If there are ethnic differences between the two families, capitalize on this! Learn everything you can about the different background. A good way to start is to have a meal together based on the country of origin. Even if your CB is the same ethnicity there could still be some interesting cultural differences to capitalize on. For example, my mother-to-be grew up in Taiwan, so even though my CB has the same ethnic background I do, he grew up with strong Taiwanese influences. It's fun to explore the differences (and experience the different kinds of food)!
