Colors of love :Mixed couples

This week we will talk about mixed couples.
The difficulties, the trends and the family that surrounds you…

True Love Has No Color 

Interracial marriages have a hard go at it.  They suffer not only from the prejudice of others, but also from inherent problems of differences between their respective cultures which combine with those already present in a marriage.  Ethnic groups bring variety and richness to a society by introducing their own ideas and customs.  Interracial marriages introduce such variety.  In a perfect world, everyone should celebrate this.  However, the world does not look at all marriages as love between two people without regard to their race.
Love and affection is the most important factor why people are engaged to marry particularly outside their racial boundaries. This is the feelings that see no boundaries no matter what. Love is a powerful weapon and this can be a tool to eradicate bad things and conquer everything at the same time, it can also ruin one’s life if people misunderstood.
Marriage Preparation
Good-quality marriage preparation is essential in helping couples work through the questions and challenges that will arise after they tie the knot.
Of all the challenges an interfaith couple will face, the most pressing one likely will be the question of how they raise their children.
Don't be afraid to create a hybrid ceremony based on your values.
Marriage equality will be the norm, and love will prevail in positive ways.
 “I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being--neither white, black, Brown, or red; and when you are dealing with humanity as a family there's no question of integration or intermarriage. It's just one human being marrying another human being or one human being living around and with another human being.” 
Malcolm X, The Autobiography of Malcolm X

According to" New Family", 58 percent of Israeli families have both a father 
And a mother who are Jewish. 12 percent are not Jewish, 
10 percent are interfaith marriages and the rest are single-parent families, 
Unwed couples, couples who married in a civil service, 
Foreign workers and same-sex couples.
So you already know I'm from Israel, and here it is like ingathering of the exiles. 
A Russian marries an Ethiopian girl, a Jewish girl with Arab guy, 
Polish with Moroccan and etc., a huge mix of traditions and cultures.
My mother is Turkish and my father is Iraqi. My husband's parents are both from India.
So, we already have 3 cultures in our family. 
Our kids are mixed and have a little from each one. 
We don’t have a certain food that controls in our house, neither as traditions.
We are not believers. In our wedding, there weren't any cultures characteristics, 
Besides my husband's mother who were a sari. 
We raise our kids in a country where everybody is different and that has a lot 
Of religions and cultures, but all has the same ambition I hope- peace,
Health livelihood and love.     

So what do you think? Are you a mixed couple as well?
