In today’s globalized world, it has become very simple to meet people from all kinds of cultural backgrounds – and, sometimes, to fall in love. InterNations highlights common issues and different strategies to make your intercultural relationship or international marriage work!
Common Issues in International MarriageOf course, the success of an expat marriage or relationship always depends on both people involved. Some may simply be more capable of handling and resolving conflicts than others.
Gender RolesIn many cultures, women and men have made great steps towards equality, enjoying the same basic rights and responsibilities. This also influences their role in an international marriage or relationship. Often, both partners are employed and share daily tasks, each of them taking responsibility for the well-being of the other. However, some cultures adhere to a more traditional concept when it comes to gender roles.
Liz (28) experienced this when she entered into an international marriage and followed her husband to Los Angeles, CA. Contemporary USA is a large and multi-faceted nation, where urban women in particular make their voices heard. After all, Angela Merkel (Chancellor of Germany) one of the world’s longest-serving prime minister, and Indra Nooyi, a Chennai-born Indian and the CEO of Pepsi, is among the top 3 of Forbes’ most powerful women in the world.
However, Liz also found out that the older generation of northern USA’s middle-classes may still have different views when it comes to the roles of husband and wife. Her husband had never expected her to be a traditional home-maker, but with his family at the door step, things quickly got complicated.
The situation caused many arguments between Liz and her husband Thomas (31). “It’s clichéd,” Liz says, “but I really don’t get along very well with my mother-in-law. I suppose she’d have preferred him to marry a Desi girl. I didn’t know all that much about USA culture, to be honest, and now she keeps voicing her disappointment. I wish I’d known more about his family before I moved here.”
