Turkish fatwa: Calling wife ‘mom’ or ‘sister’ means instant marriage annulment

Turkish women be warned: if you remind your husband too much of his mother, your marriage could be in grave danger.

A fatwa issued by Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet) has declared that any husband who tells his wife that he sees her as a sister or mother has effectively annulled their marriage.

    Western feminists are fine with all this. IT’s WHITE MEN THAT ARE THE PROBLEM!

    I’m pretty sure my wife wouldn’t be happy if I said I saw her as a sister or mother. if I said it more than once I might be heading for a divorce myself.

      Given how bitchy my sister and mom are, I’m sure telling my wife she’s just like them would be a lie and a quick way to end up sleeping on the couch.

      I do often tell my wife I’m thankful she is sane and not like my mom.

      If course they say men marry women like their moms…. and my 1st wife had even more issues than my mother. So I learned from that mistake.

    What about cousin? Can he call her cousin? Because she probably is.

    Make your wife into your mother, watch it kill your sex lives.

      Not for some males (ref. Oedipus).

      Supposedly there is nothing worse than a Saudi Princess.
      Some level of depraved indifference that is kicked up to 11.

    Turkey was supposed to be an example of a more advanced Islamic country. It likely never was but to the extent it could be perceived that way, it was probably because the generals kept the politicians honest. Now with capriphile Erdogan in charge, they have just “reverted” to their retrograde selves.

    So, if Alberta calls PM super socks “mom”, can we have an instant divorce too?

    I had just watched the bridges movie on DVD twice to catch all the subtle items in it.

    Check out the crimes numbers from the Toronto police and keep telling your self that illegals make Toronto safer and that Diversity is our strength .
    Good luck for Tory having a homicide rate that’s up to 61 with 4 days left in 2017 ….guns crimes are up 200% in 3 years while Toronto is now a sanctuary City.

    Watch for John Tory to reminds us that were are safer than Chicago…that’s the new yardstick as Toronto is now 51% non-white.

    Apparently, Turks are not the sharpest tools in the human shed.
