That is very different in Asia. When you marry, you are also marrying his/her mother. Many Asians also try to keep the tradition of taking care of their parents when they get old. Unlike Americans and other westerners who leave their old and ill parents at nursing homes, many Asians prefer to look after them with care.

Why? Because your parents took care of you, fed you, and raised you. Any amount of money will not be enough to pay them for giving you a life.

i see... :blush:

i didnt meant it that you would abandon your parents in a nursing home, im also against that (im not american btw). abandoning you parents is a big no no for me.

no, im not an ingrate child, i just think that in your priority list. the family you started (your children) is on top of the family that was given to you (your parents).

i believe that you dont have to live with you parents to be able to take care of them, you can live in a separate house and visit them every day or as often as you can. as i said before, abandoning them is a big no-no.


I CAN'T SPEAK FOR OTHER WESTERN COUNTRIES, BUT IN AMERICA, JUST BECAUSE YOU PUT YOUR PARENTS IN A NURSING HOME DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE ABANDONING YOUR PARENTS! most choose to go to a senior citizen facility because they don't want the upkeep of a house, need professional medical assistance, or like to be independant. most parents still live or move in with their adult kids when they are unable to take care of theirselves anymore. most homes today are built with mother-in-law suites(a second master bedroom on first/main floor with en-suite bathroom). most families can't afford to pay for their parents to be in a nursing home, especially if they have kids. But, if you have a sick parent and you need to have both you and your spouse work, just to survive, then a nursing home is sometimes the only option. stop being so biased towards the west. you want westerns to respect your culture and traditions but then you look down on us in the same way. different doesn't mean inferior.
and my family doesn't care who you marry as long as he treats you right. although they would prefer that they be college-educated and a christian.

Yes, I would continue dating that person, as I am currently dating him.

I'm South Korean, he's Indian, and we've been dating for 17 months.

I would continue dating the person I love, but if my parent were like that, I would get afraid, I mean for how long would you continue to date someone whose parents hates you? That would feel Really uncomfortable :/

While that probably wouldn't happen with me, probably, after telling them how stupid racism is

I'm actually kind of scared of this because I'm going to Japan soon to live, and in America I've rarely seen couples that are Asian men with white women. .....Will someone love me?

Well, it would depend on the person I'm dating. If he's really worth it, then I wouldn't care what my parents thought. I'd still date the person. But if he's not even worth speaking for, forget it!

I don't think my parents care that I'm dating a German guy. They've never mentioned anything and have never said that they wanted me to date someone with the same ethnicity as us.
Posted 8/9/08
actually that happened to me.
my dad doesn't want me to date anyone who isn't white.
i was dating a guy whose laotian and my dad flipped shit.
i didn't break up with him because of my dad though.

Pft. You'll find someone in due time. There's people out there that's willing to take a chance and try something new/different.

Well, I wouldn't give a damn if my parents liked or disliked the woman I choose. But by just observing my parent's marriage, I would prefer it if my parents liked my wife and my wife's parents liked me. In the future, there will be less problems.

I think my parents WILL dislike anyone I'd date. But I wouldn't care. So what if he would not "from my race," half-breed, poor, etc.? As long as I like/love him, that's all that matters.
