    This question is aimed more at African Americans and Caucasians

    No, as a Christian, I am called to love everyone.  I am not a racist.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

    No ABR..in fact, i encourage it. Not only because i am Christian...but did you know that interracial marriages date back to biblical times? As long as there is profound respect and love between the two..and they consider each other needs before their own..the marriage will be wonderful. Yes, they will have challenges...but if God is that third chord....and this is key...they can make it.

    Not at all. All that really matters is they are happy.
    Out of curiosity why is the question primarily aimed only at African Americans and Caucasians? It seems like a lot of people only think of those two races when it comes to interracial dating or marriage. Why do we tend to leave out Asian, Latino, Middle Easterns, and Native Americans. They also marry outside of their race.

      Indeed, in America the racial divide has been the strongest between black and whites. It is here that racism today can be seen still.

    Funny as in 'ha-ha' funny? (kidding) My answer will probably offend/confuse some of you but I'm speaking from my own personal experiences.  I am female and African American, my first marriage was to someone outside of my race which produced one child.  I think (treading cautiously here) that I would prefer, (wouldn't be the end of the world if he didn't) but I'd like to see him bring home a nice African American girl (or boy whichever the case maybe his father and I have our suspicions)-but let me explain.  I remember being single and searching for a mate (before I married the first and the second time) and how frustrated I was by the lack of eligible, upwardly mobile Black men who dated Black women. After kissing so many frogs I decided to expand my dating pool.  I was lucky both the first and second time around to have met and married great men (yes that is an endorsement for my first husband, it was actually me not him).
    It would be nice for my son to save a Black woman from the anguish I went through but at the end of the day as long as he's happy, I'm thrilled.

    No.  I've been married twice, both times to Asians from Asia so I can't really say anything.  I didn't care the least about my parents' approval and I don't expect my children to seek mine.
