Making it work
Intercultural and interfaith marriage
Keywords:interfaith marriage, intercultural marriage, marriage, cultural differences, conflict
There’s a beauty of intercultural relationships that is often admired but rarely discussed beyond the superficial. For the last five years, I have been married to a man—and married into his family—that adds a new cultural dimension to my already intercultural family. While I have navigated cultural differences my entire life, I have learned a new way of being with others who are unlike me. I have also learned that, though we are bound together by marriage, being family is more a choice that requires intentionality, grace, and patience.
