You’ve seen the movie or maybe you haven’t seen this particular one (and really I can’t blame you too much if you haven’t) but atleast one just like it.
The premise is this, American girl meets Indian boy. They fall in love. They want to marry. Indian boy tells Indian Family and everything falls apart. In Bollywood, the boy and girl always wind up together with everyone happily ever after. In Hollywood it could go that way or it could also have the boy marrying the girl his family arranged for him and the girl left knee deep in tissues wondering “Kya hua?”
This entire Blog was started to be a place for rational, logical, and sometimes very emotional issues to be dealt with concerning your Intercultural relationship. Searching the web can sometimes be a fruitless search of “American girl + Indian boy + how to tell family” or “How to get Indian Parents to accept Non Indian Bahu (daughter in law)”. These searches generally bring up the Yahoo Questions where the answers are not so helpful and the success stories are rare indeed. There just isn’t much out there.
If you’re in this kind of relationship, this Blog is here to help. I’m here to help as much as I can. I’ve done a lot of research on this topic. I know people who have experienced it. I’ve experienced it. I am living it.
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be posting as much information a I can to help get this site up and functional. I plan on having “real life success” stories, examples, helpful tips, advice and links for other resources. Mainly though, this is here just to let you know that you aren’t alone. There lots of us out there and there are lots of success stories. Have faith, but most of all, have patience.
There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
