Abstract
With the increasingly frequent exchanges between China and the West, the scope of exchanges has expanded from the economic and cultural fields to a deeper and broader level. With the increase of contacts between Chinese and westerners, it is natural to fall in love with and get married to each other. The phenomena of intermarriages between Chinese and westerners are also increasing. Intermarriages help to promote understanding among nations, but because of differences in customs and cultural concepts, such marriages are often in crisis, such as some cracks, or even the dissolution of marriages. People should learn to think differently, put themselves in the other's shoes from the perspective of different cultural backgrounds, instead of understanding and measuring each other according to the concepts and standards of their own national culture, and jointly safeguard their marriages and family.
