As a friend once jokingly told me, “It’s better to have an Italian accent than a gringo accent.” Reply After living in Hong Kong for two years, I came home to Seattle…and promptly met, fell in love with, and married a man from Hong Kong. 8) My kids voluntarily eat tofu, dried whole fish and “juice” made from flowers! (Today, he said his teeth had “plague.” He meant plaque.) 6) His mother! Reply I am Scottish and living with a Catalan man near Barcelona. Dugan Romano’s book Intercultural Marriage even explores various types- I am a Nontraditional.Whenever I have a baby, she moves in for a month and does all the cooking and cleaning. 5) Being able to have an argument in broad daylight and know that nobody else can understand us. When we argue we can decide it is a misunderstanding and stop! Yes, my family and friends find him totally charming and handsome – and he is. Because he’s so Dutch, he opted to teach our daughter Spanish over Dutch, because he thought it was more “practical”. He’s got that oh-so-useful red (EU) passport, and now so does our daughter! We’re both up always up for an adventure since our marriage is one to begin with. I can always say in job interviews I have hands-on experience with multi-cultural situations. Just about anywhere in Europe, he can manage to understand the answer when he asks for directions (which he always wants to do! However, I find that this is a “taboo topic” even at Global Leadership meetings at the university where I work.But my White Australian boyfriend have a harder time adapting to me.😛 Especially on the matter of food, and this has been quite challenging to my avid cook self.Reply I didn’t marry a man from another country, but I did marry one whose family is intractably Republican. I converted him in the end, but we still have to have holidays with Republicans! You should write one titled “10 Reasons Why You Should Marry a Republican (Like I Did)”! Knowing you, it would be hilarious, full of tongue-in-cheek witticisms and so much more. then you could have had both the foreigner elements AND the Republican elements – oh yea baby, bring it on! Being married to a republican would DEFINITELY be more difficult than being married to my Chinese husband. I’m currently not speaking to one of my husband’s nephews who is a far right wing idiot who just can’t keep his mouth shut.😉 Reply I think if I were married to a republican I would go insane or want to leave him. I used to really care for him but he really pushed me TOO FAR!!! although we are both native English speakers the cultural differences between Americans and Brits is vast!
And in my case, a Canadian married to a Spaniard, I’ve gratefully adopted the good food, great wine and Mediterranean sunshine.
But in time we did become fascinated with one another’s cultures (even if not always for good reasons).
I can totally relate to what you say about your non-Latvian husband teaching you about how truly Latvian you are.
hat with all of the fantastic American men around, what made me choose to tie the knot with a foreigner? I should say that when my husband and I met we were not enamored with each other’s cultures!
How about this fun, tongue-in-cheek, stereotypical rundown of some of my favorites (ignoring, of course, all of the challenges that go into an international marriage – you can find those in my post 10 Reasons Why You Should NOT Marry a Foreigner)? I went to Ireland to hang out with the Irish, not some German guy!
Reply I married a Domincan because of the first and second reasons on the list: he was the only one who offered me “unconditional friendship” before it evolved into love, and I never did things the easy way anyhow. I am Italian American and only learned the surface aspects of the culture, such as food. Later back in the States, wish I could remember all the funny things my husband said. He pointed to the growing pile of scrap paper and said, “You are creating a fire hydrant! For my son and I it was like having our own secret language.
