The OP's gf is in a Muslim country. Your experiences are heartening and I'm glad you're here, but it is 100% a different culture.
Sorry I miss that information but not all Muslim nations are the same and my family once had a couple of marry doctors one was Jewish and the other Muslim an they would travel back and forth to the lady Muslim country. Sorry it been too many years for me to remember the nation name off hand.
Off hand I think Turkey does not enforce religion laws for the most part.
