Enduring the unkind words of disapproving family, friends, and society (including those at work) may be too much for a new couple to bear.These people will question your motivation for pursuing a mixed-race relationship.
Should it turn out that their complaints are related strictly to your partner's race, it's time for you to stand strong for your convictions. Do all within your power to encourage an honest discussion on race, racial stereotypes, family and love. Com Interracial Relationships Survey has logged more than 9,100 responses and been used in dozens of student research reports on the subject all over the world.There are many challenges you may face and have to overcome - culinary tastes, religious beliefs, customs and cultural differences just to name a few.

Deborrah has studied love and dating for over 15 years and has appeared in numerous media outlets and is a frequent guest on 106.1 FM KMEL in San Francisco. in Mass Communication and has written the book Sucka Free Love.These survey results, coupled with the discussions I've had with men and women of various ethnicities on this subject, would cause me to say that statistically, the answer to this question is "no." Apparently, many people are certainly open to DATING someone of another race, but still draw the line when it came to marriage and children for whatever reason they have.I'd have to say that only the strongest people, the most determined to open their mind and spirit to someone very, very different should even attempt interracial dating.The vast majority (58 percent) of respondents said that they wanted a loving partner and that ethnicity was not at all a consideration in their choice.However, 34 percent report that their families made it a point to communicate that they would tolerate their child having friends of other races, but not romantic partners.Loving them will mean you do all you can to understand that not everyone has had the experiences, privileges or even the problems that you have!I think that would depend strictly upon your age, maturity level, and level of independence.
