    I take it by 'relationships' you're talking about the very personal relationship of living together as a married couple or actually getting married rather than just the way we generally relate to other people.  If this is the case, then there will always be those around us who 'think they know what is best for us.'   This would particularly be the case, I suspect, of the opinions of parents or guardians.   They probably think they're helping us - but are they?

    Once we are adults we are free - in theory and legally - to make of our lives what we wish.  Unfortunately there are those who think that because they were in charge of us at an earlier age they have some sort of right to be in charge of us for the rest of our lives.   They cannot let go.

    Most people do not give a lot of attention to how they came by their beliefs.  Neither do most realize just how biased they are - biased to the point of intollerance in many instances.   

    In most instances these biased viewpoints come from simply overhearing their own parents say something derogatory about people of another race or culture.   Just an seemingly innocuous remark - probably exaggerated and untrue - about others can find its way in the subconscious of the unanalytical and uncritical mind of an infant and be there for the rest of their lives.   They don't know why they fear, or despise, and in some way don't like people who aren't the same as them.   They just feel that they do - and feeling is enough.

    It is always based on some sort of fear, generally one that has not been examined.   Things are gradually on the improve worldwide compared with what it was fifty years or so back, but we've still got a long way to go before we accept everyone as equals in the Human Race.

    I have no idea why it matters at all.
    The goal is to find someone who shares your same values, wants the same things as you do for the relationship, (naturally agrees) with you on how to obtain those things, and last but not least have a (mutual) depth of love and desire for one another. Only a fool would turn down someone who met that criteria simply because of their skin color.
    The less options one leaves for them self the more difficult it will be for them to find love. Depending on what race you are you could be eliminating over 6 billion people sight unseen! It's your choice though.
    A Mercedes 600SL in any color is still a Mercedes 600SL.
    One man's opinion! :-)
