I think this man is trying to say that foreign women are much more "low maintenance" than Turkish women - they tend to be more independant and responsible for themselves in every way, including financial. Turkish women(I think he is saying) want to rebel against the strictures of Turkish life, while maintaining the traditional obligations of a husband toward his wife - the best , most modern house with every convenience, the best and most expensive jewellery etc etc, while they sit at home enjoying it and the poor husband is out earning the money to pay for the loans he has taken out to provide these things. Western women (by and large) tend to have jobs and be amenable to sharing the burdens of life - earning a living, paying utilities and the mortgage etc etc. I could be wrong, but that seems to be what happens from my acquaintence with and observation of certain sectors of Turkish society. Of course he is admitting that Turkish men may try to be controlling of their wives, and may allow a girlfriend more license than a wife - boy is he in for a treat if he has married a western woman - particularly an Irish woman!
