CONVERSATION STARTER: Do you think it’s good to marry someone from a different culture?



I was going to say another ‘nationality’ but that is too easy. Another culture is really something else. I think marrying outside your culture can be really interesting for the two parties involved, but I think both have to make sure that they don’t force the other too much into their culture. Because you are now married, you are now your own new family, so that in itself means you need to give fairly to each side. And if you have children even more so.

What do you think?

Do you think society should encourage people to marry from a different culture?

  1. well it is something interesting and this is for those people who are looking for challenge ….come on it’s boring to marry someone who has the same culture without mentioning the interest …

    • I agree, if you are into something different, then this may be the perfect lifestyle change! Plus of course if you have some love thrown in with it, it would be always interesting….

  2. I think it comes with its shares of shock that each party needs to be prepared for mentally. It won’t be easy but life is boring without any challenges. I wouldn’t say recommend or encourage but I would say to go with the flow. If that’s what came your way, you will be in for an eye opening experience.

  3. I don’t know that society should encourage it but I do feel like society should be more accepting of it. We have issues that arise that other families never consider, but we also have joys that the so called boring families will never experience. I think anyone who is considering combining two cultures inside one household should make sure they aren’t going in blindly.

    • I totally agree. It certainly makes your life far more interesting. I think it is important to look at the relationship itself, and make sure you have the same values and expectations in the relationship, the rest can be worked on.

  4. If you ask me, the society should open their eyes and heart to this..not really encourage everyone to marry someone from a different culture. 🙂 Great post! 🙂
