Married segments are unfortunately rather common in the industry. You will soon run out of "full service" airlines if you avoid every single one that does married segments.

Is it also a scam that airlines sell AAA-BBB-AAA for twice the price of BBB-AAA-BBB? No, that's just how airline pricing works.

The strange part is that normally married segments come up because connecting flights are usually less attractive than direct flights. But in the case of TK it looks like origin/destination IST are the seats TK are struggling to sell.
