Abstract:This qualitative, phenomenological study explored the experience of cross-cultural adjustment among intermarried Iranian-American women and their European-American husbands. A review of the literature revealed that information on Iranian-Americans, intermarriage, and cross-cultural adjustment is scarce, implicating the need for research contributions to this area. The participants of the present study were 12 intermarried couples (Iranian women and their European-American husbands) residing in northern California. All of the couples had been in a relationship for at least five years. The couples were recruited through word of mouth and snowball sampling. Participants were asked to engage in both an individual and joint interview. The couple's joint interviews were done first, and lasted between one and two hours. The joint interviews were carried out in order to obtain information from couples regarding their shared experience of cross-cultural adjustment in intermarriage. The individual interviews with each spouse lasted between 45-60 minutes. The individual interviews were carried out in order to obtain additional information from participants about their personal experience with cross-cultural adjustment in intermarriage. Data obtained from the interviews suggest that although cross-cultural differences existed between the couples, these differences were not major issues that had impacted the marital adjustment of the couples. Furthermore, the data revealed that successful cross-cultural marital adjustment relies heavily on certain areas of strength, which work as a buffer to cross-cultural differences. The findings of this phenomenological study have the potential to add to the limited knowledge available in the literature on Iranian-Americans, intermarriage, and cross-cultural adjustment. The present study has implications for counselors and marriage and family therapists working with Iranian-American cross-cultural couples, but also individuals and couples who are engaged in the experiences of intermarriage.
