It’s been discussed a few times that there are very few, if any at all, perspectives from men in intercultural relationships.
Well now there is.
A big welcome to Bideshi Biya.
Here is a bit about him:
“Her distant nephew did end up staying in America after getting married to a cute little caucasian girl with brown eyes and a heart of gold.
“For some reason the phrase “bideshi biya” has stuck in my mind over all these years. I live near the West Coast of the United States with my beautiful wife of almost 10 years (Shreemati on this blog). I have three wonderful daughters: Thuli, Maili and Kanchi (all blog names of course). I have fairly typical middle class American life in the suburbs.
“Shreemati and I have been through a lot over the past 16 years that we’ve known each other. We dated for a few years before finally getting married and as we approach our 10th wedding anniversary I could not have been happier. But that is not to say the stares, the glares, the questions, the answers of inter-cultural marries has not been challenging. It’s been a journey for sure.
“There are issues of communication, love, discipline, religion, children, education, in-laws, family-visits etc., that make this combination of marriage particularly fascinating, heart-breaking and exciting all at the same time.”
