MixTogether recently contributed to ground-breaking research into mixed relationships conducted by London South Bank University. Their funded research programme led to the development of a series of excellent resources aimed directly at mixed couples. The researchers at LSBU, in partnership with the charity One Plus One, were careful to take on board the problems faced by mixed couples whose families disapprove of the relationship. As a result, the resources developed are of direct benefit to MixTogether visitors, and we would like to recommend them to you. Please take a moment to feed back on these resources, in order to make them more effective for everyone: click here to help us with a short survey.
We’re in mixed marriages ourselves and we’ve listened to many other people in interfaith, intercultural and international relationships. We started the Interfaith Marriage Project because we realized that very little help or information was available for people like us, and couples and families often have to face the issues alone. As more and more people are forming relationships with partners of other faiths and cultures, it’s important for us to support one another.
