How to be in relationship with someone from another culture?
Being in a relationship can have it difficulties as it is without the added stress of dealing with cultural differences.
But, what do we mean by cultural difference?
This could be anything from:
- having different religions or faiths,
- having a different background or ethnicity,
- having different family traditions,
- speaking a different language and much much more.
Of course having a cultural difference doesn’t mean that things have to be more difficult. Research shows that couples who are really open about cultural differences experience less relationship distress.
What kinds of cultural differences have you experienced in your relationships?
