Tell me SULTAN: What do you mean with family ties?

Are family ties based in mutual consent between a man and a woman or the woman has nothing to say? Do you consider man and woman as equal in rights and mind faculties?

Do you consider they should be allowed to have their own properties, to get a job, to ask for the divorce or to use birth control methods? Can a woman be forced to marry?

Can a man marry a nine years old child? What about Mohammed?

Familiy ties are the best thing in life as long as they come from free and mutual consent between adults. Otherwise they are no longer ties, but chains.

I am European and I want to be an American military colony forever. We have never been so rich and so peaceful. And we have lots of common interests. What common interests do we have with Turkey?
