S02/EP16 - Juli & Mo, From Summer Love To Marriage

Meet Juli (Colombian) & Mo (German)

In this episode, we're going to talk about how Juli and Mo met [02:15]. Back in 2014 Mo was doing an internship in Barcelona (Spain) and Juli was studying there. The night they met, neither wanted to go out. Juli wanted to spend a calm evening while Mo was about "to hit the feathers" as he is describing it. He even was wearing his PJs already.

It developed how it developed, and this is why both got convinced by friends to go into a club. And this is where their paths crossed. They will talk how a gum connected them and why Juli didn't like Mo in the beginning. There were misunderstandings from the very start already and the language was just one reason [09:22].

Throughout the whole episode we'll talk about cultural differences and stereotypes. Mo and Juli give some valuable advice and are very open-minded when it comes to their age difference of six years. While they were dating on long distance, a few people gave the advice not to get into something serious. For a long time Juli even thought that this is just a "Summer Love". 

But it turned out to be so much more than that! [37:30] Mo was able to win her trust and to convince her into a serious relationship. They started to plan a life together and in 2016 they finally managed to close the distance. [1:07:23] Juli moved to Germany, and she hated it. Without speaking the language and knowing the culture, she suffered for at least two years. But as she is saying, "...you do those type of things for love!" she managed to overcome the hurdle with Mo supporting her.

Eventually they were able to move to a bigger flat, Juli learned German and started her Ph.D. while working in a factory to support financial wise while Mo was working three jobs. She considered moving back home twice, packed her things for Mo to unpack them again [58:33:53]. Being in a multicultural relationship and living in another country is challenging, but not impossible if both are fully committed. This is one of many messages they'll share. 

If you'd like to know more about Juli and Mo don't hesitate to contact them. They're both trained coaches and are specialized on multicultural relationship. The best way to reach them is trough Instagram.
