If your spouse's native language is different from yours, what language do you speak to each other and to your children? Do you want your children to be bilingual in both your and your spouse's native language?
We are a bilingual family. My daughters are fluent in my language and English. I speak to them most of the time in my native language and when we are all together we choose English. It is something I am very proud of because without too much effort on my side we raised two bilingual kids. They speak and read in both languages to a degree that nobody would be able to tell which one is their mother tongue. When we visited my family overseas, people had no idea they were raised in US.
