I don’t know what’s going to happen if we decide to get married, because religion WILL come up.While we’re both fine with a civil ceremony (as are our parents), the reception may be an issue.Loving and appreciating someone of another culture does not mean that you love and/or appreciate your own culture any less. I didn’t get anything great either, but I did get more than I expected.
What I really don’t like is when people go on and on about how interracial/interfaith relationships don’t work out because of cultural differences.
As I said in an earlier post, cultural differences can often be greater in an INTRAracial relationship! He didn’t even know all that much about Chinese culture when we first started to go out (he still doesn’t, but I don’t know much either, to be perfectly honest).
Why is it that certain interracial pairings are stared more often than others?
