    Marla Alupoaicei's book, "Your Intercultural Marriage," is an amazing compilation of information. Each chapter title deals with a different topic that an intercultural marriage couple might face. Examples are: "Managing Your Finances" and "Preparing for a Lifetime of Success." Each chapter contains touching illustrations of other couples' experiences and practical guidelines geared to each topic. I would recommend this book for anyone considering an intercultural marriage, any family with a member of a different culture, or anyone anticipating marriage.
