Love without borders

Hello my lovelies, yesterday my husband and I celebrated our Anniversary. Weยดve been together now for 14 years(married for 10 years). Last night we spent a couple of hours going down memory lane together…..watching old videos and going through photo albums. It is such a good feeling to see how far we have come together. So for those of you who ask what is the secret of a healthy, long lasting relationship/marriage? I will say,….Love, Respect, Trust and Loyalty is what you need in abundance.!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

We all know dating someone from another culture, let alone another continent has itยดs challenges. Finding that special someone and building a long lasting relationship despite the cultural differences is very much a reality if you are open minded and have the right intentions. ๐Ÿ˜€
Every successful and happy long-term relationship needs a strong foundation in order to face obstacles that will occur down the years.

I personally believe Love is the most important part of this foundation. Love should be one of the major reasons you get together with a potential partner and where there is a good love connection, the rest can be worked on ๐Ÿ˜€. This does apply to all relationships be it in a monocultural or an intercultural setting.

But if you are in an intercultural relationship…. specifically an Afro/Euro one like I am in,ย  there are other aspects to consider. It is very very important to be open minded and be ready to embrace cultural differences…..for example the food, the language, etc and even “Hair”!!!. Yes, If you didn’t see this coming, then I’m not sure what to tell you. ๐Ÿ˜€
Black hair is an incredibly versatile and amazing topic, but if you weren’t brought up around it, it can be confusing. Imagine one day seeing your black queen with a cute pixie style. But then the next week, she’s rocking Marley twists. It can be a bit alarming, just because of how different the hair texture is……. so both parties need to learn about this big difference. My Afro sisters, right from the start of dating, you have to tell him all the details about your hair secrets because this might be a deal breaker down the line.๐Ÿ˜€

For those who are curious about the possible cultural challenges in an interracial relationship/marriage, I find this video from youtuber “AdannaDavid” gives a very good insight into some of these differences. ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ



To anyone out there also celebrating their anniversary, I wish you many more blissful years with your partner. Wishing you all a great weekend and be good until we meet again. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜
