Culture differences are the main issues in cross-nation marriges.  Will couples overcome the culture differences after the heat of the passion of love?  How long will the marriage last?  Any good examples?  Love to hear both negative and positive opinions?

that depends on different individuals

here are some successful cases:
1. Qiu Fazu(裘法祖) and his wife Luo yi(罗懿 ) from germany  have been getting along for more than 60 years;
2. Chen Xiangmei(陈香梅Anna) and her America husband Chen Nade(陈纳德ClaireLeeChennault)
3. In the movie On the Other Side of the Bridge (2002)(芬妮的微笑), Ma Yunlong's wife was an Austrian. Actually, this is a real story.
......
Of course, there are probably more aborted examples.
Generally speaking, a permanent marriage is tied in with loving, believing, understanding and respecting mutually.

One of my favorite professors is American and has been married to a Chinese woman for many years. Such is the case with a number of professors in my major department.

I think this type of marriage does last, work!

However, both parties need to understand the difference between two cultures, and accept the difference.
