INTERRACIAL/INTERCULTURAL MARRIAGE: HAITIAN MAN AND INDIAN WOMAN
THE PRYVES LOVE STORY
HOW WE MET
Unlike the common love stories in the millennial lifestyle we did not meet online. Instead it was at work where bonds are formed with less pressure over hours of working together synergistically towards one goal. Getting to know each other at work made it a great way for the both us to learn about each other. Because we were forced to learn about each other first instead of the: “Hey you are cute, do you wanna get a coffee… are you a Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks kinda person?”
BEING IN AN INTERRACIAL/INTERCULTURAL MARRIAGE
Being an interracial couple, I’m from Haiti and Priya was adopted from India to an interracial couple. In essence, we are almost the definition of diverse when it comes to blended families. Everything from: language, rituals, religions, food, and dress has been a learning process for both sides of the family. To say the word blessed would be an understatement. Both sides of the family have accepted the union with more than open arms and family events are something out of an unwritten movie that could be on Lifetime called “Love at First Spice”.
If I had to name something that makes me feel a part of this beautiful union it would have to be how her family includes all of us in the traditions and ceremonies. I could have prayed for a perfect partner and I may not have gotten this close. Not only am I married to my soulmate, partner in crime, best friend but our union is fully supported by family from all over the world.
Wow, such a warm and heartfelt story from the Pryves. And congratulations again on your little one! It is an aspiration for many of us in an interracial/intercultural relationship to know such immediate acceptance and love.
