I think there are a lot of Portuguese /international relationships. Indeed, I got married to my Portuguese wife last year.

In terms of cultural differences, there really aren't so many between British and Portuguese cultures. Perhaps my desire for punctuality and her total disregard for it is the biggest, but I've learned to go with the flow a bit more 🤣
