A Muslim couple often do not recite vows; their attendance at the wedding is sufficient to attest their commitment to one another. But when vows are spoken, here are the traditional words used in Turkey.

We are grateful to Mrs T B of Kuşadası for sending these words to us. She also kindly sent the English translation shown.


  • Vows of the Groom

    Officiant:

    Kimsenin etkisi veya baskısı olmadan kendi serbest iradenizle eş olarak kabul ediyor musunuz?
    Without any pressure or influence and with your free will, do you accept her as your wife?

    Groom:

    Evet. Yes.
  • Vows of the Bride

    Officiant:

    Kimsenin etkisi veya baskısı olmadan kendi serbest iradenizle eş olarak kabul ediyor musunuz?
    Without any pressure or influence and with your free will, do you accept him as your husband?

    Bride:

    Evet. Yes.
