Intercultural Marriage Book Excerpt:

Today we live in a world without borders, a global village. Distance no longer defines who we meet, fall in love with or marry. The Internet and e-mail connect people around the world in seconds. Immigration, study abroad, travel and multinational business have created a thriving cross-cultural community. But the experiences shared across cultures and countries do not always bridge the fundamental differences in beliefs and behaviors that span diverse cultures. In Intercultural Marriage, Dugan Romano delivers a “reality check” for anyone already in, or contemplating, an intercultural marriage. This insightful book interweaves lessons learned from others and suggests that the joys of an intercultural marriage often result from turning the challenges of crossing cultures into an opportunity for a fulfilling and lasting relationship. Now in its third edition, Intercultural Marriage examines the impact of cultural differences in marriage and offers practical guidelines on how to deal with the complexities they bring to a partnership. Covering such topics as raising bicultural children, religion, values, male vs. female roles, sex and social class, Romano continues to give voice to hundreds of couples she has interviewed and followed for over a decade.

Equally Yoked Book Excerpt:

During the past fifty years, Western culture has experienced a significant shift in its overall stance regarding multiethnic marriage. As a result, more North Americans than ever marry spouses whose ethnicity (or culture) differs from theirs. This trend also is observable in Christian circles. Unfortunately, few resources exist to help multiethnic couples maneuver through the potential minefield of cultural collision. The purpose of this volume is to provide such a resource. Equally Yoked examines the subject of multiethnic marriage from a biblical perspective, before considering a history of the practice in North America over the last four centuries. Additionally, this book surveys the challenges that multiethnic Christian couples frequently encounter, and offers premarital counseling propositions that will prove valuable to both counselors and couples who originate from diverse backgrounds.

Every Season in a Marriage has Benediction Book Excerpt:

The Seasons of Marriage Marriage life has different seasons. It doesn’t matter whether you are a newlywed or have been married for years, there will definitely be times in your marriage relationship when you feel frustrated, sad, angry, irritated, or confused. On the hand, there will also be times in your marriage when you feel completely in love, bonded, connected, secure, and happy. Moments of thoughtfulness, playfulness, exploration, discovery, and quiet time together can make you feel like you are living in your own world. There is nothing good than feeling loved, like everything in your relationship is just connecting. In marriage, there are two big categories of seasons namely: internal and external. External marital seasons are those difficult situations, matters and issues of which we have absolutely no control. Internal marital problems are issues that develop from within the marriage over which both spouses have control. A successful couple understand that in order to maintain happiness and balance in their marriage, they must learn how to change their gears. When complications arise, these couples communicate, take the risk to express their feelings, listen to one another, and work TOGETHER to create a solution. Marriage is a journey with different seasons as you travel. Remember that every season is a unique adventure. Live and enjoy the season you are in and enjoy the benedictions through: • Better communication • More quality time together • Affair preventions • Lowered odds for divorce • Reactivated sex life • Flexibility to succeed despite conflicting differences. Finally, good and bad seasons are natural in marriage, everyone knows that. Sometimes everything is working right for you. Sometimes your marriage is facing trials, hardships and challenges. Sometimes everything seems stagnant and frozen. You must know that you can't fast-forward, rewind, or skip reasons. No season is for no reason. God brings us through every season for divine reason. The beauty of marriage is in facing the changes together as a team.

Love and Marriage in Globalizing China Book Excerpt:

As China globalizes, the number of marriages between Chinese people and foreigners is increasing. These Chinese--foreign marriages have profound implications for China’s cultural identity. This book, based on extensive original research, outlines the different types of Chinese--foreign marriage, and divorce, and the changing scale and changing patterns of such marriages, and divorces, and examines how such marriages and divorces are portrayed in different kinds of media. It shows how those types of Chinese--foreign marriage where Chinese patriotism and Chinese values are preserved are depicted favourably, whereas other kinds of Chinese--foreign marriage, especially those where Chinese women marry foreign nationals, are disapproved of, male foreign nationals being seen as having a propensity to infidelity, deception, violence and taking advantage of Chinese women. The book contrasts the portrayal of Chinese--foreign marriage with the reality, and with the depiction of Chinese--Chinese marriage where many of the same problems apply. Overall, the book sheds much light on changing social processes and on current imaginings of China’s place in the world.
