Marriage: Since the adoption of the Republican Civil code in 1926, based of the Swiss Civil Code, Turkish males can marry only one woman at a time. It is forbidden by law in Turkey to marry before the age of 15 in the case of females and 17 in the case of males. Early marriages are more frequent in the rural areas than in the cities, where the education, military service, acquiring a profession and other factors tend to delay marriages. In rural areas, marriages are generally in line with the wishes or approval of the families involved whereas in cities it is generally the couple themselves that make the decision to marry.

I just want to thank you and your staff for the great time we had in that 3-days tour, around Cappadocia. Wonderful places, nice weather and people.
We will keep a very nice memory of that trip. Also the tourist guides driving us visiting places were well prepared and helpful to give us any details of those places.
(only one little drawback: no tourist guide in the half-day we spent in Ankara, but ok it is not a big issue)
So, thanks again for your support.
