Mixed Matches: How to Create Successful Interracial, Interethnic, and Interfaith Relationships Paperback – 1 February 1995
Enhance your purchase
Over time, the reserve of a Protestant wife can seem like emotional withholding to her Jewish husband, whose openness seems intrusive to her. An Asian father may feel his children need more discipline, while his American wife thinks they have it harder than she did. A black Trinidadian man is excited about the opportunities in the United States, while his Detroit-born black girlfriend thinks he's naive about racism. The methods in Mixed Matches have helped these and many other couples approach each other compassionately, teaching them to "translate" their different styles of expression and negotiate successful resolutions. Dr. Crohn also offers practical advice on how couples can confront prejudice and stereotypes, deal with in-laws, and help children achieve a sense of identity in a bicultural family.

In chap 2, I was so glad to read the paragraph that covered "just because you desire a relationship outside of your culture or race, does not mean that you have low self esteem or are marrying for financial gain. As the chapter explains, people desire relationships with someone outside of their race for many reasons, some good, some not so good. Chap 2 covers how some individuals who desire a stereotype of another race may end disappointed (you'll have to read the examples in the book).
And both individuals in an interracial marriage/relationship are usually educated (Just like I thought).
The book also offers insight into how a person brought up in a different culture may see or respond to a situation differently than you would.
Also good advice for dealing with family members & friends when marrying someone of a different race or culture. The book is a must read for any individual involved in or considering a relationship/marriage with someone of a different race. Keep it as a guide. I love it.
The language and the advicing in this book are awesome for mixed matches.
Shipping was very fast and the book is in excelent condition!!
