This book contains personal experiences of 55 authors of many different nationalities about living with two worlds in one partnership. The authors in these entertaining, insightful and touching stories talk about their love relationships that required crossing cultural frontiers. They look at such questions as: are intercultural marriages really more difficult?; do they have some advantages?; what conflicts can be expected?; what happens to children of bi-cultural marriages?; and how can one keep a sense of identity? These stories not only show the romance and excitement of such relationships but talk about the real-life challenges to be expected, the ups and downs, laughter, tears and peculiar situations.

Review:

Books like Cupid's Wild Arrows are good for our souls. For those who can relate to the situations, reading is cathartic. -- Julia Simpson, Arab News, 1994

For anyone interested in the subject of cross-cultural relationships, this book is a must. For those of us involved in an intercultural relationship, reading this book is like speaking with a dear friend. -- Sue Greutmann, New Roots, 1993

This book should be required reading for anyone contemplating marriage to a person of another culture, particularly if they intend to live in that person's country, as it contains many good tips and warnings. One also gets an appreciation through these stories of the incredible enrichment there is in exposure to another culture, particularly for the children. The book, covering a timely topic, as so many people are married to 'foreigners', contributes a great deal to a better understanding between peoples, so important in today's interdependent world. -- Trudy Boukas, American Citizens Abroad
