PS: I'm talking about cultures and not religion or race.
Would you do it? What are the advantages and disadvantages?
For a long time I thought I would only marry someone from my culture but now I think that it can be very exciting and intersting to be with someone from another culture , but it has lots of obstacles (for example which culture would the kids belong to and is it confusing to be part of 2 different cultures?).

It's not confusing at all to be part of two cultures, it's actually more fun! Those of us kids brought up on two (or more) have a far easier time involving ourselves in either one.
An advantage is that you get to experience something new, and usually people in multicultural relationships have a much more balanced view on life. You realise just because someone see's it differently doesn't necessarily make it wrong. A disadvantage is that the culture shock can be too great for most people. Your partner's culture might do things you are seriously against, and if you simply criticise instead of trying to understand it, the relationship simply won't work. It really takes an open mind (especially to marry).1

I'm fine with it. Of course, I married a guy who comes from a different country and culture than mine. Our kids will be part of both cultures - that's not confusing at all. My first and only MyTake (so far) is on this very subject.
