    @redheadem: I love Italians! They are full of passion, love for their family and celebrate with good food. Whats not to love? This African American girl would marry an Italian! Best wishes.

    We had different religion/cuture. Because there is a pretty distinct culture difference between Jews and Christians sometimes. And in our wedding you could definately sense it at moments! And certainly in our marriage. But, I love it! We aren’t the cookie cutter couple and we couldn’t be having more fun with our differences.

    @redheadem:  I voted “different race and different culture.” I’m a Filipina Catholic while my Fiance is Indian Hindu. I hope our kids won’t be too confused, lol

    My Fiance is French and I’m American, although if I don’t open my mouth I can pull off looking French! 

    I’m with you on the food! Meals can last 2 hours…Unless it’s Christmas, then it’s more around 5! Got to give props to the French and Italians ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m american and my Fiance is danish.  I’m not too keen on the whole danish culture although they do have that meals that last hours and hours – except instead of delicious italian food, we have 15 varieties of herring and pork.  :-/

    @Au Jardin: same with me, as long as I don’t open my mouth people seem to think I’m danish… ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m Russian and My Darling Husband is Italian.  Needless to say there’s a lot of eating and drinking between our two families.

    My Fiance is Irish and I’m Italian, specifically Scilian. We both are 1st generation (both father’s came to the US from their home country). My boyfriend is fluent and IN LOVE with Welsh culture because he got his Master’s degree there. We are working to incorporate our culture in our food and possibly music (getting an Irish fiddle band for the cocktail reception!).

    Our cultures are very similar, which I think is what makes being interracial so much easier. I feel right at home with his family and vice versa!

    @redheadem: its pretty bad but I suppose it could be worse.  Fiance could be swedish and then we would have ROTTEN herring as well.  yum.

    I voted same race, different culture because my Fiance is from Scotland and I am from Canada. We met in Scotland, and when my visa expired he followed me back to Canada. ๐Ÿ™‚
