In an increasingly global and connected world, marriages between spouses of different countries and cultures are on the rise. Marla Alupoaicei, herself wed to a Romanian, helps couples sort through such issues as food, finances, family, and such “hidden” problems as different understandings of what it means to be “on time.” Marla combines real-life stories with expert perspectives and biblical insight for a helpful guide both for those just starting out on the intercultural adventure – and those in the midst of it.

You'll get practical and biblical advice for handling the most common intercultural conflicts, including:
  • Planning your wedding
  • Communication
  • Understanding each other's values
  • Different views of time
  • Agreeing on food
  • Managing finances
  • Intimacy
  • Raising children
  • Handling illness and grief
