Summary/Abstract: One of the striking differences in family formation behaviour between Turkish and Western European cultures is in the role of family influence in the processes of partner choice and union formation. Family involvement has an impact on partner choice, as well as on other aspects of union formation, such as the type of union and the age at first union formation. Family involvement frequently occurs in Turkey and in other countries with a long Muslim tradition, and it remains important among emigrants and their descendants from these countries (de Valk & Liefbroer, 2007; Milewski & Hamel, 2010; Huschek et al., 2012; Baykara-Krumme, 2014; van Zantvliet et al., 2014; Topgül, 2015).
