Abstract

The Dresden and Vatican munuscripts of Dede Korkut were based on this study; the Turkmen Saharan munuscript were not included in the study as the concept of family did not mention. As is known, family is the core structure of a society. Society is based on the family, it is formed. Therefore, the culture of that society is better understood when domestic relations are revealed. Moving from these ideas, we examined the family structure of nomad Oguz Turks in these epics. So we tried to see how the warm relations between family members and individuals of Oghuz Turks reflected on the Oghuz society. We also examined how much family structure and interpersonal relationships are reflected in today's family structure and interpersonal relationships. The first determination to be made here is that there is a living and warm family structure in the Oghuz. It was also observed that individuals in this family structure were never violent to each other and were fond of each other. In this case, Domestic relationships in Dede Korkut Oghuznames can be seen as a role model for modern family type.
