Interracial dating christian perspective

Being in love is one of the best feelings in the world.

The only comparable feeling is probably when I won tickets to see a live taping of Stephen Colbert, discovered chocolate soy milk (milk allergy), or, like, my future kid gets married.

He will never catch all the sarcastic jokes my sister whispers under her breath; I will never be able to reply quickly enough to his father’s drunken ramblings.

Those social keys, elements of sarcasm, and play on words expressions will never come naturally to each of us in a foreign language.

However, most of it is defined by the fact that I am white and he is Asian.

My relationship (like any relationship) is a compromise between the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Racism is one of those things that you can’t fully comprehend unless you are a victim of it.

And it is a little bit scary trying to live day by day. The hardest part of an intercultural relationship is deciding when to compromise, when to fight, and when to draw the line. What are you supposed to do if your partner is completely opposed to your religion?

Sure, this week I think it is a bit silly (but adorable) that Ryosuke makes me wipe my feet off with wet wipes before climbing into bed (even if I have been wearing slippers all day). He likes the fact I am ambitious and want to have a solid career, but what about in five years, when his family is pressuring me to quit my job to have (and take care of) kids? What if he thinks you should quit your job after marriage to become a housewife?

If you do not respect and appreciate your partners culture (to the extent you are willing to forsake elements of your own culture for their benefit), intercultural and interracial relationships are nearly impossible.

I started to wonder if there were any other couples “out there” like me.
