American and Iraqi EngagedI came to South Korea over a year ago to teach English. While meeting other foreigners, I met an Iraqi man who is in Korea to learn/teach Taekwondo. Since I did TKD for several years as a kid, we immediately hit it off. I joined his class and we soon started dating. We became inseperable and moved in together soon thereafter. After almost a year, we are now engaged.
He and I have different views on some things, like religion, but we agree on most other things. I can't believe I was so lucky to find the man I want to spend the rest of my life with.
People laugh when we tell them our backgrounds... if only our governments could learn how to get along!
