Cross Cultural Couples

“Love is not always enough for mixed-race couples”

Cross cultural couples can face unique challenges driven by cultural, racial and religious issues. Common problems that can arise are:

  • different parenting styles
  • in-laws
  • religious customs
  • gender role expectations

Couples counselling (also called Marriage Guidance or Relationship Therapy) can help you and your partner to find common ground between each partner’s culture.
