Dating people different cultures
Making families mesh and understand one another when they come from two completely different backgrounds isn't always the easiest thing.
There are many defining moments in inter-cultural relationships that allow you to both appreciate each other's differences... Every country and culture has its own superstitions, sayings and proverbs. From outsiders, from insiders and sometimes from yourselves. And lastly, proudly telling the haters they can leave. Someone will eventually give you the disapproving stink-eye as they walk by the two of you.

Traveling to and discovering new places = the best. Choosing a future wedding destination may actually be the most stressful decision you've ever had to make. But you don't give two hoots about their thoughts on your relationship because you're a team now, a progressive cultural force to be reckoned with, and they (*cough* the haters *cough*) can take their old-school close-mindedness elsewhere, right?For those of you who are already in the cultural thick of it (so to speak), you probably know these moments all too well. Learning how to express love (and other stuff) in different languages. Receiving compliments and predictions on how cute your kids will be. You visit each other's respective home countries/towns and are pleasantly introduced to things you never thought you'd see, do, smell, taste and feel. (What place is special enough to both of us but also equidistant for both of our families to travel to? Rooting for two different teams during the Olympics. If you’ve moved to another country, you’ve done the hard part.You can start looking forward to learning a new language and building a new life for yourself, including finding someone to share in this exciting adventure.
