While growing up in Africa, i was really used people with a particular culture; but i have always thought it would be a blessing to date or even marry a gal with a different culture, provided that person shares my faith, because i reckon there should be a synergy between the two cultures, since, although we are different, we are one body in Christ (Romans 12:5)
I have been living in London (which has become cosmopolitan of late) for some time now, and i have been blessed to meet and interact on a daily basis, with people from different races and with different cultures. However, i am yet to get emotional with a gal with different culture from mine, let alone from different race.
Nonetheless, my closet mate and a flatmate is a single mum from eastern europe. But i find that we tend to disagree on a lot of issues which i think is down to cultural differences or perhaps personality differences, or both. And it makes me wonder, if i can disagree with just a friend, what chances that i will not, with a life partner?
So could it be that cultural difference are more of a barrier to a fruitful relationship than a blessing?
