Description Interfaith/Intercultural couples are usually aware that they will have to negotiate differences in their religions, but they may be surprised by needing to navigate cultural differences regarding communication, parenting, parents, and their definition of community. Make the process easier by engaging with other couples facing similar questions. Create an outline of how to approach a conversation with your partner that is honest, caring, and supportive. This discussion series will get the conversations rolling! Exchange ideas about such issues as: Holiday Observances – Which holidays will be celebrated in our home? Dealing With Our Families – How will we talk to our parents about our choices? Raising Children – How can we make sure our child is “part” of each of us? Spiritual Concerns – How do we satisfy our needs and recognize our partner’s? Cultural Differences – How do communication styles and familial expectations impact our relationship? This is one of the most meaningful and powerful things you can do for your relationship. I encourage every couple to participate in a couples group.
