Interracial marriage in the United States has been legal in all U. states since the 1967 Supreme Court decision Loving v.Virginia that deemed "anti-miscegenation" laws unconstitutional. The proportion of interracial marriages as a proportion of all marriages has been increasing since, such that 15.1% of all new marriages in the United States were interracial marriages by 2010 compared to a low single-digit percentage in the mid 20th century.In 2006, 88% of foreign-born White Hispanic males were married to White Hispanic females.In terms of out-marriage, Hispanic males who identified as White had non-Hispanic wives more often than other Hispanic men.a pairing between a black husband and white wife is 1.62 times more likely to divorce than a pairing between a white husband and white wife.The number of interracial marriages has steadily continued to increase since the 1967 Supreme Court ruling in Loving v.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the number of interracially married couples has increased from 310,000 in 1970 to 651,000 in 1980, to 964,000 in 1990, to 1,464,000 in 2000 and to 2,340,000 in 2008; accounting for 0.7%, 1.3%, 1.8%, 2.6% and 3.9% of the total number of married couples in those years, respectively.
The study also observed a clear gender divide in racial preference with regards to marriage: Women of all the races which were studied revealed a strong preference for men of their own race for marriage, with the caveat that East Asian women only discriminated against Black and Hispanic men, and not against White men.
Several studies have found that a factor which significantly affects an individual's choices with regards to marriage is socio-economic status ("SES")—the measure of a person's income, education, social class, profession, etc.
