美国文化口语:Romance

2006-07-16 12:21

    DORIS: I liked meeting your boyfriend at the party. I think he seems like a good guy. JUDY: I'm glad you like him. Steve and I get along well. DORIS: He's very funny. JUDY: Sometimes I think he's too funny. He's like a clown. DORIS: How long have you been going out?

    JUDY: Almost a year now. DORIS: Do you think you will marry?

    JUDY: Marry? No, I don't think about it. Anyway, I don't think I'd want to marry Steve. DORIS: Really? Then why are you going out with him for so long?

    JUDY: Why not?

    DORIS: You are together so long, and you even live together now. I'm surprised you don't think of getting married. JUDY: I don't really want to get married. DORIS: Not at all?

    JUDY: Well, maybe later. When I'm thirty-something. But now I'm too young. DORIS: Does it bother your parents?

    JUDY: What?

    DORIS: That you don't want to get married. Don't they pressure you?

    JUDY: No, not at all. Why should they pressure me?

    DORIS: Usually parents want their daughter to find a good guy. My parents, for instance, they would be angry if I lived with a guy. JUDY: Yes, I understand. I've heard that before about Chinese culture. But in America most parents let their children manage their own love life. And me, I wouldn't tolerate my parents telling me what to do. I'm an adult. DORIS: You are very independent. JUDY: Why shouldn't I be? Who I go out with is my business, not my father's. If he doesn't like someone I like, then he will tell me. But if I go out with the guy or not, that's my choice. Do you want to marry someone your parents choose for you?

    DORIS: My parents want me to marry a doctor or a lawyer. They are happy I got into such a good school. JUDY: See what I mean? Maybe the guy you fall in love with isn't a doctor. Then what? Are you going to choose someone just to please your parents?

    DORIS: No, I wouldn't. It's true my generation is more independent now. But still we listen to our parents' opinions. JUDY: I think it's good to listen. But I don't think it's good to obey. You shouldn't obey if your heart says something else.

    桃乐丝:我很高兴在派对上看到你男朋友。他看起来是个不错的人。

    朱蒂:我很高兴你喜欢他。史提夫和我相处得很好。

    桃乐丝:他很有趣。

    朱蒂:有时候我觉得他过分搞笑了,像个小丑。

    桃乐丝:你们在一起多久了?

    朱蒂:到现在快一年了。

    桃乐丝:你会结婚吗?

    朱蒂:结婚?我没想过,反正我没想过会嫁给史提夫。

    桃乐丝:真的啊?那为什么你会跟他在一起这么久?

    朱蒂:为何不呢?

    桃乐丝:但是你们在一起那么久,现在甚至住在一起。

    我很吃惊你没考虑要结婚。

    朱蒂:我不是很想结婚。

    桃乐丝:一点都不想吗?

    朱蒂:或许晚一点,三十几岁吧。现在还太年轻。

    桃乐丝:这会让你父母困扰吗?

    朱蒂:什么?

    桃乐丝:你不想结婚这件事。他们不会给你压力吗?

    朱蒂:一点都不会。为什么要给我压力?

    桃乐丝:通常父母要女儿找个好男人。

    就拿我父母来说,如果我和男生同居,他们一定会生气。

    朱蒂:我了解,我以前听说过中国人的文化。

    但是在美国,大部份的父母让孩子决定自己的感情生活。

    我不能忍受父母告诉我要怎么做,我是个成年人。

    桃乐丝:你很独立。

    朱蒂:为什么不呢?和谁在一起是我的事,不是我父亲的。

    如果他不喜欢谁,他会告诉我。

    但是我要不要和谁在一起,那是我的选择。

    你要嫁给父母帮你挑选的人吗?

    桃乐丝:我父母要我嫁给医生或律师。

    他们很高兴我念这么好的学校。

    朱蒂:看我说的吧?也许你爱上的不是医生。

    然后呢?你会找一个人只为了让你父母高兴吗?

    桃乐丝:我不会。没错,现在我这一代是比较独立。

    但是我们仍然听父母的意见。

    朱蒂:听意见是好的,但是顺从不一定好。

    如果你心里有别的想法,你就不应该顺从。
