Description

"Marriage can be the most rewarding and the most challenging of all human relationships, especially an intercultural marriage. Poignant stories, edited by Gloria Hurh, vividly reveal the genuine value of following the inner self as each woman defends her love across racial lines in spite of opposition. Mrs. Hurh's integrative work includes elements of historical, socio-cultural and personal reflections by women who have made a profound contribution to making this world a more harmonious and loving global village." -Inn Sook Lee, Professor-Adjunct, Princeton Theological Seminary Author of Passages to the Inner Self: The Development of Self Integration for Asian American Women Twelve American women tell about their lives married to Korean husbands. Read about how each couple met, their courtship, and their decision to marry. Learn how their families and friends reacted to their relationship, what challenges they faced, and how their families blended two cultures-Korean and American. Understand the compromise involved in a Jewish-Korean marriage, and the struggle of a wife living in Korea whose husband was imprisoned. Know what it was like for one wife to bury her Korean husband and come to terms with his Korean family. Find out how their children fared and their advice for others considering an intercultural marriage. These narrative style stories give a unique view of Korean-American marriages that occurred during the 1960s when interracial marriage was not accepted and many states had anti-miscegenation laws.
