Chatting, having video calls from time to time on dating sites is, sure enough, an excellent opportunity to know your mail-order bride better, learn about her ambitions and plans in life, find out common interests and so on.
However, the real life of a married couple comprises much more diverse kinds of interaction. You will never learn online how to:
- talk to your mail-order bride (now wife) after she failed at work
- ask her to clean the bathroom, which floor is covered with longs hairs of hers
- ask her to take out the trash when you forgot to do it yourself, etc.
And there are much more domestic and other routine issues, about which you never thought when chatting with your mail-order bride online , but which can make your relationship a little messed up.
Here are tips on how to live in a marriage with a mail-order bride, so that two of you would have a happy life.
1. Connect online and offline
To live happily in a marriage with a mail-order bride, you will have to make sure everything that you talked about online (either by emailing or via video calls), comes to your real life.
Dedicate your time to reminiscing together those romantic moments, when both of you used to text each other out of the blue, saying sweet things. Reread your messages, and try to remember all little details that made you connected.
2. Keep in mind your aspirations
Do you remember her plans for life that she disclosed to you on a dating site? She wants to find a new job, get a degree, give birth or launch a business? Help her to achieve these goals in real life!
3. Be ready for malicious talks
Unfortunately, not in every country marrying a mail-order bride is considered to be normal, so be ready that people around you will start rumoring, condemning your choice according to their stereotypes.
Make sure you discuss it with your new wife and make her feel comfortable. Nothing should separate two of you.
4. Brace for cultural differences popping up
When talking online, you probably thought that both you and your mail-order bride are open-minded and ready to accept each other in any situation.
However, everyday life may expose you to the odd habits that each of you has and show your true cultural mentalities. For instance, she might be used to eating extremely spicy food, or it might be outrageous for her to kiss in public.
It is especially going to be challenging if you are of different religions. But no worries, if there’s true love, you will find a common language.
5. Remember that you got each other for a better life
Why do people start online dating? Perhaps, that’s because they aspire to fresh, unprejudiced and even exotic relationships. So cherish this attitude in both of you!
International and interracial couples always win as they continuously learn new things about each other and each other’s cultures so make sure you treat this peculiarity as a benefit. And remember, that two of you are going to have adorable children!
