interfaith/intercultural vs. same culture faith

Recommended Posts

I think it's really variable. It depends on the personalities involved, how flexible each is willing to be, and whether there are enough good things elsewhere in the relationship to make it strong enough to survive potential conflicts.


I am in an intercultural relationship; I'm a Canadian living in Japan with a Japanese husband. Cultural differences haven't been a big problem. For me the biggest problem is distance - whichever country we live in we're going to be far from one set of parents and extended family, and that's kind of sad. I feel bad that my son doesn't get to spend much time with my mom.


Neither of us is religious, so "interfaith" isn't an issue for us, but I have heard that it can cause problems when children arrive because people tend to want to raise their kids in their own religion.
