Is there a racial hierarchy when it comes to dating outside of our community? How difficult would it be to go against the 20-30 years of conditioning we've all had on what an acceptable partner looks like? And how does religion add in a third layer where most in the West only struggle with the "interracial" aspect of a mixed marriage? These are the questions Shabnum explores on this week's episode with Zara, Angie, and Tej. Zara is a British Pakistani woman from the UK who fell in love with a white British man from a Christian family. Zara tells us about navigating religion and marriage as a Desi and as a Muslim when these aspects of her identity were very important to her. Angie is Chinese American, and Tej is Indian American and the two talk about breaking the news to their own families while navigating how Sikhism fits into the picture. This episode is a really important one in understanding how Desis all over the world are for the first point in time breaking the established notion of what a successful marriage must look like on such a large scale .
