I am Korean and my husband is Caucasian. Cultural differences-- no. My husband is very open to exploring and learning about my culture. In fact, we are adopting a Korean child, and my husband has been enthusiastic about learning the language and culture to help teach our child.
The biggest problem we face is racism. We see issues on race and racism very differently. He doesn't perceive much of a problem, and when racism does occur, he sees it as an anomoly. I see it as an underlying issue, and have been subjected to racism on several occassions. However, we end up having very lively discussions on the issues, and have both learned a great deal on each other's perspectives.
