey the Hijab is almost nowhere to be found. Not all Muslim majority countries have the laws of the US ally Saudi Arabia. Look at this,



That is from Turkey^ Men and women can dress how they want in Turkey.. Those admirable Turks above serve as a counter to the truly ugly faces of the world which do not pay any attention to the good minorities...at least from our perspectives I assume your white and Christian so when I see Muslims in Muslim majority countries and Jews in Israel dressing how they want I will praise that.... Its these types of hardcore facts that prove to me that not all Jews and Muslims are bad people.....how non beneficial it would be to never talk about the very types of Jews and Muslims who support our views which support interfaith dating and marriage. And certainly I will call out the press restrictions in Israel , Saudi Arabia and Turkey...and Id hope you would praise Turkey for allowing civil marriage... Civil marriage does not care about the religion of the man and women to get married..Israel and Saudi Arabia do not have civil marriage and Turkey does.

Waste not, want not

- In January 1993, Turkish TV reports gave graphic accounts of Turkish soldiers raping dead female guerrillas. The Turk-ish President excused this by saying that the soldiers were just "22-or 23-year-old guys who can't control themselves".

- The now-banned weekly magazine 'Gercek' reported a verbatim confession by a Turkish soldier in its August 13, 1993 edition: "Say a woman guerrilla dies in a raid. She is lying there, her body still warm. You understand? Now, the soldier hasn't had a woman in a long time. He see his chance. The soldier makes use of this opportunity. Then he does it."

Permanent decree of state of emergency; thousands of academics fired; tens of thousands of teachers fired; independent press hindered; referendum to achieve a more autocratic presidency; the state deciding evolution not to be taught at high schools. Ataturk isn't much of a favorite of Erdogan it seems.

The state of Turkey is less free and democratic than it used to be, and it's continuing going downhill. Swell to have interfaith marriage, but there's a lot more to a decent democracy than that.

Appears to be heading for a pre young Turks old Ottoman Empire state. Not that the young Turks were particularly pleasant specimens - some of what they did in WW1 would have got them hanged as war criminals if they'd been doing it in WW2.
