I’ve been with my husband for almost three years; we are finding things we need to compromise on. But there is a understanding no matter how much we study each other’s languages, we will never be an integral part of each other’s families.
He will never catch all the sarcastic jokes my sister whispers under her breath; I will never be able to reply quickly enough to his father’s drunken ramblings.
I wondered where it went wrong – but the answer was pretty obvious to everyone involved.
If you do not respect and appreciate your partners culture (to the extent you are willing to forsake elements of your own culture for their benefit), intercultural and interracial relationships are nearly impossible.
Unfortunately, racism is still alive, all over the world. I wrote a piece about this that went viral, “dear world, saying my husband is ‘attractive for an Asian guy’ isn’t a compliment, it’s actually kind of racist.” No one seems to like the people their friend’s choose to date.
If you’re ‘lucky’ no one will come up to you in the street and ask “why are you dating him? The closer the friend, the more you tend to dislike their choice of a partner.
My relationship (like any relationship) is a compromise between the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Being in love is one of the best feelings in the world.
