    How do you feel about interracial marriages? Are you for it or against it?

    For instance, a black man marrying a white woman. Be frank with your answers!

    Any marriage should be a decision based on the genuine wish to spend the rest of your life with your partner. To be each other's best friend and companion. To have the same sort of outlook on life.
    Other than that, what does it matter if the marriage is interracial, same sex, old/young, or based on any opinions of others outside the marriage.
    It's your life, you should be able to marry the love of your life!

    As long as both people in the marriage are in love and of consenting age (eg above 16), then I have no issue if you are interracial, same sex, quite an age difference (please see the age of consent) or a mix of all three.

    A marriage between two consenting parties is of no concern to anyone bar those two in the marriage - so if others don't agree - it's not their marriage to be bothered with,

    I used to object to interracial marriages, but that was a belief based on total ignorance.  At the time, my feelings were founded on a concern for the children of such unions.  Now I know that if adults stopped disseminating such racism, children would never learn it, and we would eventually be able to simply accept one another.  I'm for adults of all races being free to choose, without social pressure or judgment, who they will spend their lifetime with.

      I love that you admit your faults and share how you have grown. It shows humility.

      Thanks Motherbynature, if we all take a step in the right direction now and then, we'll all eventually meet in a good place.

    I feel that anyone should have the ability to marry whomever they want, so I am not against interracial marriage. While all marriages can be difficult, I will acknowledge that people from different backgrounds have an extra set of hurdles to overcome, as well as extra benefits.

    The most important thing is that spouses love, respect, and communicate with each other no matter what race, religion, country, or culture they come from.

    It's 2015! I can't believe this would be an issue.
    Why would anyone care about someone else's love life  or marriage?  The goal is to find someone to share your life with and be happy!
    A Porsche Carrera GT in any color is still a Porsche Carrera GT.
    If you know what personality traits and build you want in a mate and come across such a person only a fool would say;
    "It's too bad you're not white, black, Latino, Asian or whatever!"
    Love normally doesn't come around often enough in one's lifetime to bypass many opportunities to be with a quality person.

    I don't mind interracial marriages because I am also married to an Englishman and we both love each other no matter who we are. I don't think there should be an issue of race, colour or religion when it comes to marriage. Love is the most important thing here and it does not matter who you fall in love with as long as you love and respect the person you love.

    I believe folks should feel free to marry whomever they so desire. Sometimes interracial marriages cause problems if close relatives disapprove, but that is an issue that can be faced. Families sometimes don't even like the person you want to marry, anyway. If you are in love, it is your decision to make. You can get counseling if you feel it would help clear up issues, or talk to others in that situation. I know many interracial marriages that work, and do not know of one that didn't work out. Such marriages are much more accepted these days than in the past.
