Speaking of cultures.............every one knows....Italians still have their unique culture.....Spanish people still have their unique culture.....British people still have their unique culture......French still have their unique culture.....Indians still have their unique culture.....Greek....etc...etc.... after so many hundred of years had gone by in human time.!|
In my mind, I have no doubt that Chinese culture would remain unique easily for another 5 thousand years or more. You do have a choice as to how to live your life.....right?....and I assume that no one is forcing you to adapt to a different ways or to incorporate "strange" ways into your life. Am I correct?
Look at the American culture and how it has been influencing the world....I agree with magicbean that no one single culture can live in isolation....definitely the world is becoming very small.
In Canada, there are many "white" men wanting to date and marry ethnic Chinese girls...I know the reasons too....and it is cool with me....because Chinese women are beautiful, smart, gentle, educated, talented, kind, etc...when the couple is serious about staying together for life.....of course they see their respective parents....this is an universal practice....we all have parents....we all would like to be connected with our parents even after married....this is not an unique practice by the Chinese people!
Your questions " How is it you can bring the laowai home to mama and baba? whats that going to be like?"....well....as far as I know....the woman could introduce her serious boyfriend or the man could introduce his serious girlfriend to their respective parents through 1) home visit, 2) eat-out, 3) phone call, 4) skype, 5) email, 6) home visit again, 7) BBQ party, 8) Father's day party, 9) Mother's day party, 10) birthday's party....etc...etc...
Are you saying western cultures are more open then Chinese culture? Please explain what do you mean by "more open"....more open in what sense?....should we look at cultural differences from a "competitive" perspective or a "unique" perspective?
You mentioned about Chinese traditional values....within the context of your discussion....could you elaborate further?....what are the traditional values that you are referring to?....Thank you for your time!
