A READER’S Letter states: “I am hoping that you can help me with one of the Turkish marriage laws.

It came to my attention when I was reading 'additional marriage laws' that one of them said, 'Sickness: Certain medical conditions, e.g., epilepsy, also constitute a bar to marriage.' I have had epilepsy for many, many years, caused by a road traffic accident, but it is only minor epilepsy and is controlled by a low dose of tablets, so I have had no sign of epilepsy for 15 years. Will this prevent my being able to marry in Turkey to my Turkish partner, and could you also tell me the reason why epilepsy would have anything to do with getting married?”
