My imperfect couple
‘My imperfect couple’… this is what most multicultural couples turn out to be after a few years of marriage. The pushing and pulling begins. This is after realizing the once so perfect spouse, aint that perfect after all. This is after realizing that their cultures are totally different that it ends up putting a strain on their marriage. It is not easy having to deal with the differences and the pressure from family and friends.
The perfect couple… we all know them… the couple on almost every wedding cake… and the secret to their perfection is because their eyes don’t meet. They dont get to see the other person's imperfection. (I got that one my favorite show - desperate housewives.) That is actually true. Everyone experiences their perfect moments in a relationship. That is when we have just met and we don’t know each other’s dirty little secrets or nasty behaviors. And once we start analyzing one another for who we truly are, then we turn into ‘my imperfect couple’ in no time.

If couples borrow the secret from 'the perfect couple', then we might just make it. Culture is just culture. It’s a way of life yes. But instead of having a tag-of-war competition about it, it’s easier not to analyze. And instead of doing the analyzing why cant two people just ignore the world and come up with their own way of life… their own culture? Wont it be easier to stop clinging on to our past cultures and come up with something that is acceptable to the both of you?
If we decide to be the couple that doesn’t look at each other on the wedding cake then maybe most multicultural relationships won’t suffer much… We’ll all get along…
