Can People From Different Backgrounds Last Long-Term?

"Can People From Different Backgrounds Still Make It Long-Term?"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

So I grew up in the Midwest and I loved it. I've recently gotten involved with a man from a nation in Africa. I'm falling for him, and vice versa. We aren't ever bored with each other; conversation is great; chemistry is amazing. The issue here is we were talking about our future, and there is a key difference. He would move back to where he grew up, especially if children were on the way. I won't move away from my family (I want my parents to see my children, especially since my mother isn't able to travel on airplanes due to a medical condition), but I recognize it's not fair to keep his away either.

I do really see a future together, but what should a girl do in this situation? We can cleanly break now, but I don't want to! I'd be heartbroken.
