International Day of the Families is celebrated on 15 May on the global platform, which provides an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families.

Building a close family is not an easy thing to do, which supposedly has to involve with love, care, patience, devotion, you name it.

As we know, there are many members here who are in cross-cultural marriges. It's understandable that they have to overcome more obstacles to build a strong and close family. There must be difficult issues for cross-cultural couples to face up with.

At this special occasion, we invite you to look at cross-cultural families.  If you happen to be in a cross-cultural marrige, do share your experience with us. If not, voice your opinion on how to build a happy cross-cultural family.

I am an American Caucasian married to a Chinese woman of Han descent. We love each other dearly but one issue I have is her powerful allegiance to her birth family. I knew this was part of Chinese culture before we married but nevertheless it still bothers me a bit. She is frequently concerned about how her family will perceive her actions rather than being more secure in herself.

Growing up in the West I too love my birth family but my culture says once you grow up and marry that is now your primary family.

I'm also an American with a Chinese wife and I can tell you my life has never been so wonderful.  We know many Chinese American marriages and I find that both need to have patience, understanding and love.
