Cultural difference in marriage

Question: The man is from a Western country and the lady is from Southern Asia. There is a huge cultural difference in between. In a case of marriage, whose society’s customs has to be followed?

Marriage needs mutual love and respect. If the couple is from different cultures they need to talk and agree upon the cultural aspects of life. It doesn’t matter if they follow his or hers as long as none of them is oppressed and restrained from living to his/her cultural values. There has to be a mutual consent on common issues of life, and there has to be a freedom on the personal issues.
