We had many hours to get to know each other. By the time 3 days had gone by, we knew we were on the same wavelength, despite coming from two different continents, cultures, and speaking two different languages (I spoke hers better than she spoke mine).
No way it would have gotten anywhere if one of us had been a racist or (in her case, since she is German) a Nazi sympathizer.
That was 42 years ago. We were both 22. Now, at 64, we are still happy together, and still not racist. We still speak German together, but our children are fully bilingual.
