Being Alone, Facebook, and Girls: Home News Turkish Photographer Beats Up Years Old Client After Learning Bride Is 15 by Jack Alexander 33 minutes ago 2 Comments erikacpataki: likeawinterbird: vague-humanoid: anthonybourdainpartsunknown: corrective action be the change you want to see in the world His name is  Onur Albayrak! Here’s the story. Hurriyet Daily News reports that Albayrak had been hired to photograph the July 5th wedding at Turgut Özal Nature Park in the eastern Turkish province of Malatya. On the day of, when he noticed that the bride-to-be didn’t look like an adult, he asked the groom her age and learned that she was only 15. “The groom had come to my studio some two weeks ago and was alone,” Albayrak tells the Daily News. “I saw the bride for the first time at the wedding. She’s a child, and I felt her fear because she was trembling.” Albayrak then reportedly refused to continue as the wedding photographer and attempted to stop the wedding. The argument soon turned physical when the groom attacked him as he was attempting to leave, Albayrak says. The photographer ended up breaking the client’s nose in the fight, according to local reports. Albayrak confirmed the reports in a Facebook post, which has been met with widespread approval, attracting thousands of Likes and hundreds of overwhelmingly positive comments. “I wish this had never happened, but it did,” Albayrak writes. “And if you were to ask me if I’d do the same thing again, I’d say ‘yes.’ Child brides are [victims] of child abuse and no power on earth can make me photograph a child in a wedding gown.” The legal minimum age for marriage in Turkey is 18-years-old for both sexes, and child marriage is punishable by imprisonment for men who marry underage girls. Despite being outlawed, however, child marriage is still prevalent in the country and remains a controversial political issue. [Source] – go read the rest! this guy is a hero. btw - let’s remind ourselves, americans, that unlike turkey, in the US the legal minimum age for marriage is only 18 in two states. in alabama, you can be married as young as fourteen years old if you have “parental permission”. in california, you can get married under 18 if you go to counseling, have a parent with you when you apply for the marriage license, and appear before a judge. in some states, there isn’t even a specific minimum age for marriage. the minimum marriage age for girls in new hampshire is 13 years old. 48 states allow child marriage. child marriage is not an “over there” problem, it happens right here, legally. any one of us might find ourselves called upon to break somebody’s nose if we encounter something like this occurring. we also have a responsibility to support groups and laws trying to end child marriage in this country.

Ali, Being Alone, and Be Like: Sister Ask For A Blessed Marriage. Not For A Grand Wedding. IG - silent_repent Sisters these days spend more time planning their wedding in their head and all they dream or ask for is shopping, matching jwellery with gown, wedding planner, function, party, DJ & parlour packages! So much effort for a single day (wedding) but not enough preparation for the rest of their lives (marriage). . My sisters, marriage is not about dolling yourself up with icing suger or taking photos with glossy pout & seductive postures. Marriage is really not about food, functions, gifts, honeymoon, excitement and romance. . Marriage is about struggle, commitment, acceptance, trust, appreciation, compassion & compatibility. . It's that struggle which Hawa عليه السلام faced together with her husband to win Allah's heart to make their place in Jannah. . It is that appreciation which Hajra عليه السلام showed on Ibrahim عليه السلام decision to leave her alone with the child on Safa & her humble conviction. . Marriage is that compassion which Bibi Rahima (pbuh) had towards Ayyub عليه السلام that everyone abandoned Him but she served Him until He got cured. . Marriage is that trust which Khadiza رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰعنها had on Prophet Muhammad ﷺ when everyone rejected Him. . It is the acceptance that Sawda-bint-Zam'a presented to Rasool ﷺ & His children with her warm heart. . It is that commitment & loyalty which Ayesha رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰعنها had with Rasool ﷺ that She starved with Him for months but never complained for once. She fulfilled her duties as such that she spread Deen of Rasool when He passed out. . It is the compatibility-harmony that Fatima رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰعنها shared with Ali رضي الله عنه inspite of their hardships & sufferings. . Marriage is all about deep sense of duties and responsibilities through which our love reflects from every angle & this is what we learn from our Mothers. . Wallahi, none of our Mothers had a grand wedding, engagement ceremony or a big reception party but they'd blessed marriage bcoz they're successful to be betterhalf of their husbands in true sense. So sisters, be like ur Mother, prepare urself as a woman to be worth marrying & ask Allah for a blessed Marriage not for a romantic fantasy. . Pic Credit - @asma.nin silent_repent

Being Alone, College, and Dating: Adam hadn't been on one date with Eve, yet he married her the day he met her. God's process can happen overnight. When we're in his will. opureworldtruth ไม่ An online study found that a majority of married men who responded to this question: "When did you know that you wanted to marry your (now) wife?" had answered "Within the first year". Some answered the second date, a few weeks in, the first month, etc. But nonetheless, the majority of answers were placed in the category of within the first three months to a year. A very few answered the first year or a few years into dating; but the overall consensus was the short span of the first year. _ Ladies: You should not be dating for more than a year or two without the mutual understanding that marriage is in your future together. If you've been dating for 3 years and there's no talk or thought of marriage, this is clearly God saying you two aren't meant to be together. And this is your man showing you that he's not taking you seriously, biblically speaking. _ Men: Adam knew right away. And as found in the study, hundreds of men knew in a short time span. If you plan to just thread the waters with her, or you're not ready to consider marrying her within the first year or two, then you need to figure yourself out and leave her alone, because that's just playing with her. And you're not loving her the way God asked you to. In the study there were few valid reasons why some men weren't ready marry soon due to college, military, tourism etc. but they all had the intention of marrying their woman after. _ We need to be dating with the intention of marriage. The world teaches us to date in order to thread the waters, figure things out, and-or just to have sexual pleasures, but God never told us to do that. I hope everyone here who is looking for that special someone has the intention of marriage in their future. _ The Bible says, 📖“He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.”📖 - Proverbs 18:22 (ESV). _ Notice God said, “He who finds a wife” not “He who finds a woman or girlfriend”. _ Remember to live in His will. _ Video source: https:-youtu.be-Z8PFKI20TlY
