A warm welcome back to a new year and a new issue for GOLDENROOM Online Journal for Cross Cultural Relations.

And what could be a more heartfelt return than this month’s issue theme of ‘Love and Relationships’.

Our cover story this month is one of love across caste boundaries and comes from Premnath Sambavaar who is still faithfully waiting for the day his wife, Sindhu is returned to him.  We examine the case of another family, this time in the United Kingdom who were also bound and determined to prevent their sister having a Mixed ‘race’, Mixed faith, same-sex relationship, in our article From The Bench, ‘The case of the exemplary cross cultural family’.

On a joyful note, we welcome contributor Tim Sullivan. Tim has been married for thirty years to his Japanese wife, Kumuri, so they are well qualified to share some essential tips for cross cultural marriages in ‘Married to an Alien. Can Cross Cultural Love Conquer Culture?’. And DHANAK in India will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with a gathering of over 300 Inter Faith couples.

To be even more relationship savvy peruse the hard hitting research of Ben Acheson on the difficulties adoptees have in forming healthy relationships. Or pick up GOLDENROOM’s recommended read this month, from Dr. Phil McGraw on fixing your relationship with yourself and your partner. On the political and human rights front we have conducted some bold research in: ‘Strange Bedfellows. Homosexuality, Homoeroticism and Ultra Nationalist Movements’.

We expect that a few cross cultural matches will likely be made at Chef Ali Amla’s Indian Cookery Course and also have advice for Great First Dates from GOLDENROOM Dating. . A three month GOLD membership with GOLDENROOM Dating is still only £59.70 so making a cross connection couldn’t be easier. If you aren’t single then perhaps consider buying this for a friend. After all doesn’t everyone like to travel to a wedding abroad?

And finally, please take a moment to nominate GOLDENROOM at the National Diversity Awards, so that we can continue to help you and yours celebrate your Cross Cultural relationships.

Kind Regards,

Dr. W.J.Tuinstra
