I often blog about multicultural weddings and their beauty of two cultures blending into one fusion wedding.
It’s pleasing to see how couples choose to use their own traditions for their big day and it is useful for those planning their own wedding.
Dear Alice, I am a girl, in love with a transgender guy.
He was born with the wrong parts, but is truly the kindest person I have ever met.
Depending on your culture or religion, dating someone outside of your faith, can be deemed as unacceptable.
To those who do not have this issue can find this strange and slightly racist. I’m basing this on Asian culture, but again, it doesn’t necessarily imply to everyone.
But your parents have always wanted you to marry someone of your own faith.
They probably didn’t consider any other option, because this is all they know.
What do you do when your parents don’t approve or feel that the person you love/dating is the right person for you? And while I like to maintain a separation between church and date, I don’t think your culture can be entirely ignored here. So if your parents are super-caring and attentive, they’re likely to be overprotective.
Do you respect their wishes and find someone who is welcome at home and around your family, or do you follow your heart and stay with the person you love even if your parents may not attend the wedding? I’ve explored this concept before, in relation to successful women, but I think it applies to Judaism as well. If they’re intelligent, they’re likely to be opinionated.
