What do you believe are the best things about being in an intercultural relationship?
What about the worst things?
Here’s a quick list of my best and worst:
*Finding out about your other half’s country and culture
*Embracing and learning about that other culture and in the long term, really being apart of it.
*Mixed coloured babies (hehe- obviously hasn’t happened yet- but I think it’s gorgeous)
*Travelling (also hasn’t happened yet but can’t wait for when it does)
*Being happy/scared/excited/nervous/confused/exhilarated by your unique, but yet profoundly amazing relationship where two cultures constantly cross paths.
*Immigration, visas and paperwork
*Being judged by people
*Having to always compromise with and understand your partner’s culture when sometimes you are not comfortable with it i.e. society issues/outdated cultural aspects (this is sometimes a good thing though…)
I’m sure I’ll have plenty more as time goes on.
Please share your best and worst…
