Nigerians are rarely comfortable with public display of affection, e.g kissing and verbal declaration of love; and neither are they comfortable with open and public discussions of abortion or sex.

Being grown up in Hungary, Central Europe I found it challenging to accept that my husband is not naturally interested in candlelight dinners, flower giving, romantic walk by the lake or park.

True globalization and modernity and westernisation are impacting the Nigerian culture. In cities across Nigeria, these changes are noticeable; but over all, the effects of these changes are minimal. A Nigerian may be well read, well educated and well travelled, in the end though, he will be still under the influence of his culture.

So how is this culture clash solved in an interracial marriage??

Easy, people marry, not for the curiosity, but because they are bonded and are determined to make a success of the marriage institution; they are bonded by love and faith and a commitment to one another. I always say that marriage is a give and take. We do what you want today and we do as I wish tomorrow.
