I'm half Taiwanese and half Korean , and my wife is American, in fact she's white. We met in Sophomore year in high school. Back then, I wasn't expected to date outside of my race ; but eventually we started to date. We're both 24 years old. It's been 9 years; we had good times back then. We came from different backgrounds.
When we finish college, we introduced each other to our parents, her parents and mine are against the idea of us being together, they said that it won't work because we came from different cultures , and they said we're not good for each other, but her parents started to accepted me after few months. We're both Christians. My parents suggested me to marry one of their friends' daughters; one is Vietnamese, and the other one is Thai, but I refused to date one of them because I'm in love with my girlfriend.
At first, they thought I was going to break up in a couple months later , but when they realized that our relationship was getting serious, and we're engaged. They started to treat her horribly. When we got engaged, they said they're not coming to our wedding. Nowadays, my wife isn't allowed to come over to my parents house because they can't stand her. During holidays, I spend time with her parents and we had a good time together. We've been married 16 months and she's 6 months pregnant; twins 1 boy 1 girl. And I just don't understand why my family doesn't realize we're happy with our marriage. I want my parents be happy about it, but they won't. What should I do?

I understand you cos I have many Korean Thai friends and I did kinda learn some stuff about your culture, first congratulation for your marriage and for the pregnancy ^^ and second, What I can advice you for now is : try to talk to them you know the oldest it's hard to make them understand if you use power, go to your parents tell them they will be a grandparents in 3 months, try to make them understand (nicely) that you are really happy in your marriage and rice isn't important when it's come to love, you can use the rice against them ;) Your father is Korean and your mom is Thai women right? so use that against them it's will help, try to talk to them about there marriage before yours, they are both from different rice and I bit both did pass from the same story as u so use that and I wish good luck for you am sure they wouldn't stay mad forever specially if they know u will have kids :)
am sorry for my bad English1
