Interracial marriage gives the message that caste and race are no barriers when it comes to marriage. Would you marry someone from another race?

Yeah, if we love each other, why not? As long as he has the same religion and can understand my culture I think it's gonna be fine. And maybe it'll be a learning media for me to learn his culture too. My fiancé isnt from another race though, but that's my view lol

Yes, I certainly would! If I fell in love with a person of another race, nationality, religion - it all depends on how well the two of you fit together as people. If you both have the same morals and values and same views on things like children, money, etc, then the colour of your skin shouldn't matter. :) Just my 2 cents! ~Wyrdsister

race and religion an be very difficult to overcome, but with love and ignoring the biggots out there you can do it. Best Answer - Chosen by Asker i don't think that i would have any kind of an exclusive relationship with any man that I wouldn’t consider marrying at this point in my life. if the person i was dating was of any race other than white the race i am i think that yes, there could be more challenges in life and yes, you do have to consider how the relationship is perceived by other people, but really, who i love is about me and them. if i was totally in love with someone, i would in no way let someone else or social perception interfere with that. to me... this question is almost like would you not marry someone that you'd never get over because someone didn't want you to? or, would you consider marrying someone you didn't love because your culture was the same? honestly, i agree with you to a certain extent, some people go through "phases" where they feel a need to experiment with other cultures in a romantic way, but if both people are growing in the relationship not just culturally, but also spiritually, and emotionally and the relationship does come to an end, can you blame the differences of culture? I can't say that that is to blame always. sometimes cultural differences are enough to keep some people apart in the world of love, but not everyone can be put in that box. One of the main flaws in your question is the coupling of culture and race. Race is not culturally bound, and culture is not racially bound. One of the most difficult cultural barriers for many people is that which is based in religion and although that sometimes also is rooted in racial differences, i.e. Islam often peoples of arabic decent or judaism people of Israeli or Safardic decent) people compromise and God knows, fall in love all the time. as much as i would love to be color blind... I'd love for this question to be properly phrased. color and culture are different, ask my mixed-race child raised by Caucasian people and see what she has to say.

If I'm in love with someone of a different race and we are together for the right reasons, than yes I would marry him. In fact, I've been with a Korean guy for over two years now and I'm caucasian..I'm sure we will be married someday. I've heard of people who search for people of another race JUST so that they can have mixed babies..I don't think this is right.

Yah that would be cool, as long as their values is quite similar to mine, or should i say even if we have different cultures but have a mutual understanding and acceptance coming from both parties then there's no hustle marrying from another race. Im a christian and we're flexible.

Yes, I think I would or did or whatever..lol. See, I don't know for sure what you would call my marriage, I'm Native American, my husband is a quarter Native American and 3 quarters white, so what would that be? lol. Should I consider him being Native American or Caucasion? I'm confused..lol.

My sister has a mixed race marriage...at first it wa a very difficult union...the religion that he followed dictated the things she could do... But as the years progressed she became more conditioned to it...she learnt to adjust....and as her children came along they were brought up into the faith.. Im not going to say that it didnt cause many arguments...but all in all it has worked...they have been married for 27 years now....

yeah, love doenst require anything.. its not an issue if she or he came from another race as long as you both understand each other then theres no reason to arise an issue with race. its just a difference in color or languange or culture but this is not a barrier that can stop love.

interracial marriages? well to start off with i am American but my family tree is Irish,German,English,Cherokee. so to raise the questiion would anyone marry a different race well i guess we all would. now if you are asking if i would marry a Catholic when i am not religious and that person lived and loved there religion and belief so much that it become a problem unless i joined there belief then i say no dont do it. Because as we have found out through our own loss of freedom here in the USA you cant express your religion to others without starting wars.So if you believe in raising your children believeing in santa and the other person doesnt then if you cant work it out dont marry

when u say other race? does that mean diffrent countries or diffrent city but in one country? If it is from the same countries I would have no objection on that. But I dont think I will marry someone from diffrent countries as maybe the culture is just so diffrent. It just does not work out for me.

Yes I would. I am a firm believer that it's not the color of the skin, but the person inside that matters. Anyone can be a sweetheart or a jerk regardless of the color of their skin. I have 3 kids with my ex, and they are biracial. I think that biracial babies are some of the most cutest babies out there. :) Beautiful skin color.
