Example text

Some of the receiving female partners had a strong preference to lead their married life in Germany. Therefore contracting the marriage was postponed until the result of the language exam was obtained and it was clear that the prospective husband could actually immigrate. Both male and female receiving partners generally supported their partners’ efforts to learn German emotionally, but only the males also financed the period during the language course in Turkey for their wives. The pre-migration period in general and the time of the language course and the subsequent exam in particular were perceived to be difficult for all parties involved.

An individual’s closest circle, including his or her family, relatives and friends, may withdraw their emotional and/or financial support or cease their contact if they do not approve of an individual’s choice. In all ages and in almost every society, families have played a decisive role in the marriage projects of their children, and even more so when those unions involve family interests and capital (Bourdieu 1980). Thus, among the third parties, ways in which family might influence the marriage behaviour of individuals are more often discussed, especially in the context of international migration.

Some of the males, whose living conditions and income level were already good or very good for Turkish standards, worried that a move to Germany would be accompanied by social and economic downward mobility. Therefore they were – probably realistically – concerned that they would not be able to preserve their professional status and would have to accept cuts in their relative income level. Other males, in contrast, were not worried so much about losing their job but rather were unsatisfied with their economic situation anyway.
