After a string of good and bad / relationships, I have given into pressure from my family to marry a Pakistani girl.
The affable Tabriz, who teaches elementary school back in Stockton, does his best to guide us through the occasion and share how it feels to be caught between his parents' cultural expectations and his own sense of himself as a 21st century American.
He admits that during the prolonged wedding ceremonies his mind was blank for much of the time.
A personwho does not completely understand my world, this world.
A language barrier which acts like a dark thick smoke between us.
Following Tabriz and Sumra gives me a whole new insight on what my marriage may be like. My way of life and my outlook has been American since I got here.
