There are many factors that influence the development of ethical relationships in or between cultures. These factors include the reduction of uncertainty, a degree of intercultural communication apprehension, social communication, empathy and similarity within or between two cultures. When it comes to developing relationships with other cultures we have to take intoaccount that cultures language, customs, beliefs traditions and their method of communication. How similar we perceive ourselves to be to others lead to relationships. “Although we may have dissimilarities with others, the people with whom we develop and maintain interpersonal relationships are typically much like ourselves” (Neuliep, 2017). When developing ethical relationships in or between cultures our ethical standards are beneficial variables that lead to the formation of relationships because it is based on the familiarity of our environments and what is deemed as acceptable to most. This varies within as well as between cultures. Our ethical standards and cultures affect how we perceive things as well as how we behave. This also aids inthe facilitation of developing, maintaining or ending relationships between members of different cultural groups.Cultural groups can differ on their perspectives regarding the ethics of developing, maintaining or ending relationships with members of different cultural groups. Studies of cultural differences take a look at psychological perspectives in order to understand the convictions, behaviors and patterns of social systems in society, as well as the contrast and comparisons between cultural groups.
