  1. https://www.buzzfeed.com/ashleyperez/i-wasnt-beautiful-enough-to-live-in-south-korea?utm_term=.hj0D8OB1X#.relMeaRO8 Cuban/Filipino/Korean-american If you are mixed raced/third culture kid it can be hard to fit into your parents' country.
  2. https://www.hofstede-insights.com/country-comparison/china,nigeria/ How could you bridge the gap between two different cultures? See above. Nigeria scores 84 for indulgence (24 for China) and a mere 13 for long-term orientation (while China scores 87). Sure these are mere averages but such relationships are doomed to fail.
  3. For people coming from Asian backgrounds, in-laws getting along really matters due to their collective mindset/culture which is less individualistic than someone without an Asian background. So, family approval and in-laws getting along is really important. I'm sure the situation is much the same in west Asia as well as eastern parts of Asia as well. Marriage between opposite religion people is not wise as there is a higher chance that it will also result in divorce. Are you aware that divorce rates are higher between people of different religions? Love doesn't just happen. Its a dec
  4. Sorry to burst your bubble of reality but the world is an inherently racist place. It exists everywhere even in western countries where diversity over unity is often valued highly. It's rare for overseas South Koreans in UK, USA, Australia etc. for example to marry people from other ethnic groups.

Same with Japanese people who refuse to accept anymore immigrants despite a soon aging population. In Australia, many Chinese businesses refuse to hire locals over someo
  5. Please just answer the question properly. It is not a false dichotomy. Please assume you only have these options. There is no other option.
  6. Well, if all your family are of a particular ethnic group and you marry someone from another ethnic group, in-laws may not be able to get along with each other or not as well as if the person was from a similar background. If you have any children and they are mixed race it will be harder for them to find a compatible donor should they require a bone marrow transplant or possibly other transplants I don't know about. The children may also not completely belong to either paternal or maternal families through lack of cultural awareness and language abilities in either language to commu
  7. Is it better for your health to release anger over injustices you have faced or repress it over many, many years? What are the repercussions of repressing your anger over many, many years? If you one day explode and manage to release all that repressed anger to an individual who you think deserves it, would it be better for your health than a situation where you never 'exploded' at all? Would you live a healthier life if you managed to get rid of all that anger through exploding onto someone else and venting/releasing all that steam and hidden anger?
  8. They say sitting is the new smoking now but I have no idea to what extent this dichotomy may be true.
