    Re: Similiarity in Marriages...

    I guess if the marriage is within the same cultural/ethic group then the married couple, as well as their families, can better relate to one another in terms of customs and traditions. That is, if they're religious. It'd make it easier for the two families to integrate and accept each other.

    However, I think in today's society, there are less people caught up in cultural traditions and all, especially in western societies. Nowadays I see more and more married couples of mixed ethnicity with completely different cultural backgrounds.

    I think with today's technology, with the television and novels and magazines/newspapers so widespread, it's a lot easier for people to become familiar with other cultures and religions, and to become more acceptive of another's traditions. I'm pretty sure that a hundred years ago, people weren't as savvy and understanding as today. Other cultures and religions would have been alien to them, so rejection was almost a given.

    That is true.. any cultural or religious conflict occurs they can be easily solved... ^^

    However, I think in today's society, there are less people caught up in cultural traditions and all, especially in western societies. Nowadays I see more and more married couples of mixed ethnicity with completely different cultural backgrounds.
    Yup... in my family alone... theres a lot of such marriages... and in my neighbourhood... i can spot such couples easily... and even my cousin of the same age as i am are planning to marry a guy of a different religion and ethnicity...

    I think with today's technology, with the television and novels and magazines/newspapers so widespread,it's a lot easier for people to become familiar with other cultures and religions, and to become more acceptive of another's traditions. I'm pretty sure that a hundred years ago, people weren't as savvy and understanding as today. Other cultures and religions would have been alien to them, so rejection was almost a given.
    now thats a good point there... i agree with that... but this still occurs in this time... well there are still old minded or narrow minded parents... who wont let thier children marry another of different ethnicity or religion...

    and what about other smaller attributes... like personalities, and likes or dislikes...ect ect... would that help? ^^

    Naturally I think that having similar marriage customs/beliefs could make the transition easier for the entire family but I don't think that religion or ethnic backgrounds should cause any problems between two people wanting to get married.

    Sheesh Ray... You should eddit that post a bit I almost couldn'tunderstand what you mean ^^ (>.< sorry)

    Well there are some cases when differences are a good thing. There are things in witch one person must balance the other, like temper- if one is agressive, the other one should be calm. Also different opinions in things makes the life a bit more interesting- you have something to tak about ^^

    On the other hand there are some cases when it's better if the poeple have similar opinions and views. Like, when it comes to music- it's hard if one likes clasic music and the other one listens only to rap, or the same religion- if both of the persons are strictly believing something else, it will be hard to get to a common decision or something...

    So, my suggestion would just be living together for quite a while, being very open and finding out if they fit together before deciding on a marrige.

    That could go either way. While it helps to have somethings in commom, it is not required. If it is someone that you truly love but have nothing in common with you can always find common ground somewhere. If you can't then it wouldn't help either way. On one side you, if you did have things in common, then you would always have something to do together. But if you didn't, then you could use it as a fun way to learn new stuff and see if you really do like it. As for the marriage part of it, well I would have to agree with Lasura on this, you should live together/be together for a while before you really jump into marriage.

    I think that following tradition is very important. I mean, the couple can add their own personal touches, but I like tradition. When/If I get married, I intend it to be in a Catholic church, bride in white and groom in a tux . . . that sort of thing, the type of thing you would see regardless of the century.
