After 3 Years of Interviewing International Couples

INTERNATIONAL
Family units may spread all over the world without limitation.
For the past 3 years, I have met many international couples with exchange students and listened to their stories. Statistically, there were many couples of female Japanese and male Western, or male Japanese and female Asian. However, age, how they came to Japan, and how they each think varies so it is quite difficult to explain "This is how international marriages are." But if I were to say what they are, I can say that family units may spread all over the world without limitation.

For example, kids who have an Australian father and a Japanese mother will have two cultures from the beginning. And I am sure they will naturally tell even to their cousins from their father's side and mother's side the different cultures. And maybe the cousins get interested in people from different nationalities because of this and get married. This is a great influence.

Actually when I was interviewing the international couples, their brothers, sisters, and relatives also married someone from a different nationality. And further more, there is a high possibility that kids from those international couples may marry someone not Japanese, nor Australian, like the example above, and I would not think that their parents will not say no to their kids if they want an international marriage.

If there are more people who are broad-minded to international marriage, I think mutual cultural understanding will grow more. And it is a fact that the Ainu people originally lived in Japan and various people came over to Japan to live and they have become Japanese so I think it is nothing special.

I thought that if kids of international couples get well-adapted to the Japanese society and if they could feeling something by playing with the pure Japanese kids, Japan will be much more easier for the foreigners to live.

In our next June edition, we will introduce an international couple who have a great relationship, like we always do.
