Making Interracial Relationships Work

By Guest Author On May 4, 2011 Under Improve Your Life, Improve Your Self Esteem, Law of Attraction, Self Help Tips, Self Improvement, Setting Goals, Success Secrets

The old saying that opposites attract has never been truer than with interracial relationships.  There are millions of couples is this country who are in loving and permanently bonded yet interracial duets.  This is not a new phenomenon but it is definitely on the rise.  It is clear that the significant rise in the number of interracial relationships has much to do with the drastic falloff in the level of racial discrimination as compared to decades ago.  Some men did bring home women from other races after WWII but these were rare events in those days.  Nonetheless, today this is quite common.

Some things have not changed in regard to these kinds of relationships and these we will explore in this article.  Interracial couples would be well advised to consider a full and open series of discussions prior to making their relationship permanent.   Often, even the most well-meaning couples are reluctant to discuss deeply their uniqueness and personal ties to their culture and race. 

While most of these are issues of granting latitude to your mate, some of them have a direct bearing on how you will ultimately live your life.  If an issue was not discussed prior to getting serious and that issue become a point of major disagreement afterward, then both parties erred in not discussing it.  It cannot be discussed if it is not recognized.  This simply means that you cannot discuss something that is not brought forward.   A thorough understanding of these principles might, indeed, help to get ex back.

An example here should suffice.  In some Asian countries it is considered blasphemous for children not to visit their family once a year.   If that place is abroad, it can become a major issue.

Religion is the other major issue of potential problems.  Many couples get serious before this is even discussed at all.   A partner who was raised in a very particular way, dictated by religion, may be uncomfortable discussing it, but this may indeed surface when there are young children present and it comes time to discuss how they will be raised.  Simply not worshipping together can be a huge problem down the line.   If you are anticipating a breakup, due to complex interracial matters, your chance to win your ex back, will be heightened by knowing all these things.

The final issues that needs discussion is family.  Many times one of the partners is considered outcast by their family for racial reasons.   This can place great strain on even the best duets.   What all this means is that you need to discuss everything that could possibly become an issue before it does.   If you are attempting to get ex back from a family-driven breakup with interracial characteristics, these are issues affecting your success.
