Interracial Relationship

I am into a relationship that I prefer to describe as one that transcends differences , culture and color . I am a Vietnam- born Asian who grew up in the United States while my partner is a Caucasian , who was born from American parents and raised in the United States . This life learning essay aims to take a closer look at this interracial relationship experience

to be without religion does not make me appeal to them as a daughter- in -law . In addition to this , HIM ‘s father has bad memories about war and my Vietnamese background reminds him of killings and violence

This view is similar with other people who do not find the relationship acceptable . While interracial relationship is now quite common in the United States , there are still people in the society who do not accept an Asian- Caucasian relationship . Seeing a couple who do not have the same color and looks sometimes results to buzzes and jokes
