Interethnic intimate relationships are generally considered to be an indicator of assimilation processes, or the weakening of cultural boundaries between ethnic groups (Alba and Nee, 2003). In our research, however, we find that interethnic couples may maintain cultural boundaries and differences in their relationships. Based on interviews with people in interethnic relationships, we find that partners can use language to preserve their two distinct cultures and mutually engage in each other's culture. We consider these dynamics to be an indicator of multiculturalism in intimate relationships – an appreciation for, interest in, and commitment to difference.
