But there are also disputes in foreign partnerships as well! If you look at the divorce statistics in Europe, you will be amazed for the first time, because it is relatively high. Should not a marriage be forever? Should both sides not only marry if they are really sure? What we mean by that, is that there can also be problems in a western relationship.
