    Intercultural  marriages

     

    I would guess that intercultural  marriages might be romantic but hard to maintain for a big time.

     

    My wife and I have the same culture, since we're both Japanese.
    However, it took a long time to get used to each other's daily habits. 
    We quarreled about trifles, for example, the way of folding clothes
    seasoning, and  other things  I don't remember as they were so trivial.

     

    Now I understand I needed more tolerance for the differences between us.
    Back to the  inter- cultural   marriages, it must require much more tolerance for both.

     

    One of my wife's friends married an Iranian.   It seemed she struggled to
    cook for her husband, who is Muslim.

    On the other hand, I imagine she could expand her world view through the life with her Iranian husband.

     

    I personally expected that my wife's brother's son would have an intercultural marriage

    because he studied at a college in the US.
    But he will get married to a Japanese woman this autumn.

    I don't think there's any difference between intercultural marriages,
    and marriages between people of the same culture. I think the success of a marriage depends on the couple.

     

    Every kind of marriage must be difficult ,because it involves two people with different thoughts,expectations,and habits living together. They'll have to learn how to compromise, sacrifice, and help each other through difficult situations.

     

    Of course an intercultural marriage may seem to be more challenging to some people, because it will involve more difficulty communicating and a wider gap between families. But for people who are curious about cultural differences, and actually have an interest in experiencing new things, it will become more satisfying and rewarding.

     

    People who like things just a certain way, should marry someone of a similar culture and background. But if you're open-minded and accepting of unusual experiences, an intercultural marriage will be better.
