Families of Turkmenistan



If you ask any woman about how she imagines a full-fledged family, what she sees in family life, then regardless of age, nationality and place of residence, each woman can give approximately the same answer. Everyone needs a family in which love, friendship, mutual understanding and trust will reign.

Everyone needs a strong and friendly family. Between spouses there must be complete mutual understanding. The same applies to children who must honor their parents and love.


However, it is not always assured that relations in the family can be ideal, and not always women get what they would like to see in their family. Much depends on the spouses themselves, who sometimes can not find a common language. In the modern world, young people are sometimes too in a hurry to make such serious decisions as marriage and the creation of a serious relationship.

Turkmenistan can be attributed to the country where the family and marriage are treated differently than in many other countries in Asia, when marriage is just an agreement between the parents of two young people. Such a marriage can be called a marriage of convenience, although most often there is simply an agreement between the two parties to marry children and to become related to two old and respected families.

In this case, no one cares about what awaits a young family after such a marriage. The fact that there will be feelings, you can not even say. It’s just a forced existence with each other, when the spouses just live together and raise children, and this will be the whole life.

Turkmenistan takes great care of the feelings of young people who decide to take such a serious step as creating a family. Until recently, parents themselves decided the fate of children and selected a couple for their son or for their daughter alone.

However, at present this happens very rarely, and young people have enough freedom of choice in order to find their second half with which they could live happily ever after. However, before deciding to marry, young people listen to the wise advice of their parents, who decide whether young people can live together or are too early to think about serious matters.

Today’s marriages in Turkmenistan are already more thoughtful, because before marriage, a man and women for some time try to create for themselves a prosperous material base that will create a full-fledged family and quickly put it on its feet.

This is especially true of men, because it is they who are the main burden of cares for the family and children. He will need to support the whole family, his wife and his children, who should not need anything.

Turkmenistan is famous for its interesting and numerous traditions and customs that accompany all the holidays and more or less significant events in the life of each person. Especially weddings are filled with various rituals, which must be observed in order for the young family to be happy and prosperous. Weddings in Turkmenistan are conducted in much the same way as in most countries of the world.

First occurs matchmaking, when the groom’s relatives go with presents to the bride’s house and ask for the girl’s hands. For such purposes, the most respected and oldest people in the groom’s family are selected who can negotiate the best possible. After the consent of the parents of the bride is obtained, the question of which day the wedding ceremony will be held is decided.

However, until the wedding ceremony, after the matchmaking leave a lot of time, because both the bride and the groom still arrange holidays for their friends, on which they say goodbye to their bachelor life.

The bride in Turkmenistan invites all her friends who come to the feast with refreshments. Girls sing a lot, dance and try to cheer the bride, who soon must leave her parents’ house. The house in which she grew up, and in which all her childhood passed. Young people also have fun in the groom’s house.

In addition to these parties, before the wedding in Turkmenistan, there is also an engagement day at which various games and contests are arranged for young people, in which each of them should show his skills and abilities.

Of course, the wedding day is filled with an incredible number of different rituals, each of which has its special significance for both young, separately for the bride and groom, for their home and for their future children.

The groom’s parents, before the wedding, must think about where their son will lead his young wife. As a result, the issue of housing is very acute. In Turkmenistan, always on the part of the groom, the question was solved, so that young spouses could leave immediately to their new separate house and start their new life.

Because of this, many parents can not allow their sons to marry until they can provide for him and his family sufficient living conditions.

As for the bride’s parents, their responsibility is to make a large and very expensive gift for a young family, this can be either a large sum of money, or furniture in a new home or jewelry. In addition, the bride and groom themselves are obliged to make each other expensive gifts, which also take a lot of money. Do not forget about the relatives, each of whom is required to give gifts and not to offend.

Thus, in Turkmenistan, a wedding is a very impressive event that requires a lot of financial expenses, but in this case, parents never stint on gifts and comfort for their children, who then can live happily.

Because of this, it’s long before the time when a son or daughter decides to enter into a legal marriage and create their own family, to start a good wedding in Turkmenistan.


Time is enough to collect a good, rich dowry and to prepare funds for the wedding and to buy gifts to all the numerous relatives, parents and the young ones themselves.
