Comment on 8 Toxic Relationship Bonds that Look and Feel Like Love by Honeybird45.
#5. The “Exotic” Relationship
I think some people need to stop caring so much about what other people think. I married my first husband because he fitted the “traditional” mold. The marriage was the worst 8 years of my life. This time I intentionally went for someone who does not fit the “traditional” white conservative male my parents and friends expect for me. He is of a different race, religion and culture, and guess what? It’s the happiest I’ve ever been in a relationship. I still have to constantly think about what I say/do because I am afraid that something would be taken the wrong way but I see it as being a huge part of love.
