Describe a blended family scenario and how the blending of cultures impacts the family system (both positively and negatively).

For example, blended marriages are becoming more common in American society. However, issues related to the blending of cultures always exist, particularly around language, religion, and family rituals (especially when it involves raising children).

The scenario can be a real one (i.e., a family you actually know) or a hypothetical one (i.e., a family that you create), but it must include both familial perspectives.

The situation should involve gender and emotion.

Be sure to be objective enough that your opinion is not entirely apparent and that biases are not evident.

Also be sure that the impact of these cultural differences is supported by the literature.
