Would you care if your child got married to or had kids with someone of a different race? Why or why not.

As long as she was happy and the man treated her well it wouldn't bother me. I think the only way it could have a negative effect is if there were religous differences. But as long as they are able to work past their differences in religion and culture and have a happy life I'm fine with that.

I am not sure I would even think of it. There might be cultural differences in some cases, but as long as my baby was happy, it would not matter to me, but I am pretty open.

No It doesnt matter the color of your skin its whats inside and if any of my children found that with anyone outside their race I would welcome them with open arms.

No, race doesn't make a difference to me. As long as the person she was with truly loved her and treated her well and they were both happy, then I'd be happy for them.

No, not at all. If it was his choice to date or marry someone of a different race and color, great! If that is what makes him happy then I'm all for it. We have a combination of different races within our family from Samoan/Cook Islands/Indian/Maori/Niuean. Majority are of Pacific Island decent.

No, I wouldn't care at all. It would be more important to me who the person was rather than their race. Besides, I think from a genetic point oof view, children of mixed parentage have a better advantage in avoiding disease and are often more beautiful, to boot!

Of course, will care for my child. Because married life is forever and i see to it that if she will be marry to a man, she is happy..But as a parent, we only have the right to speak and tell our opinion and do support to our child. But we dont have the right to choose a guy for them because if they are happy with that person, though it has different race, i dont think theres problem with that. If that person really care and love and respect my child, i will be happy for them as a parent.

I would def. not care if my children date or wind up marrying someone from a different race. I grew up where my parents cared a lot about me not dating anyone who wasn't white. In high school I did meet this great guy who was Afican American,but because my parents gave me just a hard time about it and I had to sneak around with him the relationship went no where! I am not putting my kids through that. What does it matter what race they are marred to as long as my child is being treated with respect and loving care!!

Race to me is in the same category as age. As long as my child is happy and their partner treats them right, who I am to judge. If I did not know much about the culture that they are from I would educate myself and do my best to make them feel welcome into my family.

I wouldn't care at all as long as they were marrying someone that treated them right. My husband is actually the first guy I ever dated within my 'race'. But I don't like to put labels on people. As long as my daughter is happy.

No I will not care at all because I'm also married to somebody from different race and culture. I'm Indonesian and my husband is Dutch. I think mixed culture marrieage give you more challange. And Even better you'll have good looking childreen..lol..xx

It wouldn't bother me one bit. After all my own kids I had with someone are of a different race. I think it's silly that people really do worry and get angry about it. People should worry about the person INSIDE, not OUTSIDE. But sadly, there will always be someone to get upset over it. If no one is getting hurt and they are happy and in love, what does it really matter?

Nope, I wouldn't care. If his wife's culture were different from my own, I would dive right in and find out about it so that I could get to know her better. I don't really care about such things as race. I dated people of races different from my own when I was younger, and it didn't really make any difference to me. I'd be excited that my grandchild(ren) would have different ethnicities to learn about, and more than one heritage to explore and enjoy. I myself got to learn about both my Native American and my Irish heritage as a child, and I found it really neat to two such different things to explore.
