Marrying in your own culture can be a bit difficult to handle, but imagine marrying foreign national woman! Sure, it seems fun. You met someone online, you fell in love and you decided to get married. What could go wrong, right? Wrong! There’s a lot at stake when two people are getting married, and there’s even more at stake when you’re marrying foreign national woman. It may seem like a lot of fun, and she may bring a lot of new things into your life, but in the long run, it can be difficult to manage.
For one thing, it is very difficult for a foreign woman to adjust in a new country. The norms, customs and traditions are completely different than what she is used to. The sense of community that she felt in her own country will not be here and she may begin to feel isolated. Another thing is that she will feel very lonely and will miss her family and everything she left behind when she came to a different country after marriage. This is especially common in women who come from close knit families such as in Asia.
Another problem that will be faced will be that you two will clash on many things. You will be used to things being done a certain way and she may be used to another way entirely. If the two of you cannot compromise and find middle ground, it will become very difficult for you to stay happy. Things like how to raise your children may be the downfall of your relationship if you two cannot figure out the details beforehand.
One more that may become difficult to handle is if there is a language barrier. Sure, in the beginning it seems awfully cute when she speaks with an accent, but it may not be so cute in a few years if you two cannot get your message across to each other. There may be a lot of misunderstandings to deal with as well. And if you try to make her take classes, she may feel like you’re trying to change her, and that will not sit well with her.
Apart from these issues, there are also the issues all married couples face in their lives. Summed up, that makes marriage with a foreign woman a lot more difficult to handle. However, if you’re up for it, go ahead! Who knows, you may find a way to make it work!
