5 Women on the Triumphs and Challenges  of Their  "Inter-African" Marriage

5 Women on the Triumphs and Challenges of Their "Inter-African" Marriage

I recall that I started this blog hoping to write a lot on inter-ethnic marriages, stemming from my experience. So I talked about it briefly in my second blog post and over time shared some more in-depth, like analysing my culture shock on kneeling, our cross-cultural traditional wedding, and answering a few questions about our union that we got asked all the time. But I didn’t have that much to say and I moved on to interviewing other inter-ethnic Nigerian couples—those features were very popular.

In the middle of these interviews, I realised that while many people talk about “inter-ethnic” marriages within a particular country as well as “inter-racial” marriages, I hadn’t seen much discourse around “inter-African.”

That piqued my curiosity. So I set out to as usual find answers by hearing from inter-African couples. But it wasn’t only I who was curious. When we put the call out on Twitter, it went viral (okay, viral for our standards). I’m excited to have 5 amazing women share with us. From Ethiopia to Kenya, Uganda to Nigeria, Ghana to Zambia, we get a glimpse of inter-African marriages—the triumphs and the challenges!


Louisa Olafuyi

#TheOlafuyis18(White)-136.JPG

My name is Louisa Olafuyi, and my husband is Oladele Olafuyi—Dele for short. We’ve been together for six years, and married for six months. I’m Ugandan (born in Uganda, but raised in the UK). Dele is Nigerian, born and raised. We are both very proud of our heritage and describe ourselves as “Africa enthusiasts,” as we try to get involved in conversations, activities, and community groups invested in promoting a more progressive Africa. We currently live in Cambridge, UK, but hope to relocate back to continent someday.

Dating and marriage

We met in London in 2013. Dele relocated from Lagos to London for work, and I was already working in London as a researcher. It was one of the hottest summers in years. I remember the first time we spoke on the phone, Dele was on his way to Silverstone to watch the F1, and I was running a successful lifestyle blog, so between our busy schedules, we agreed to do lunch at Bella Italia in Covent Garden. I felt very comfortable during our date and happy that he wasn’t coming across as “too keen.” I loved that we both worked in marketing and had ambitious plans for our future. I thought to myself, “hmmm, he’s a keeper!”

Eventually, Dele had to relocate back to Nigeria for work, so we spent three years long-distance. I travelled to Nigeria for the first time in 2014 and I’ve been back four times since. Dele visited me in the UK frequently, and into Uganda after our engagement.

He proposed in Dubai, at the top of the Burj Khalifa. We had discussed marriage, so I wasn’t surprised that he proposed, but I was surprised when he proposed, as I was meant to be spoiling him for his birthday. It was a very magical moment, and our friends in Dubai were involved in the planning, I had no idea!

Planning a cross-cultural wedding

inter-african marriage

Our wedding theme was “East meets West.” We decided to have it in Uganda, as this worked for both of our families, and we knew not everyone would be able to travel to the UK. We wanted our wedding to represent not only our union, but a union of cultures. So, we had a traditional Ugandan wedding, which included some Nigerian touches. For our white wedding, we had a Christian church ceremony, followed by Ugandan traditional dancers in at the reception, and Nigerian-themed after party.

inter-african marriage

Dele’s family made a great effort to learn words and phrases in my local language, and bringing so much vibrancy and playfulness to our sometimes, conservative traditional Ugandan customs. My family also did our best to make jollof rice and pepper soup! Family played a huge part in the success of our wedding. Sure, there were challenges along the way, but ultimately, the experience has shown us how important family is, and having their support and blessing on our special day meant so much to us.

One of the best things we agreed on from the start was to enjoy the process and be at peace with each other, no matter how stressful it got. We never let planning the wedding get in the way of our relationship. This was key, and I would recommend all soon-to-be couples to keep this in mind and never lose sight of the end goal, a happy marriage, as a wedding is just for a day!

Plans for naming children and teaching them about both cultures

We are expecting a baby boy soon, so we’ve been going back and forth with the baby names. We’ve (tentatively) agreed on a Yoruba first name, and I’m happy with this as I’ve always wanted my children to have African names. However, there are some names Dele has suggested, that I simply can’t pronounce because of my British accent, but we’ve narrowed them down to a mutually agreed shortlist. It’s all about striking a balance and compromise.

Unfortunately, I can’t speak my mother tongue, but Dele speaks Yoruba, so he is going to have to try and teach us both. We already have a trip to Uganda planned for Christmas 2019 and intend to visit both our countries at least once a year, so our son can be as connected to his culture as possible. I believe that knowing and having confidence in where you come from, and knowledge of the richness of your heritage is so important to knowing and having confidence in who you are.

Advice for any contemplating an inter-African marriage

You can’t underestimate how much culture shapes your personality and expectations. I’m Ugandan and British, and Dele Nigerian, so ultimately, we have three very different cultures to accommodate. These cultures influence the big and small things from food choices, to the type of programmes we like to watch, and ultimately how we plan and organise our household.

What we consider most important, however, is that despite our cultural differences, mutual respect and love should be the basis of our relationship. These values helped us overcome all our cultural differences, and they are values we hold till today. We make sure that everything we do and say towards each other, comes from a place of love, as pride has no place in our home.


 Okwuchi Nyarko

okwuchi-inter-african marriage

I’m Nigerian (Igbo by tribe) and fortunate to have lived in 3 major geopolitical zones of Nigeria - North, South West, and the East. Growing up in these parts exposed me to tribal sentiments, but also the beauty of other cultures and languages. I did not have direct exposure to  other African cultures prior to meeting my husband, save for what I got through movies and what I dug up on Google.

I am the CFO of a Nigerian investment firm and have been married for 5 years.

My husband Stephen is Ghanaian and Nigerian and has lived in both countries, so his culture shock is minimal on both sides.On exposure to inter-African marriages

I did not know of any. Even inter-tribal marriages were a handful. Maybe I saw some in movies, but I never had an inkling that it would someday be me.

Dating and marriage

We met in my NYSC year in Sokoto while he was an intern Pharmacist. A mutual friend told him to come look me up as an impersonator had called me, claiming to be Stephen and had asked to come visit. Before then, I only knew our friend had an old roommate who worked in the town, so I thought I was speaking to his roommate.

The impersonator showed up at my lodge several times when I was away and I had to call my friend to call his guy to order. Meanwhile, the real Stephen was across town minding his business. We had to arrange a meeting so that I would know him and plan how to intercept the impersonator.

That first meeting was the beginning of several long conversations and a subsequent relationship.

(PS: We never did catch the impersonator.)

For him it was love at first sight, meanwhile busy with my professional exams, I had friend-zoned him. He cut to the chase from day one that he was looking to marry me,   so we just worked towards that together.

I loved that we could have meaningful conversations on major life issues and we talked a whole lot. He also had Jesus as the centre of his life and that was a big deal for me. Another big one was being my major cheerleader. We would talk about my exams, work functions, deadlines, and he would basically harass me to do them excellently.

We both chose my engagement ring together and I was absolutely shy about him going on bended knee in public, so that part never happened.

Challenges and family concerns during courtship

Having dated/courted for 5 years, our parents accepted our relationship for what it was. Initial concerns were about the physical distance between the two countries, and the differences in culture (that were even hard to appreciate at that time). They feared that their dear daughter would be whisked off to another country immediately after wedding and they worried what nationality their grandchildren going to claim. But love did overcome at last.

Planning a cross-cultural wedding

We are a very  'practical' pair and were not too concerned about the  culture mesh at the ceremonies. My husband wanted to wear the Igbo/Niger Delta style top with beads and I was just too happy and tired to start changing clothes from one tribe to another, so we opted for the Igbo style at the traditional and Ghanaian fabric at thanksgiving service.

Because we had family from Ghana, Ghanaian dishes were served at  the traditional wedding too.

On intriguing Ghanaian customs

Vigour and colour, especially reflected in the popular Kente fabrics. Also, the high level of hygiene—cleaning after yourself always. I joke that in the village they could cause erosions by frequent sweeping.

On mixing local cuisines

My best dish is waakye which is absolutely delicious and a favourite Ghanaian comfort food. It's the first dish I must have once I step into Ghana. I haven't tried to cook it on my own though.

I have also had groundnut soup, banku, kokonte, and dokunu, but waakye is my first love.

Naming children and teaching them about both cultures

Our kids have names from all the cultures. That is not negotiable as they have to be able to identify with their roots.

We make a conscious effort to ensure they learn the language by speaking it with them. We also regularly visit the villages and places of historical importance. Also, we plan to expose them to relevant literature and documentaries to make them culturally aware.

The best and most difficult parts about being married to a different African

The most difficult would definitely have been the Ghanaian cuisine.  But, God bless my husband—he has not been demanding in this regard at all despite his love for Ghanaian food.

okwuchi inter-african marriage

Ghanaian culture is similar to most Nigerian cultures. So I appreciate respect for elders and authority.

A positive “culture shock”

I remember thinking, “how is Ghana so clean and orderly?”

On speaking the other’s native language

My husband knows some Igbo and uses them occasionally. I know a little Twi used in greeting and Ghanaian slangs.

I often call my husband by his Ghanaian name. He knows I am upset with him when I call him by his first name, Stephen. He calls me Anike (Yoruba for “the cherished one”),  Yaa (Ashanti for “female child born on Thursday”), or Makunmamu toffee (Ghanaian for “toffee of my heart”).

Advice for any contemplating an inter-African marriage

In this century, the world has become really  smaller. With more exposure to other cultures, more marriages across countries will inevitably happen.  If it is true love it will break down boundaries (which are more mental than physical. Give love a chance.


Mekdes Assefa

Ethiopian and Kenyan wedding.jpg

My name is Mekdes Assefa. I’m Ethiopian and grew up in Addis Ababa Since 2013, I’ve been married to David, who’s a Kenyan and we have a beautiful 4-year-old girl.  I am an educationist with specific interest in girls’ and women’s empowerment. I have also an immense interest in children’s welfare and rights. I currently work as a facilitator, researcher, and digital communication coordinator at a local NGO. My husband owns and runs a small business.

On exposure to inter-African marriages

While growing up I didn’t see many cross-African marriages. However in my late teens, I found out that an in-law of mine was married to a Congolese man. I never met him, but that was the first close encounter I ever had with cross-African marriages.

Dating and marriage

We met through a social media platform called HI5 way back in 2007.  I’d had multiple pen friends from all over the world, and after we met online, we started to write letters and email each other. Penpalling was my all-time favorite hobby.

My husband too loved pen palling and interacting with people from different parts of the world. He always had a passion and interest in Ethiopia since he was in primary school. In 2008, we met in person when David visited Ethiopia. And after then, he kept coming back for long holidays. I and another Ethiopian friend of his kept hosting him every time he visited. We used to call and talk to each other very often and kept writing letters. One thing led to the other and we finally decided to date each other.

On July 22, 2010, David, his other Ethiopian friend , my best friend and my cousin planned  a surprise engagement dinner.

We decided not to get married right away since it meant I had to relocate and I still needed to do my master’s degree. David was understanding and patient as he valued my education, so we postponed it till 2013. During that time, I visited Kenya (in 2010 and 2011) and met with his family.

Challenges during courtship

The main challenge was the long distance relationship that we were in. Cultural difference was not that of a challenge at that time.

Meeting the families

Both families did not have any reservations since we both introduced them prior to any engagement. David’s family is also multicultural and he has siblings who have spouses from Malawi, Nigeria, America, and Tanzania.

Planning a cross-cultural wedding

We have not yet had a white wedding. We did a civil wedding. In our case, the officiating traditions were  Ethiopian. One of those was Shimgelina, which is when the guy send elders to ask the parents for their daughter’s hand in marriage. It all went very well.

On intriguing Kenyan customs

Every tradition/culture has its own pros and cons, but as an Ethiopian what intrigued me the most was their funeral arrangement and burial tradition. Ethiopians bury their loved ones in a cemetery (mostly designated churches and mosques), but Kenyans bury in their ancestral home. That still gives me the chills. Furthermore, most burials in Ethiopia are done within 24 hours, yet here in Kenya it could take more than two weeks before a person is buried. Funerals can also be very long, expensive, and emotionally draining.

On mixing local cuisines

I love ugali with traditional/local vegetables and the signature delicacy of tilapia Fish which is the staple food of the people in this region. I have even learned to enjoy eating and cooking ugali. I still can’t stand the so called mrenda vegetable (which is also a local delicacy too), maybe because of its slippery nature, but I’ve been told it has a lot of nutritional values. Maybe with time I’ll get to enjoy it.

Naming children and teaching them about both cultures

We use Ethiopian names as the first name. Then the middle name (rarely use it in Ethiopia) and last name come from the dad. So, I chose my daughter’s  first name and my husband chose the middle name.

Literally, my daughter’s mother tongue is Amharic (Ethiopian). I suggest all women in inter-African marriages to teach their kids the mother tongue. In my case, she speaks fluent Amharic and English and is now picking up Swahili too. Language is not only knowledge but also a skill—the more language kids learn, the more beneficial it is.

Both parents can teach their kids their respective mother tongues, and the earlier they start the better. So as a minimum we expect our daughter to master at least four languages: English, Swahili, Dholuo, and Amharic. We hope that she will pick maybe two or three more along the way.

We visit my family in Ethiopia at least once a year. My family also visits us here in Kenya, and that way our daughter experiences and appreciates both cultures and traditions.

The best and most difficult parts about being married to a different African

The challenge I have faced is some cultural clashes. Luckily, Ethiopia shares a lot of tradition with Kenya. However, there have been some religion-related clashes.

The best part is that you get to expand your knowledge of a new society.  Exposure to different culture is also a good plus.

You also get to enjoy good practices as well, such as harambe. Harambe is a tradition where by you contribute cash to different events (could be wedding, birth of a child, funeral etc)

On speaking the other’s native language

We currently do, but not so fluently. However, both of us can understand a little bit of each other’s language, and we both are trying to learn more and more.

Advice for any contemplating an inter-African marriage

We believe that there is no good or bad culture. Our motto is to respect other people’s culture even if we do not agree to some of the things. But in general, the diversity from both cultures makes it more fun and rich. We are closer—culture wise.

Most people are biased towards cross-cultural marriages because of fear of the unknown culture, but once exposed to the culture we come to realize that we have so much more in common than we do differences. Just have an open mind and start exploring. Most importantly, learn and appreciate the diversity.


Ijeoma Kola inter african marriage

I was born in Port Harcourt, Nigeria and grew up in New Jersey, and my husband Jonathan was born and raised in Nairobi. I am Igbo and Jonathan is Luo. I’m a public health researcher and a blogger, and he is an engineer. We’ve been married for almost two years!

On exposure to inter-African marriages

Growing up, I didn’t see a lot of examples of anything other than Nigerian marriages , and most of my parents’ friends were Igbos married to other Igbos. In Jonathan’s family, most of his parents’ generation are married to other Luos, but amongst his cousins there are a couple of inter-African and interracial marriages.

Dating and marriage

We went to college together, were friends for the first couple of years and started dating in our senior year. We dated long distance for four years, which was incredibly difficult but forced us to have really real conversations about our future. Then we got engaged while on vacation in Milan—my husband Google translated some phrases in Igbo but I couldn’t understand his pronunciation so I had no idea what he was trying to say.

Meeting the families

My husband’s family was incredibly chill and welcoming of our marriage. My family was a lot more resistant. The conversation revolved around cultural differences and them wanting me to marry someone closer to our culture (or really someone they knew), but after all was said and done, we realized they were just scared of losing their daughter and used culture as an excuse.

Planning a cross-cultural wedding

Ijeoma-Kola inter african marriage

Nigerian weddings are a big deal for the family, with several different events and cultural traditions. In my husband’s culture, the main cultural tradition is to do a small family gathering called an ayie as the introduction ceremony, so we did that a year before the wedding. Then on the wedding day, we had a Nigerian traditional wedding, a Christian ceremony, and a reception. During the reception we had a presentation of Kenyan cultural items.

On mixing local cuisines

Kenyan food is VERY different from Nigerian food. There’s no spice! I do enjoy Kenyan chapatis and vegetables like sukuma wiki. I’m not a huge fan of some of the bitter greens.

Plans for naming children and teaching them about both cultures

We’re planning on giving our kids English, Luo, and Igbo names, making sure that all our cultures are represented.

Language is something we talk about often because neither Jonathan or I are 100% fluent in our native tongues, though we can both understand most words. Luckily we have parents alive on both sides, so we plan to encourage our parents to speak to the kids in Igbo and Luo. They’ll learn English in school!

On speaking the other’s native language

We’re both trying to learn each other’s language(s)! It’s a bit more difficult for me since Jonathan and his family speak two languages, Swahili and Luo, whereas my family only speaks Igbo.

Advice for any contemplating an inter-African marriage

I was actually quite surprised by the cultural similarities between us, even though we’re from opposite sides of the continent. Most importantly, as long as someone is respectful of your own heritage and is eager to learn about it, I don’t see why a relationship between people from two different African countries can’t work.


Lynnette Mambwe

inter-african marriage

My name Lynnette Mambwe, nee Antwi-Boasiako. Both my parents are Ghanaian. I was not born in Ghana but I lived in Ghana for about 15 years cumulatively, so I identify with some Ghanaian culture (specifically Ashanti). I moved to Toronto, Canada at age 7 where I lived with my mother until I was 13 before returning to Ghana for 8 years.

Then, I returned to Canada at the age of 21 and finally settled in Ottawa, Ontario. Sad to think about it now, but until I moved to Ottawa I had not been as exposed to other cultures let alone thought of ever marrying someone from another culture.

My husband, Tony is a Zambian, born and raised. He came to Canada in 2008 as an international student, completed a college diploma and is currently working in his field of study as a civil engineer technologist. We are newly-weds; married for 5 months and loving it so far.

On exposure to inter-African marriages

Growing up, cross-African marriages were close to non-existent for me. I can say that I had never heard or seen anyone close to me marry another African. Especially in Ghana, it was almost taboo to even think about it, not to talk of considering the possibility. I believe this stemmed from the subtle, but not so subtle cultural and tribal “undertones” in Ghana. An attempt to marry from a different tribe was so frowned on that it didn’t leave the slightest opportunity to think about marrying from another African country.

Dating and marriage

Tony and I met at our local church in Ottawa. After a few weeks of attending the church, Tony’s roommate at the time and best friend introduced me to Tony. Then, I began to attend the youth group meetings of which Tony was a part.

I remember getting really irritated with him for asking my name repeatedly. I don’t hold it against him as much now that I’ve realized he’s just not the greatest with names.

It was nothing like “love at first sight” for us, but as we continued to spend more time in the same circle, we became more drawn to each other. But that same year, Tony landed a job in Prince George, British Columbia, and we all said our goodbyes—that was that. Or, so I thought.

While Tony was in BC, he would often call friends in Ottawa just to stay in touch. Let's just say that the phone calls between us became more frequent than usual. After a year and a half, Tony returned to Ottawa. By this time, he’d already asked me out and we had been dating exclusively for about 6 months. All together, we dated and courted for 2 years until Tony popped the question on July 2, 2017 while we were on a Canada Day weekend holiday with his best friend David and his girlfriend.

The proposal was intimate—exactly as I would have liked it to be if i had the choice. We’d all had dinner that evening. After dinner, the plan was to take photos to document the holiday. Of course, the photo session turned into one of the most memorable moments of my life. I noticed one specific photo was taking longer than expected but just as my patience was slowly turning to frustration, I saw Tony on one knee. I said a bunch of things I hardly remember now but I'm sure had to do with our journey till then (no easy one). I remember crying a lot mostly because I was so surprised (I am the easiest person to surprise) and of course, I said YES!

Challenges during courtship

I don't recall us having too many challenges during our dating and courtship stage, aside our efforts to align our viewpoints and perspectives on life in general. Tony was raised to be a very independent thinker and this was something that I found didn't come so naturally to me. In many instances growing up, I had the liberty (I don't consider it much of a liberty now) of offloading some of my responsibilities and decisions on others. In other words, I allowed other people make a lot of my life-altering decisions, thinking it would spare me the accompanying responsibilities and accountability.

Now, here I was in a relationship with someone who was constantly challenging me to make decisions for myself and question those decisions until I came to the best possible conclusions for myself. We still often have instances where we are on complete opposites of the spectrum (I don't think it is always a bad things), but let's just say we've come to a place where we both understand our respective ways of thinking and always manage to get ourselves to a place of understanding (a middle ground, perhaps).

Meeting the families

Oh where do I start? We faced more challenges with family than either of us anticipated, and they were mainly based on cultural differences. Most of the issues came from my family—my parents specifically, who could not bring themselves to understand how I could even consider marrying anyone who is not Ghanaian.

In hindsight, I can understand (not agree with) their confusion. Though my parents have lived abroad for a long time, exposure or the possibility of exposure to marriages between two different African individuals was almost non-existent or completely ignored, so they didn't have to consider it as an option for any one of their children.

My parents also divorced when I was young, so communication between both of them was on and off for most of my life growing up. They just never seemed to agree on anything for various reasons, until the topic of my marrying a Zambian came up. Then, they suddenly had a reason to agree that my decision was completely wrong based on the different cultural backgrounds of Tony and I—a reason I thought was completely unfair since they had not even met Tony yet.

I returned to them many times with the same request for approval but was met with hostility until I one day I received the closest I could get to an approval from my father. He said, "You're an adult and if this is what you think is best for you, do it." I took it! because I knew that was all I was going to get from him. Meanwhile, my mother still chose to stay indifferent regarding my decision.

I can only say that their responses many time got Tony and I to a place where we second guessed the surety of our decision to get married. In the end, my father did not get a chance to see me get married or even meet Tony (he passed suddenly in April 2018). And my mother—she chose to stay out of the affairs of my decision—handed over all rights to accept my decision to marry Tony to my stepmother who understood the importance of the decision I was taking and supported us throughout. Even after all this, I have no regrets marrying Tony because I know that his being Zambian and not Ghanaian does not make him less of a person.

Planning a cross-cultural wedding

To be honest, Tony and I both tried to prevent too much cultural impact. We both found culture a bit too rigid and overwhelming in some cases, especially when it came to wedding ceremonies. We had been exposed to some of friends' cultural ceremonies and quickly acknowledged that it wasn't quite what we wanted for our wedding.

Despite the push-back, my step-mother was advised by extended family to request the payment of dowry from Tony's family. Though Tony's family are not much of a traditionalists themselves, they agreed that if it was the request of my family, they should oblige and present the amount required. So a week before our wedding day, Tony's parents and siblings who had arrived a couple of days before, came to my mum's house for the customary dowry presentation.

Also, according to Tony's culture, they usually present the parents with a tier of the wedding cake at the wedding reception but we chose rather to present both our parents with gift baskets. This is the most we incorporated from our cultures.

Their take on culture

As alluded to earlier, we try not to be too “cultural” in our ways and try our best not to impose our cultural viewpoints on each other. We rather assess what is ideal for both of us first, whether or not it stems from either culture.

On mixing local cuisines

Tony is not a picky eater. He will eat almost anything as long as it tastes good and he hasn't seen it being too handled. He eats almost everything I make whether or not it's from his culture. I on the other hand was initially hesitant to try his cultural dish, Nshima which is similar to what most West Africans call "fufu." It's often made out of cornmeal, but occasionally, one can add cassava dough for a different feel.

My initial hesitance was not because of the Nshima but because Nshima can be eaten with anything from fish, sausage, and even chicken sauce, if you'd like—together with sauteed kale. I found it so strange that it didn't have a specific sauce that must always be added to it like we have for Ghanaian dishes.

For most Ghanaian dishes, I can tell you exactly the "right" ways to eat it and the "not so right ways," but the open-ended nature of the meal just didn't sit well with me. Long story short, I've tried it enough times now and have ended up really enjoying it. I even now know how to make Nshima (very well actually), to Tony's surprise.

Plans for naming children and teaching them about both cultures

Tony and I have discussed our future children’s names a handful of times. I've suggested some and so has he, but we are convinced that the right names will come up. And when they do, we will know it.

In the Ashanti culture, it is common practice to name your child after the day he/she was born. These names are more or less set in stone and many people in my culture have just gone with it. This is something Tony absolutely does not want for our kids. He thinks it is not original. I've learned to pick my battles in our relationship and this is not one that I'm willing to fight. As long we are both able to come to a healthy agreement on the names we decide on, I’m good.

We definitely acknowledge that it will take intentional efforts if we want our kids to speak either language, especially because neither of us speak the other's language.

The best and most difficult parts about being married to a different African

I think the most challenging part for me is what seems to be the constant judgmental comments that especially the Ghanaian community (whether or not they know me or not) have about my getting married to someone who is not Ghanaian. It's almost a shock when they find out.

The other thing that has been somewhat of a challenge is the language barrier.

The best part for me is the added interest and dynamism it brings to our union. For some reason, I find it really cool to be married to someone who is not from the same country.

Advice for any contemplating an inter-African marriage

I would advise that they don't judge too quickly. Everyone is worthy of love no matter where they come from. As long as the person is willing to love you right and treat you with respect, give that person a chance. An individual can be from the same country, tribe, culture, or community but if they don't treat you right, what is the point of being in the relationship as all? Yes, the dynamic especially when it comes to language might be easier to deal but there is more to marriage than just that. Do not be afraid of the unknown. It might just be a really pleasant surprise.
