Situation: Mary is going to marry her boyfriend of three years. But there are some things that bother her. Her boyfriend is from a different culture and had a different upbringing. They are both open-minded people but they are different in food choices and family interaction. Her boyfriend tends to get a bit too jealous at times, which makes her worry. But then she decides that every man does it and he will tone down after they marry. They also have some personality differences: Mary is hard-working while her boyfriend is not so much. Mary is a good reader while her boyfriend prefers physical activities. Mary thinks that these differences are not a problem for their marriage because they will find a middle way.
Questions: The big question is: Should Mary marry him? Will cultural and personal differences prevent them from having a smooth married life? Or are the differences reconcilable? Should she take his jealousy as a serious issue or a passing fad?
