Zimbabwe - Transcending cultural barriers
Multicultural, interracial and multiethnic dating and/or marriages are one sure way of transcending cultural barriers. Zimbambe is one good example in Africa. The influx of migrant workers from Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique who settled in the country during the social revolution eventually ended up with the immigrants marrying the locals… People gotta mate ;-)
Most academics also left the country for most English speaking countries to pursue academic studies. Well man cannot live on bread alone. While there, they not only enhanced their education… they also found love.
One thing we owe to independence is intercultural and interracial marriages are now common and have become part of the new social structure. Unlike before, quite a number of foreigners are now getting married to locals. Is this what we call the height of civilization… Love transcending cultural and racial barriers? Well this could be the case coz in Zimbabwe, cross-cultural marriages are now quite common and no longer raise eyebrows in society, as was the case before.

Getting married isn’t hard. But even with support from the parents, adjusting to a new culture is what is. However accommodation of other races by religious and educational institutions is thus encouraging cultural fusion. And with the increasing number of young people who are going to study abroad, the trend will certainly continue.
"Zimbabweans are becoming tolerant because diverse cultural groups are increasing and it has become increasingly very difficult for the locals or foreigners to only look inside their race for someone to marry," said the pastor Evan Mawarire of Hear the Word Ministries. However, not everyone accepts this position, the older generation is still skeptical about such marriages, with some parents refusing to attend their children’s weddings, others sitting in the back crying throughout the wedding!!! But what really matters is praying for those getting married to be happy.
If it can be done in Zimbabwe, so can it be worldwide. I gotta have faith people…
