I am an American editor. I am writing this article to share with those dating Chinese girl the joy and happiness of my marriage. Chinese girls are beautiful in appearances and mind. I have married a good woman in Chinaon January 8th, 2008. We are now living a happy life in America. My wife teaches Chinese in a university.
From 2006, I have made up my mind to marry a Chinese girl. On June 5th, 2007 I met a Chinese girl on a Chinese dating site ChnLove. I was first attracted by her photos. She looks very kind and gentle. She was a teacher in primary school. Her smiles are beautiful. Then I began my dating. We chatted online through e-mail for three months(I was very glad that her English is good.). We talked about our interesting things, life in different countries and almost all walks of life. Through the communication I had a good knowledge of her habits, interests and her family and friends, even her students. We seemed to take fancy to each other and we used the love call service. At the beginning of communication on the mobile phone, we were not used to it a little. Because we did not know what to talk. However, we like to hear the voice of the counterpart. Afterwards we began to talk about the culture and customs in America and China and discuss our life purposes and plans. Sometimes she even taught me Chinese and I taught her English. At the end of 2008, we met in Beijing, her home town. I spent Chinese Spring Festival in Beijing with my wife. During the period I learnt more about China and understood her more; we travelled many attractions in Beijing and took many photos. It was at that time that we knew that we are a perfect match for each other and we began to discuss about our marriage. Seeing that her daughter enjoyed herself very much when staying with me her parents agreed to our marriage and gave best wishes to us. Finally we married happily with the best wishes of her family and friends.
After marriage, we learn from each other and are aimed to run a happy marriage. Though we had some problems regarding some special aspects of life we solved them through patient explanation and understanding.(Though the dating site charges for the international dating services I am really thankful for it and the agency staff. After all no pains no gains. I pay money and I gain forever happiness.)
We must know that cross cultural marriage is no difference and no problem as long as two persons love each other earnestly and truly. Love needs understanding, trust, generous spirits and frankness. Love can solve any problems. This saying is also true in the case of cross cultural marriage.
