Does your skin complexion matter ?

I know people in my country are very much focused on skin complexion. As soon as anew born baby is born the very first thing that they ask is whether the baby has a fair complexion or not...its so irritating. Sometimes your complexion also plays a role in your marriage. Does it matter really matter so much ?

No offense sweetie, but that is stupid. What does skin complexion has to do with the real person? I mean really, it's not that important. As long as all are healthy and happy, nothing else really matters, does it? TATA.

Maybe if the couples were of same skin color,they won't asks about it(they'll just noticed if the baby's color is different from theirs) But,if the couples complexion were different,naturally they'll asks the baby's complexion to determine if whose skin color the baby has got. Same with asking,whom does the baby resembles much..the father of the mother? Skin color doesn't matter that much,parents were just too excited to see their baby for asking such question(just out of excitement and nothing more) Have a good day always

I know a lot of people who would care about the complexion. It is just a part of life I guess. The lighter the skin the better to some people.
