Why should color matter. When we get cut everyones blood runs red. I have no problem with it. As long as there is love, then color is not an issue and shouldent be an issue. You stand your ground and enjoy every minure of it as you can.

Very true; but, be careful on the age part, too many pedophiles out there. And, young ones who don't really know what love is. A sparkly new dress does not always mean love, it is a bribe. Too many lavish gifts could be a lure. And, believe me the fisherpeople, sadly women can be guilty too, eat the fish until no bones are left as evidence. Now, we have school teachers getting in on it. Now, THAT's scary. The age thing is not always boundless. True love is the one thing that can live forever above all else. In some cases, age doesn't matter. Color should never have been an issue at all.

Thank all of your for your responses love can overcome a lot of things. As far as the age thing I think thats a whole other discussion. My parents have a 15yr age difference, so I guess love does see no color or number. Blessed Be :)

I think that it's fine. Love isn't about age or race or religion necessarily. All relationships are hard. Just make sure that you don't go in blindly. There can be hard times and people can be mean. So just be strong and love one another with all your hearts. That's what I think.

Absolutely nothing wrong with it. I understand that the couple may deal with a lot of racism, but if they love each other, it is worth it to stay together. There may be cultural differences, but the best relationships are the ones where you can learn the most from each other!

I completely agree I have been dating black guys since I started dating. And it has always been a big thing with the family. I am finally with a man that my family really likes. It took a lot of years but it was worth it to stand by what I believe in. The one thing people need to realize is that they could learn a lot from people who are different from them. Thanks for response Blessed Be :)

My friend has a boyfriend who is black, and she gets a lot of flack about it. People will yell stuff to her when she's with him, like, "Don't you see how dark he is?" It's ridiculous! Hopefully, this will change one day.

I dont think color matters, you can't help who you fall in love with and as ya'll will see by my picture i'm in an interracial relationship and i dont see anything wrong with it. I'm Salvadorean for those of you that dont know that means my family is from El Salvador. I've never dated salvadorean guys i had always dated Mexicans. This is the first black guy i've dated and so far he's the only one thats been able to keep me. We're engaged and will be getting married this upcoming summer.

Awesome! See, color should never have been an issue. I think the whole prejudice thing was somebody's way of exerting power, at some point in history. There are too many examples of it. And, it wasn't just skin color. What was under the skin is where our problems come from. I wish predjudice would go away. Nothing makes me angrier than seeing parents teach children to be disrespectful of others. We all have the same Creator. He's not going to be looking at the color of skin when He decides who He wants to live with for that long.

Jess Congrats on your engagement and upcoming marriage. Your right, colors should not matter. It should not matter what race or color you are we are all human. My fiance is also black and he is the best thing that ever happened to me. He loves me more than I thought I could ever be loved. And I feel the same about him. Thanks to both of you for your comments. Blessed Be:)

I am a product of an inter-recial relationship, so of course I beleive in them. I think it makes our world more diverse and that is only good.

That's not always a good thing. Blind love leaves too many in the dust. Domestic violence comes to mind.

Dollar thanks for your response. Tortoise are you trying to say that certain races are prone to domestic violence? Or that interacial relationships have more domestic violence?

It's all about the love. If two people from two different races can find love in this hateful world than good for them! Its mostly older people who don't like the interracial relationships, probably because they were just raised differently.

Your right that does not make you prejudice. But why do you believe every race should stay with there own race. I mean skin color is the only difference b/t one man/woman and another. If a white man gets in the tanning bed and get a dark tan and a white girl keeps her skin white as snow does that mean they should not be together. Race is only skin deep. Thanks for your response. Blessed Be :)

I think they are beautiful :) Any member from all 'races' have the potential to be beautiful, and if we ALL mixed, or never mixed, we'd really lose our variation (which, yes guys, goes WITH the theory of evolution, NOT against), and variation is beauty :) Did everyone know that there is more variation between any two given cats, than there is between a petite little pale redhead white and a gigantic dark black African male? Race, if you read up on ANY academic literature, is actually not a real concept. Yes, we have regional differences and things we can label (we really like that, don't we?) BUT an actual RACE denotes almost a sub-group or... genre, etc, and we have NO true examples of this in THE HUMAN RACE. ONE RACE.

I applaud you, you are very right we are all of the human race and that is the only race that really matters. Thanks for your response Blessed Be :)

My nephew!!! - he has a black father and that does not change anything!!!
I think that interacial relationships are perfectly fine and should not be frowned upon in anyway. Love is love and love goes beyond all differences in life!! I have a little nephew that is from an interacial relationship and he is adorable!! I love him just the same as my other nieces and nephews regardless!!

during the bible times, God prohibits the jews from marrying foreigners, but nowadays this is the trend and i think there is nothing wrong with that, more so, we are not jews, i do not know if the jews are still prohibited by God as of this present day.

I am in an interracial relationship. I married a caucassian:)+ Canadian:)+ It's hard at first as we have some cultures, belief that he can't understand. Sometimes he easily misunderstood me. We, Filipinos have close family ties and we repect our parents. I was just surprised coming to Canada that kids don't even respect me, yell at me even if I said don't shout! heheheh...guess that is just how they were brought out. I love my husband no matter what, just have to adjust a little with his culture as well:)+

I think it's great that biracial relationships are becoming more common, it just goes to show that people are staying with the people that they care about and not basing anything on colour or family backgrounds. I'm caucasian and my boyfriend is Korean...we haven't faced anything that couples of the same background will/have faced.
