Do you believe a romantic relationship can be developed without a sufficient communication?
I heard that international marriages have increased rapidly in the last decade. Thus, I have some friends whose husbands are from other countries, which are mostly English speaking countries.
As far as I'm concerned, there are two types of wives. The first group of wives has still kept studying English diligently. The other group of wives reconciles (resigned) themselves to their circumstances, and doesn't spare even a few minutes to study.
I'm going to introduce a lady, who is in her 30s, married to a British man, with a baby. She always surprises me when she lets me know how hard she has been studying English. The funny thing of how she does it is, after having dinner, she shuts the door and practices English pronunciation diligently. She said that she feels embarrassed letting her husband hear her pronunciation practice. Needless to say that her English is already amazing, but still, she sets a high standard so as to have better communications with her husband. I am impressed.
I hope that she is not an exception out of other international couples.
Today, I brought up this topic because I have been wondering if you can build a good relationship with your partner if there is language barrier.
I have met some English teachers from English speaking countries, and they took their Japanese girl friend for granted. No offense, but I doubted that they really love each other, because some of the girls don't have enough English speaking skills, which some teachers say doesn't matter. Is that true?
It's actually none of my business, yet, some questions cross my mind from my increased curiosity.
Can they really establish a good relationship despite language barrier?
In my view, a good communication is crucial in any relationship, and it's the greatest gift that humans were given in the arena of human relations.
