Abstract

This study is focused on the life experiences of early married women on private and public space post early marriage. In this study, it has been tried to explore the grounded knowledge lying behind the life experiences of women post early marriage by conducting face-to-face in-depth semi-structured interviews with early married women. Thus, the study has been created and conducted on qualitative basis. In general, the results of the study indicate that the patriarchal order in which early married women living, reproduces early marriages and that women are exposed to a limited and passive life cycle. This cyclical process is based on a series of unequal patriarchal relations, starting at private space where the foundations of patriarchal values are laid, and involving public space. This can be interpreted as the early married women being trapped in a man-dependent life in poverty and lack of education. Thus, within the scope of this study it has been concluded that early marriages maintain their existence in a cultural climate where the patriarchal ideology prevails.
