Married into a Danish speaking family
It is said that when you marry, you marry the family
Falling in love is about feelings and intimacy but establishing a successful marriage requires continued acceptance of each other along with their families, just as they are.
Accepting your partner’s family, culture and language is necessary to continue to love, live and explore life together.
In New Zealand, many other cultures co-exist within this country. The Danish community may be small but the traditions, especially of festive days, food and drink as well as the Danish language is strong.
It can be overwhelming to be confronted with a different culture and language in one’s own country. This is the challenge to be explored, embraced, and enjoyed.
