My FI is black, and I'm white. I'm really nervous about our interracial wedding
My mom's side of the family is not very.... cultured. Example, my great gma still says "colored". She is 94 years old and has no filter. My brother is the type of person who is almost TOO comfortable. He will say things that are inappropriate, but think they are ok because he is friends with my FI... And then there's the rest of the family. They are still privvy to the stereotypes, and assume that because someone is of a specific race, they all act a certain way. (If that makes sense without putting it all out there)
Of course it goes the same way with my FI's family too.
We just want everyone to blend as well as we do! Has anybody had an experience similar to this? What kind of things might help our families mesh, or find some common ground?
