International Marriage

By michelle      2011-02-24

International marriage refers to a marital relationship between a man and a woman of different nationalities, which is more popular as the development of Internet. But if every common marriage requires commitment, dedication and work, an international marriage requires even more attention because of the many obstacles that a couple faces. The obstacles come from family, friends, personal values, expectations, and bureaucratic procedures.

Some of the problems these international relationships may face include:

• Language Barrier • Differences in Values • Religious Conflicts • Sex Role Expectations • Economic Adjustments • Fear of Abandonment by Family, Friends, Spouse • Political Issues • Legal Complications

To overcome these barriers, international couples need to:

• Learn about one another's cultures. • Communicate well in at least one language. • Be open and honest with their families. • Accept that cultural roots go deep and that people don't change easily or quickly. • Focus on the positives. • Look at what they have in common with one another. • Talk with one another about which traditions they want to carry on as a couple and with their children. • Discuss their expectations in the areas of mealtimes, holidays, finances, sex, chores and roles. • Look at why it is difficult to let go of a tradition or expectation.

It isn't easy to deal with the legacy that we've all grown up with in our ethnic, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. The key to a successful intercultural marriage is to develop understanding and patience.

I know a couple which wife comes from middle east and husband from Europe. Their marriage ceremony was really interesting. It was divided into 2 part. One belong to middle east custom and another belong to the husband's hometown custom.
