Give and take is the answer...
meeting half way, and not demanding your own way all the time..
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

I am American and my wife is a very traditional Chinese woman... one who describes herself as a "simple peasant girl".  We live in a small town and she grew up in a rural setting outside of the town.  We are, I guess you could say, elderly. We were together for a year before we got married.  We've been married 10 years now.  There absolutely are cultural differences.  Which we both respect.  Since we live in China, obviously I've had a lot of learning to do... and she had a lot of teaching to do.  I'm thankful she is a patient and tolerant woman.

My wife is Chinese and there were cultural differences. I'm 62 she is 53. She is a very traditional lady. The more I learned the more Chinese thinking made sense. I wish I had meet her twenty years ago. We hold hand were ever we go.

I married a foreigner and it has been a wonderful and interesting life together. Sure, we come from different cultures, but we both have learned a lot, and it continues. One must be open-minded and tolerant, but many people just cannot do this... as is shown on this thread.
