    My husband and I have been married for 15 years, bringing together our Mexican and American cultures successfully. Our goal has always been to have “our” culture in our home, the best from each of our backgrounds and personal stories. We have challenged ourselves to be respectful of each other, and we have both explored the language, traditions and nuances that we come from. My life has been blessed and enriched because of my husband’s culture. I believe, though, that many of our differences have been resolved easily because we share our faith.
