It is universally acknowledged that cross cultural exchanges can do wonders to your business, knowledge and productivity. However, little was it known that cross cultural marriages can strike the right balance as they promise conjugal bliss. Are you confused? This article will tell why such an exchange can diminish the bipolarity of our world and the changing dynamics will ensure your happiness.
Western men have witnessed the emergence of the highly empowered woman on a large scale. They know that gender disparity is an issue in the global south because equal education opportunities in the west have put women at par with men. Today the western woman is aware of her rights and is becoming career oriented to an extent that family life is taking the back seat. In such a social atmosphere, the western man is seen yearning for a harmonious family life. Sadly enough, while he wishes for the integrated family he also has to see the rising divorce rates which indicate that marriages are collapsing as an institution. Thereby, he turns his eye towards the Asian countries where he not only finds attractive women who can proposed for marriage but also a culture where marriages are placed on a high pedestal.
They are hailed so much so that they are commonly referred to as ‘matches made in the heaven.’ Western men love to marry Asian women as they are far more compromising and mostly choose family life over their careers. Moreover, history and traditions tell that they are keener on raising large families than the western women. They are not under the impression that small families can be happy because the children can be well fed and well-schooled without facing the threat of exorbitant prices. Thus, western men who are usually well to do, desire an integrated lifestyle and marry Asian women so that they can grow old with the burgeoning number of grandchildren.
On the other hand, Asian women are gradually granting themselves freedom from conventionality. They are not afraid of voicing their opinions. Moreover, as the world is becoming more and more interlinked, it is opening numerous opportunities for such women. They are receiving education and exposure and can no longer be called the intellectual inferiors of the western women. With all those qualities, they are willing to embrace the western culture with open arms majorly because the West understands their newly acquired interests better. The struggle is no longer nightmarish and the Western man is ready to enter a harmonious relationship with them. This, exchange thus proves to be less taxing and demanding. Both explore each other’s cultures and find themselves equally amused and engrossed in the multi cultured world they have chosen to inhibit.
The Eastern woman proves to be the dream housewife with a thorough knowledge of domestic chores and this is one of the biggest reasons why western men like to marry Asian women. Moreover, she has grown up with the view that man is more suited to the hard core jobs therefore, after marriage she willingly takes over the title of a housewife. With such a compromise, it is no surprise that such marriages not only prosper but give others an eye opener that such exchanges are actually worth it.
