Dating in other cultures

All of the men I've ever dated have been from different cultures.

Right in one of these five countries with distinctive dating practices.

My grandmother once told me, “When you're looking for a life partner, it's best to date someone who's Jewish.”Why?

“Because it's one less thing to fight about.”The waters of romance can be rough, and avoiding the iceberg of “What religion will we raise our children as? As much as I love my wild and crazy grandmother, I never listened to this specific piece of wisdom.

When you date someone who's from a different walk of life than you, you gain an entirely new view of the world.

You learn all about their food, their religion and their values.

In Australia and Europe, relationships often come out of groups of friends, which I’d assume equals #instantapproval. One of my buddies took a girl he was dating for only two weeks on a family vacation, and we’ve laughed about it ever since. But why do we generally wait so long to bring her home? The underlying reason we bring her home to meet the parents is to get their approval for possible marriage. Not only do immediate family members stay close, but distant relatives do as well.
