Over the past decades, the world has changed a lot. People of different races, colors, cultures, religions, and genders are currently allowed to interact and even get married. For this reason, interracial marriages have become very rampant. Tools like online dating sites have made it possible for people from different nations, cultures, and races to interact romantically and get married.
Society has become more accepting of interracial marriages. However, interracial marriages still face a lot of challenges. This is the information to find here:
While society has come a long way when it comes to accepting people from different cultures, this is still a big problem for interracial marriages. When two people from different backgrounds decide to get into a relationship, they are often faced with many challenges from their families and friends.
Families especially have a problem if the couples are from different religious backgrounds. Deeply cultural families have a hard time accepting anyone that does not fall in the same cultural category.
This can result in many arguments within the relationship if the couple is unwilling to find a middle ground. Cultural differences can result in a one-sided relationship, and if such couples decide to have kids, they have a hard time agreeing on how to raise their kids. Therefore, one of the biggest challenges faced by interracial marriages in 2021 is cultural differences.

In 2021, people are no longer restricted to dating people with whom they share a common language. With tools like online dating sites where people meet partners from different countries and fall in love, people may end up with partners who speak different languages. Therefore, a big challenge of interracial marriages in 2021 is language barriers. Most of the time, the partners have to learn the other language.
This may not be easy and take a long time. Language barriers in a marriage can make things very difficult. Communication is one of the keys to a healthy and successful marriage. Therefore, maintaining a healthy marriage when you do not speak the same language as your partner can be very challenging.
Even if you know the basic words like greetings, it may not be enough for making a marriage work. Partners end up misunderstanding each other, overreacting, and not getting on the same page. However, if the partners are determined to make the marriage work, they can learn each other’s language or a global language like English for better communication (you can find more information here).
Interesting to know: Many western men go to online dating platforms looking for exotic wives who, most of the time, do not speak the same first language as them.
The art of problem-solving has been a challenge in interracial marriages for decades. More often than not, marriages are plagued with a wide array of issues. This is the main reason why people say that marriage needs a lot of work constantly.
The trick to having a successful and healthy marriage is often proper problem-solving. Since problems like misunderstandings and arguments cannot be avoided in an interracial marriage, the best thing would be to find ways to resolve these problems in the healthiest way possible.
Most of the time, married partners still struggle with finding a balance and a good way to resolve their issues. With different temperaments and characteristics, solving problems can be very difficult. Therefore, partners have to keep working on this aspect throughout their marriage to survive greater challenges like divorce.
Different societal expectations from different cultures
You would think that in 2021, the way society views relationships and marriages would be different. However, some things remain as they have been for decades. For instance, society expects married couples to start having children soon after their marriage. Therefore, couples who choose to do otherwise or not have kids have a really hard time. Families keep raising the question of kids and even people that they do not know on social media.
Note that the way people respond to these issues differs from one culture to the next. For instance, western cultures are more forgiving than their counterparts. This becomes a challenge within the marriage resulting in a lot of arguments and misunderstandings. The society also has several other expectations for married couples. For instance, they expect the man and woman to take on specific roles.
Note that these expectations differ from one culture to another. Therefore, it becomes a challenge for an interracial married couple that chooses to go against the norm. While the husband and wife may be okay with their way of life, the constant scrutiny and pressure from outside can result in marriage challenges.
Did you know? More than 60 percent of married couples are expected to start bearing children a year or two after they get married.
Judgment from others
While times have changed and many people have become more accepting of interracial marriages, there is still an issue of judgment from some people. Some people may not respond well to people from different backgrounds getting together and getting married.
The biggest challenge is that the judgment often comes from people who are close to the couple or their families. This causes a strain in the marriage. If the partners are not careful about what they listen to and how they respond, it may become a significant issue within the marriage.
While many couples face the challenges mentioned above in interracial marriages, it does not mean that the marriages cannot work out. All marriages face different challenges. While the challenges faced by interracial couples may be different from others, they are all part of marriage, and marriages need a lot of work.
Therefore, the wiser thing to do would be to work on the various issues within the marriage and ignore outside noise.
Sometimes, things may get very challenging. However, with help from professionals like marriage counselors, interracial marriages can survive for a lifetime. Note that there are thousands of happy and healthy interracial marriages in existence. This is a testament to the fact that you can marry and get married to anyone.

As robots evolve to do more work around us, the UK-based humanoid robot manufacturer Engineered Arts has infused more human-like facial expressions into one of its robots, which may leave you with an eerie feeling.
In a video posted on YouTube, the robot called 'Ameca' displays various human expressions, like appearing to "wake up" from sleep, as its face shows confusion and frustration when it opens its eyes.

Once awake, 'Ameca' starts looking at its hands and arms, opens its mouth and raises its eyebrows, just like a human does.
At the end of the video, Ameca smiles and holds a welcoming hand out towards the viewer.
According to Engineered Arts, the humanoid bot is currently unable to walk and it is working towards giving it the ability in the near future.
"Designed specifically as a platform for development into future robotics technologies, 'Ameca' is the perfect humanoid robot platform for human-robot interaction," says the company.
The 'Ameca' hardware is a development based on its own research into humanoid robotics and built on its advanced 'Mesmer' technology.

Microsoft has disrupted the activities of a China-based hacking group, gaining control of the malicious websites the group used to attack organisations in the US and 28 other countries around the world.
The Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit (DCU) said in a statement that a federal court in Virginia granted its request to seize websites of the hacking group called 'Nickel', enabling the company to cut off Nickel's access to its victims and prevent the websites from being used to execute attacks.

"We believe these attacks were largely being used for intelligence gathering from government agencies, think tanks and human rights organisations," said Tom Burt, Corporate Vice President, Customer Security and Trust at Microsoft.
Obtaining control of the malicious websites and redirecting traffic from those sites to Microsoft's secure servers will help the company protect existing and future victims while learning more about Nickel's activities.

"Our disruption will not prevent Nickel from continuing other hacking activities, but we do believe we have removed a key piece of the infrastructure the group has been relying on for this latest wave of attacks," Burt said late on Monday.
To date, in 24 lawsuits - five against nation-state actors -- Microsoft has taken down more than 10,000 malicious websites used by cybercriminals and nearly 600 sites used by nation-state actors.
"We have also successfully blocked the registration of 600,000 sites to get ahead of criminal actors that planned to use them maliciously in the future," the tech giant informed.

In some observed activity, Nickel malware used exploits targeting unpatched on-premises Exchange Server and SharePoint systems.
"However, we have not observed any new vulnerabilities in Microsoft products as part of these attacks. Microsoft has created unique signatures to detect and protect from known Nickel activity through our security products, like Microsoft 365 Defender," the company noted.
Nickel has targeted organisations in both the private and public sectors, including diplomatic organisations and ministries of foreign affairs in North America, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Africa. (IANS/SP)
