Your modern family
East Meets West
People do judge us. Nobody outwardly says anything but our family and people I used to call friends treat us like we’re strange. All of our friends since getting married are also from other cultures. Spanish, Asian, or other foreign people seem to accept us with no problem. There is a stigma against people who are foreigners or don’t speak English perfectly. Americans look down on her. We both feel it. I see how people treat my wife and realize that I now am a foreigner in America too even though I was born and grew up in America. Our children, luckily, are native speakers and fit in well. Kids have a way of adapting.
