I am Polish (moved to the US when I was 3), and my FI/soon-to-be hubby is Irish-American. It’s a pretty typical pairing around here. πŸ™‚

Want to hear something neat? My Fiance has a big group of Irish-American guy friends where he grew up. They all still hang out, so he knows what they are up to. Out of his guy friends, none of them married a fellow Irish-American. Instead they married as follows:

One married a Filipino.

One married a Mexican.

One married a Greek.

One was dating Puerto Rican.

And my Fiance will be marrying a Pole. πŸ™‚

Even though most of us are lapsed Catholics, it’s interesting how the same faith can bring people together despite different nationalities.

  • Wedding: February 2015

We took DNA tests, so I can break this down πŸ™‚

Darling Husband: Nationality – Italian (born), American (naturalized). Ethnicity – 65.8% Italian, 33.7% German

Me: Nationality – American (born), Canadian (born), Italian (naturalized).  Ethnicity – 71.6% Han Chinese, 12% West African (Mandinka), 16.4% French + British.

We are definitely an interracial couple.  There’s no one I could have married that would make our relationship anything but πŸ™‚

Note: I am not a Jamaican citizen (never applied), so I didn’t claim that on my nationality, but both my parents were born in Jamaica and are Jamaican citizens (on top of other nationalities)

We both grew up in the US. His background is Filipino- his parents immigrated as adults. My background is Mexican- my maternal grandfather & paternal grandmother immigrated in their late teens and the other two grandparents’ families were in the Southwest since is belonged to Mexico. 

We laugh, though, because SO’s mom says I’m more filipino than him. I grew up in a parish that was almost 30% Filipino, so I know all the prayers in Tagalog as well as small phrases, which he doesn’t. He even calls family members by the English relational names (Mom, Dad, Aunt, Uncle) which I find odd. When I met his mom I did the bow & bring her hand to my forehead thing that I do to ALL the little old Filipina ladies at church and she started cracking up. It was awesome. 

ETA: SO’s sister married & had two sons with a Mexican-American man. So even though our kids will be biracial, they’d still have cousins with the same make-up. I really like that. Sister is divorced now, but I think the nephews warmed up to me more quickly because they could tease me about not making my own mole and demand I make flan for Christmas. πŸ™‚

I’m British born, and my ancestry so painfully English I practically bled tea! My great aunt has traced our family history back to the days where they sent convicts to Australia. Suffice to say, if her research is correct, my forebearers didn’t get out much!

I’m (ever so slightly) shaking it up, because my husband is 3rd generation Canadian with English and Polish ancestry.

Weirdly though his great-grandfather and my grandfather are buried in the same church in England, which is also the church where my parents were married. This is made all the more odd by the fact that that we met in Vancouver, a city with zero family ties for either of us…

Fiance is Baltic and I’m Mexican(Californio)/Dutch (My father’s family has been in California since it was part of Mexico but I grew up in Mexico, Mom’s is Dutch) both Fiance and I came to US full time for college. I’m “ambiguosly ethnic” and people usually have a hard time placing me (dark eyes/hair, super fair skin, interesting nose) so it will be even more confusing with an eastern european last name.

We’re both white, but he is 100% Irish. I am a mutt of Polish, Russian, some French (apparently) and all over that area.
