- Wedding: September 2010
i’m a 1.5 generation korean (came here when i was 6, still speak fluently). i grew up with the phrase “date whoever you want, but i’ll tell you who you’re going to marry” from my 1st generation, broken-english speaking dad.
i’ve only had three serious relationships, 1 with a korean guy, 1 with a filipino guy, 1 with my Fiance who is caucasian.
i never brought boyfriends to family functions, it was always kept very “friend” like… until Fiance, i started bringing him to EVERYTHING, just because i wanted EVERYONE to know about him and us, etc.
long story short, it’s been ASTOUNDING and SHOCKING as to how much my parents, brother, extended family have accepted him.
despite the tears and fights (believe me there were many)… my parents really have turned around and accept him for who he is and for all that he means to me :)<3
i guess when it’s really THE one, everything does fall into place… all my fears about marrying a “non” korean, have been subsided to my grateful relief 🙂
what are your personal experiences?
