Five Things You Should Know About Asian Lady’s Religion
Being in a relationship with an Asian lady is a real pleasure. They’re beautiful, intelligent, and fun to be around. However, you should also be aware of and sensitive to her culture.
As with any form of international dating, you should always be sympathetic to any cultural or religious differences that you encounter. People from around the world have different traditions, different upbringings, and celebrate different things.
One of the main things to be aware of with your Asian lady is that her religion may be different from your own. In fact, as we will explain further down in this article, there is no sure-fire way of knowing what the religion of your Asian lady will be until you ask her.
So, to give you a little more background information, here are five things you should know about your Asian lady’s religion.
Asia has many religions
The first thing to note is that your Asian lady could be from any number of religious backgrounds. Islam and Hinduism are the two largest religions in Asia, but across the continent Buddhism, Christianity, Sikhism, and many more are all common. So, be open-minded and take the time to understand and accept her religion for what it is.
She may not celebrate Christmas
As a result of the above, it may be that some of the traditional annual holidays or celebrations that you’re used to are not as important – or perhaps not even recognized – by the religion to which your Asian lady belongs. Christmas, for example, is not a public holiday in several Asian countries.
Weddings will have different traditions and customs
Key life events such as weddings will also carry different customs and traditions, many of which depend on the religion of your Asian lady. So, if you’re getting married, take the time to explore what will be expected of you and talk through it with your lady.
New Year is not at the end of December
Chinese New Year is a huge event that celebrates the beginning of the traditional Chinese calendar. It is not celebrated, as it is in the western world, at the end of December and many of the celebrations and rituals that come with it are steeped in religious meaning.
Asia is the birthplace of many of the world’s religions
Finally, Asia is actually the birthplace of many religions, including Christianity and Buddhism. It also probably practices more religions across the continent than any other continent in the world, so it’s a fascinating place and one you should definitely show an interest in and discuss with your Asian lady.
