Husbands rights, to my savings following marriage?

Any advice, please? When I marry my Turkish boyfriend, what rights will he then have to any savings or property that are currently held in my name, either in Turkey or the UK?

(My Mum has heard that under Turkish law, anything I own will automatically become his when we marry, and is worried that I could stand to lose everything at a later date, if things don't work out.)

Thank you.

Re: Husbands rights, to my savings following marriage?

The very first thing you should enquire as to , is the health of his mother , an expensive consideration for many Turkish men ( but not all ) involved with " yabanci " Ladies.

Good luck

Anything that was in your name property, belongings, and money before you marry remains yours. After you marry 50% of everything new i.e. money .....etc will be his.

Thank you.
If you are worried about this, it seems to me you do not trust him 100%.

Cross-cultural marriages do work, many do not. I have a Turkish Missus, after nearly 15 years we still have cultural differences and misunderstanding between my "Yank" attitudes and her Turkish ones. We had both been previously married and were "older" than 50 years of age. If you are a lot younger you will have a great many differences to sort out along with the choices you will want to make about kids, schools, which country to live, bank accounts, families, language, etc.

I suggest you live with or very near him for at least a year before you decide on a legal relationship (marriage). Living together today, in most Turkish cities, is quite common.

Good luck to you.

Re: Husbands rights, to my savings following marriage?

Sorry for the late reply - much appreciate all your replies though, thank you. A 50% share sounds much more reasonable than what my mum was suggesting. BF's mum died when he was a child, so this won't be an issue . . . and we're both in our twenties, and neither of us have any children . . . but there's no question of us living together first, as BF is strict Muslim and neither he, nor his family would consider or approve of this (I'm converting to Islam, so that we can marry, as I feel following my BF's religion is the right thing for me, now). We're very much in love, and I trust him 100%, it's just that my mum doesn't!

I truly wısh you all the happıness ın the world.Just a lıttle word of advıce.
My wıfes frıend was 22 when she marrıed her BF.She asked the same questıons as you.Her famıly were dead agaınst ıt,as was the BF's.Wıthın 6 months of marrage she coverted to Islam,changed her name,was TOLD to be fully covered and pregnant wıth twıns.She was lıke a frıghtened rabbıt when we went round for çay and vısıts.They now have 5 chıldren and she ıs not allowed to vısıt England and her parents are not welcome ın hıs house.
I only tell you thıs as to say be very carefull as to what your soon to be husband and ınlaws want of you.All the very best and Bless you.
PS.
Your soon to be INLAWS wıll have a large influence on your lıfe than you can ımagıne.
