How to contend with conflicting cultures

Dr. Louis says if this is a cultural difference, there may be some things you can do to make the other parents more comfortable. “If there are differences in beliefs about the level of involvement in parents choosing the partner, you can get the parents involved in some of the courtship,” says Dr. Louis. She suggests having the bride’s parents meet the groom’s parents “So they feel a little more comfortable with where they come from and what they both mutually bring to the table.”
