Does the cultural difference scare you? Does it interest you more?

It's funny that you should bring this up. I am from the United States and married to a Japanese man. I just published an article on Associated Content entitled, "The Challenges Facing a Multi-Cultural Marriage." You can see it at http://www.associatedcontent/article/717367/the_challenges_facing_a_multicultural.html Perhaps you could read it and let me know what you think?

Well. The link wasn't working and I just figured it out. I left of the .com. The link should read: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/717367/the_challenges_facing_a_multicultural.html Sorry about that!

Scare me? Nope. Interest me? Maybe. It takes more than the races to mix, you know. Besides, with the world shrinking nowadays, many countries actually harbor mixed bloods rather than pure ones. With that in mind, I don't think anyone should be afraid. If anything, I think it will be the cultural differences that will make the relationship difficult. But as to the racial differences, well, I doubt that it would affect anything. :)

if you truly love someone then language, culture, race, religion or any other matters, should not be an issue or barrier. But when in an inter-cultural or inter-racial relationship, the couple must know that they might face problems or that there are people who wouldn't approve of their relationship. they have to work together and stand by each other to try to overcome the problem. if they love each other, then they would not mind the obstacles that they have to go thru. but if only one of them is willing to preserve the relationship, then it could be difficult. i don't have anything against inter-cultural/racial relationship, in fact i admire those who are in that kind of relationship, and how their strength, courage and love for each other made their relationship possible.
