An Old Question: Once again up for debate is the seemingly age-old question: Can Deaf-hearing relationships work?
Bloggers, including this one, have been weighing in with their opinions lately. A Deaf-hearing relationship can refer to a of possible scenarios.
It could be a ing, culturally Deaf person partnered with a fluent-ing CODA or hearing interpreter, or the same Deaf person partnered with a moderately fluent hearing person or with a noning hearing person.
It might be an oral Deaf person with a noning hearing person, or any other combination of partner backgrounds.
The Communication Factor: Most people will say that the success of a Deaf-hearing relationship comes down to communication, just like it does in any other relationship. Communication, of course, is an extremely complicated matter for any couple. These differences in communication styles are difficult enough for most couples to deal with; when you have two different languages, and perhaps two different cultures, in a relationship, things can get even more complicated.
Deaf-Centered vs. Hearing-Centered: A Deaf-centered relationship basically means that both partners to each other, take equal responsibility for communication issues, and are active members of the Deaf community.
Couples with Deaf-centered relationships tend to socialize mostly with other Deaf and ing hearing friends, minimizing the of social situations in which the hearing partner ends up interpreting for the Deaf partner. Hearing-centered relationships, in contrast, often find the Deaf person dependent upon the hearing partner for communication with noning hearing friends, a situation that can create feelings of stress and frustration for both.
