Hell no, I don't give a fuck about what my parents think (have never done) and besides my parents don't have any problems with any race (my brother is happily married to a chinese woman and have a healthy young boy ^^.)

My parents are interracial. Me and my boyfriend are interracial. It's the best for human's evolutionary success. I don't care if the world is against me, I love my boyfriend for who he is, not what he is.

It has happened to me, I was dating a maylaysian guy, my mom seriously disaproved, but I kept dating him, though it put a serious amount of pressure on our relationship forcing us to split
But I learned a lesson that we can not please everyone and we also need to be aware of the pressure people put on you and learn to cope with it.

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.

I'm sorry if I offended you in any way, I didn't mean that ALL people in the US opt to put/abandon their parents in a nursing home... you can never generalize. Neither neither did I look down or disrespect the US culture.

I live in the US, I'm a nursing student and I have worked in a nursing home before and, believe me, there are cases when children forget about their parent, it is sad but true. Many people visit just one a week or whats worst, once a month.

I know see the advantages of nursing homes, as I said I have worked in one. I know they offer 24/7 care for the elderly and many other things which can't be provides in a hme setting.

Now, you have to understand that for other countries/cultures nursing homes aren't looked upon in good eyes. In other countries people who put their parent in nursing homes are seen as ungrateful children.

I don't want to move off topic so... again I'm sorry if I offended you in any way.

I'm confused...how did you come to that conclusion? lol
I don't think taking care of a person's parents equate to marrying them.

Err... Well actually, I think I did not state it quite accurately. Actually, when you woo a person, you are wooing his/her mother since for most Asians (most people in the world actually), the mother's approval is a very big factor.

Ah I see.

I think you forgot about the Father. And possibly the grandfather, grandmother, and even the relatives. Heck, her oldest brother might even have a say in it that determines whether or not the marriage would be possibly.

The mother is always the key judge, unless if she is dead.

Grandparents - Probably dead or somewhere far away.

Brother - Err...

Father - Depends on the mom.
