Recently, Marash Girl posted an article on ges-ges Armenians in Aintab. Strange, though, because as Marash Girl remembers it, she asked her father many years ago, "What would happen in Marash if an Armenian woman fell in love with a Turkish man and married him? . . . . What would happen in Marash if an Armenian man fell in love with a Turkish woman and married her?" His answer without pause: "They would be murdered on their wedding night in their wedding bed." Her question: "By whom?" His answer: "By either the Turks or the Armenians or both."
Whether this was a fact (as Marash Girl's dad came to this country when he was nine years old) or general knowledge, Marash Girl does not know. What she does know is that her dad was very clear, very certain of his answer.
