Jonah was in disbelief over how his wife’s family reacted when they found out she was dating a black man, according to the Times of India.“Everyone was crying, like there was a death in the family,” he said.I'm North Indian, so my skin is pretty fair, and when people find out I'm Indian and the first follow up question is always, "Oh, is your mom a great cook?" Ideally you'll want to meet the parents because the relationship is going well, and not because you want to satisfy your Indian food craving, but it's definitely a perk. I started this blog to hopefully shoot down some of the common misconceptions people have about relationships like ours and to answer some of the more common questions that people may have about being in an intercultural relationship. This blog is about our lives together as a mixed marriage couple, specifically African American (me) and East Indian (M). We have two children (from my previous marriage) and two dogs (one that I’m convinced has a social disorder, lol). Arranged marriages are still very much a thing, but they've modernized.
They now live in Peterborough with their two children.*eye roll*), Cece from New Girl , or the saag paneer at their favorite Indian place.There's nothing wrong with any of these topics, of course. (If my grandmother read that sentence, she would give me the most stern look in her Indian grandmother arsenal.) These things are all awesome, but there's so much more, and if you're going to date an Indian girl, you need to at least try to be aware of the rest of it.And no, she doesn't have an Om her room or on a chain around her neck because it's ~~trendy~~.Though like, while we're on this topic, it'd be a good idea if you learned who Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan were.
