There will never be a time when we are close to his family as well as mine. Loss of holiday traditions. My husband especially feels this when Christmastime rolls around: There is nothing even close to a Weihnachtsmarkt here in Seattle and where is the smell of roasting nuts filling the air? When I lived in Germany, Thanksgiving came and went without even the sighting of a turkey, let alone family getting together to celebrate.
Things just feel a little less warm and comforting when our holiday traditions disappear. However, there are times when our cultural differences rub one another the wrong way. What if we divorce? Being that one can never know where life will lead us, if my husband and I were to divorce God forbid , I have no idea how difficult things could get. What if he wanted to move back to Germany?

third culture kid life A series of reflections on life as a TCK from content developer, SEO specialist, author, and TCK public speaker James R. Mitchener.
But I realized my life as a TCK was filled with more happy memories than difficulties. Yes, TCKs may often struggle with identity issues, reverse culture shock, rootlessness, and loss. TCKs get to travel all over the world. We get to meet people from all different walks of life. We get to learn about different cultures and experience them first hand.

As I continue my research and write up my proposal, I know how important it is to study the struggles of TCKs.
