Post subject:  Please help me understand

:?: I have an intimate relationship with someone from Sri Lanka. He is educated, well traveled, very intelligent, smart looking and a devout Catholic.

I am American, very normal American, independant, mouthy, not particularly religious, and having a very difficult time understanding the differences in our cultural expectations.

Things that seem completely normal and expected to me, are completely "inappropriate" to him. Things that he expects of me, seem extraordinary and demeaning to me as a woman. We seem to be on opposite sides of a river and we just can't meet in the middle somehow.

Has ANYONE out there experienced this? Has anyone worked their way through this and can possibly offer any help???

Thanks - JeaBarber@gmail.com
