Hi. In the classroom today you will think about whether or not international relationships are a good idea.

An international relationship is usually defined as a relationship between two people from different countries.

It can also mean a relationship between two people living in the same country but who come from different cultural backgrounds.

It can even mean two people who come from different religious backgrounds.

International relationships can be a wonderful experience.

The two people involved in this type of relationship can learn many things from each other including culture, language, food, and values.

These same things which add to the relationship can also become a problem.

Differences in culture can lead to misunderstandings

Differences in language can also lead to misunderstandings.

Differences in food can cause daily problems.

Differences in values can lead to confusing behavior.

If you are in an international relationship, the best way to avoid problems and misunderstandings is to communicate with each other and learn everything you can about the culture, language, food, and values of your partner.

Until next time.
From YOUR Teacher: International Relationships

During my single days I was in quite a few international relationships. There were always good points such as learning about different cultures, eating different foods, and traveling to exotic places. There were also a few bad points including family problems, misunderstandings, miscommunications. My wife is Japanese and we, along with our son, are now living in both Japan and America. Traveling back and forth is a bit of a bitch but staying in both countries allows both of us to constantly learn many new things.
