My Interracial Marriage: A Conversation With My Husband, Part 1 – IIM 002
I thought it would be appropriate to begin this journey with you by talking about the Indian interracial marriage I know best: my own! Join me for Part 1 of my conversation with my husband Otto about how we met, started dating, and got married. (Note: I refer to this as Episode 1 in the recording, but this is actually Episode 2. Episode 1 is a short introduction to the podcast. Click here to listen to it now.) Here's some of what you can expect to hear in this episode: The decision Otto made at a yoga class that changed his life -- and mine -- forever Why I was initially apprehensive to tell my parents about my new relationship How both of us went from not ever wanting to get married to having two weddings Why Otto refused to let me translate for him when he first met my parents The immediate expectation my parents had for me and Otto How my parents' religious beliefs made them accept Otto without reservation Why our wedding had to be a public affair The differences in attitudes about money in Indian and American cultures And much more!
