What does it mean to have a foot in multiple cultures? Were you and your partner both born in the US? Are you from different regions of the same country? Are you from different social classes, or do you follow different spiritual practices? Did you and your partner grow up speaking different languages at home? Do people look longer at you and your partner trying to figure out why you're together? There are both upsides and challenges to the multicultural life. Through twelve couples' stories, Mixed Blessings gives readers new ideas and tips on how to make multicultural relationships work.
