Well,for me marriage is something that is so sacred and we have to marry a person whom we really love.You can marry another person with a different nationality but you should be mutually in love with each other.Well,good luck.I hope you meet someone you really like.

call me naive but i would marry someone because i love him and im in love with them. marrying a foreigner because i want to try something new, is not a good reason for me. but if you are ready for the relationship and you think you could work on it, go for it. I have nothing against marrying foreigners. It's marrying without that love that i'm against. :)

My sentiments exactly. Marriage, be it with a local or a foreigner, isn't something that you will just try to see. It's a lifetime commitment and it's never easy. No marriage is ever easy. Just think, if married couple from the same country sometimes ended up divorced, separated, annulled, or just having some marital problems, what more if the couple are from 2 different countries? If a couple from the same country also have problems in understanding one another, how much more if the couple's from 2 different countries, with two different languages? It's never easy, trust me, because I am married to a foreigner. Despite the fact that my husband have the patience of a hundred men because I admit I have a really bad temper at times, he's still the very picture of the doting and loving husband. And despite that, we still have lots of problems. Oh sure, we also have lots of good times but all of these are not without working hard from both our ends to make the marriage work. I'm actually newly-wed, so I'm still adjusting despite the fact that we've been courting and dating for years. In my opinion, like Irglara's is to marry for love, and not because you're tired of the men in your country. Just because you married a foreigner doesn't mean they are different from the men you know. Men are men. There's the good, the bad, the ugly, they come in all shapes and sizes. I do wish you good luck in your dreams, but please think a lot of times before you marry someone, anyone, be it a local or a foreigner.

Yes! If she can speak my language, is a joy to behold and can pay my way, the 'relationship' stuff will work itself out!

There is no boundary for relationships in life for sure. But when you are choosing your life partner who is living in different country, there are many issues which has to be addressed in the setting up of this bonding for life. First of all, you might have to take a decision to leave your country or opposite person might have to be away from his/her country which is not at all easy as you think. Secondly leaving out your old parents, relations who are close to your heart and moving away far away from them is definitely a tough ask for sure as everybody cannot take this much of pressure along with them

I do not consider a life partner like trying out new clothes but I understand what you are going through. I hope that your choice will be one which is measured with every known objectivity, wisdom and emotion intelligence. Not generalizing, good men and more a life partner is very difficult to come by even out of country. Like a good pair of shoes, it does not only need to fit but a comfort fit right to every detail of your feet. So you will need to try out the brands be it Ferragamo, Christian Louboutin or Jimmy Choo but unlike shoes you will need to go through the paces and pace yourself.

I have friends who did marry foreigners and they seem happy. I've had the same notion when I was younger..I'd marry a foreign man as I was so sick and tired of my fellow national's attitude towards marital life. I never wanted to have the same fate as what I commonly observe within my locality. But then as I matured, my perspectives in life changed and I realized it would be more than scary to be married to someone whom I don't know the culture background so the differences would be a lot to take in for me.

For me, no. It is OK to marry a foreigner since you can have a brand new vision and way of thinking. Try new things is good for you. But marry a foreigner should be bold enough. I do not know if you have learned a little bit about their language(it couldn't be better you speak the same language), culture, customs, way of thinking and behave, etc. If you have already taken all these into account, then best wishes to both of you.
