Reasons why you should consider interracial marriage

1. Interracial marriage will take you to another world within this world

Life becomes very boring if it only entails doing the same things day in day out. When you move maybe from one continent to another, you will interact with new people who have different ways of doing things, different solutions to the problem that face the humanity. You will have that unique opportunity to enjoy different foods, music, festivals etc.

2. Opportunity to learn and practice

In an interracial dating or marriage, you have an opportunity to learn something new. May be a language, way of dancing, cooking, eating, sleeping and everything which you can think of. This makes you a better person who can survive in any kind of environment. You learn new ways of solving problems that face people. You also learn to appreciate other people’s way of living and doing things.

3. Playing a role in the creation of anti-racist population

The products of interracial marriage have no one specific race. They belong to more than one race. This way also, one becomes an example that all human beings are equal regardless of their race. This also plays a strong role in promoting tolerance to different cultures. Children from interracial relationship cannot associate their unique abilities or success to certain race but they will associate this to their effort and unique abilities.

3. Increased genetic variability and its benefits

Each race has its strong areas. This may range from intellectual capacity, sport skills, etc.The mixing of genes during reproduction allows such good characteristics to be shared and thus playing a role in making a better world. When it comes to diseases, each race shows different rates of resistance and susceptibility to certain diseases. Increased genetic variability strengthens the immune sytem of the offsprings. Children born from interracial marriages may acquire the good qualities of resistance against certain diseases from one parent. Increased genetic variability may also give rise to very beautiful offspring.

4. Strong dating/ marriage bonds and high success rates

Chances are high that the factors which brought you together are unique and special. May be a vacation in different continent when you met your lover, maybe a safari in one of the best beaches in the world. These unique and special moments make the bonds which hold you to each other strong and hence higher chances of surviving the challenges which break many relationships.

      I am ALL for interracial marriages! If everyone did that, we'd all eventually become one race, and there would be no more racism!
