I'm a MN of Finnish descent, from a very conservative church & part of a very large family.

DH is from CA, youngest of 3 (his siblings are 10 & 12 years older so he grew up almost as an only child).

Trust me, there are culteral differences there. :)

Of course, absolutely nothing wrong with being "just" an average American family.  Many Americans also have a multi cultural background, much more than many people from other parts of the world.

Quoting mcginnisc:

Dh, myself and our youngest are caucasian and our oldest dd is adopted from China.

I was born in Mexico brought here when i was 9 or so. My son's father is hispanic so nothing different than me(not together anymore) My boyfriend now is from a different background than me (African American). I am the only one out of all my family who has dated outside our race. Nothing too big but his family has more than one culture which i love:)

LOL, I love this question! Hmm, Were a bit of a mix culturally. My dh is Puerto Rican, Irish, and German, but born in the USA. I am also born in the USA, and am Irish, Italian, and Russian, Polish Jewish decent. So, our daughter is a mix of both of us. He he. I would love to adopt a child of a different culture!

I'm a European American mutt and my DH is a mix of European American and Native American. Not sure how to answer the question though.


I'm thankful for a hubby that loves me, 4 healthy children, a warm
place to sleep and enough food for our meals... God bless America!

 i am white, my husband is black and our three kids are black and white. my daughter has a daughter my grandaughter who is 3/4 black and 1/4 white and one daughter who is 3/4 white and 1/4 black. my other daughter has a son who is 3/4 black and 1/4 white and she has 2 other sons that are 1/2 hispanic and 1/4 black and 1/4 white. so i would say we are petty diverse.
