In Australia it is not uncommon to see advertisments for potential marriage partners from the Phillipines and Russia. As it happens I know of two Christian males that have married Phillipino brides and one Christian male that has married a woman that he corresponded with that lived in Jamacia. In the mainstream I think that marriages like this can fail because of not having enough common interests. Yet for the couples above, they are all born again christians and there marriages seem to be working out. Should this be something that the churches should be encouraging? I think that all people should attempt to marry and have children as it is laid down in Genesis. Yet if a Christian guy is having troubles finding someone, could this be an option that churches should suggest, on the understanding that both of the partners would be born again, yet possibly different races?
