    Great interview.
    Your honesty on the challenges of a cross-cultural marriage are also an inspiration for “same-culture marriages” as the same issues can also be found in both: communication, negotiation, compromise and understanding.

    Intercultural is defined as where you are. In the US, most white Americans wont consider a Russian-Ukrainian marriage mixed…they will simply be white. It will be a different story in Russia or Ukraine.

    I finally got a chance to look at the original post. A good interview. I was very intrigued by the baby mobile debacle!

    As far as speaking Mandarin (and getting glared at), I think that’s a problem (in certain parts of the US, particularly) for anyone speaking a foreign language. It’s not exclusive to mixed culture/race couples. Once when I was checking in at the Milwaukee airport the elderly man in front of me went ballistic because he saw bilingual signs at check-in. Oh, no, Espanol is taking over! The horror, the horror!

    Read only a snippet, but I’m shocked that a hate group targeted you and your husband! Personally, I don’t recall experiencing racism if I’m with someone, although one time I was at a Vietnamese restaurant with an ex Korean girlfriend and I remember putting my arm around her and women giving us dirty looks. (she and I are friends, nothing more than that.)
