In the picture I can see a wedding scene. In the centre we can see the bride and the groom probably walking out of the church. The bride is wearing a typical, white wedding gown and a white veil on her head. She might be Japanese or Chinese and she is very pretty. The groom looks very European. He is tall and well-built. He is wearing a black suit and a white shirt. He looks really smart. They both have white flowers. The weather is beautiful: it’s warm and sunny and people are wearing summer dresses. On the left some people – family and friends – are standing and looking at them. On the right there are photographers taking pictures. There is a very positive and optimistic atmosphere about this picture.

1. How do you think this couple are feeling on their wedding day?
I am sure these people are feeling really good – you can see it on their faces. It seems they must be deeply in love and they are very happy. The man, althoght he is probably in his forties, looks like a teenager who is happy because he is having a date with soembody he really likes. The woman is looking at her husband with admiration. It’s a perfectly happy scene.
2. What are the advantages and disadvantages of marrying a person from a different country or culture?
Well, there are some disadvantages. It must be simply difficult to understand the cultural differences and to accept the need for compromise. Also, one of the partners is a stranger in the country where they live, so it is always more difficult for him or her to be accepted and to live abroad. He or she will miss his or her family and might have problems in communicating and for example finding a job. On the other hand, such a relationship can be richer because the partners bring in their cultures and customs. It is interesting to be together and they learn a lot – so they don’t get bored.
