It's believed that inter-race marriage will produce children which have many superior qualities. Some scientific research proved that opinion. So, what do you think, should we encourage inter-race marriages?

Why not? We live in an age in which the idea of race has to be questioned altogether. children out of interracial marraiges are surely going to be far ahead to others in their humanitarian outlook. this will make them better human beings.

Love knows no skin color so why should we care what our partners skin color is? If you love the person why would skin change that its rediculous my hubby is Mexican I am Canadian 100% I have never once dated a white guy, weird but i like darker skin tones. Nothing more sexy than an all year tan!

I'm glad you brought this up! I am currently dating a man born in Jamaica and now he lives in Miami, FL. I am a little white girl from Ohio lol. At first, I was worried about what people might think, but I found out that most people are only concerned with the quality of the relationship and not color. I actually really enjoy the differences. If we were to eventually have children, our children would be able to speak two different languages and would know about different parts of the world. They would also be able to travel more than typical young people because they would have grandparents in Jamaica and in the US. I know those aren't exactly the superior qualities you were referring to, but those are some benefits. I absolutely love learning about other cultures and this relationship has been wonderful for me. I don't know that we should push towards having everyone marry someone of another race or culture, but we should definitely support those who shoose to do so.

I don't think it should be encouraged. I don't think it should be discouraged either. the only choice that should matter when choosing if and who to marry is that you love each other. nothing else is as important when choosing a partner.

well i would definitely support an inter-racial marrage, whatever the reason is. i admire those who are in that kind of relationship, and how their strength, courage and love for each other made their relationship possible.

I believe that we should encourage each person to marry whomever they perfer, regardless of race. We should not try to pressure them to marry another race nor should we pressure them to marry someone of the same race. If they choose to marry someone of another race then we should celebrate more becuase the marriage is promoting unity but before the marriage takes place we should allow the person to choose and not try to influence their selection of a spoouse.

As someone has previously stated, I would not encourage nor discourage inter-racial marriages. If people have children and those children have superior qualities then good for them! That's great, it means they wont starve when they are out there. There is nothing wrong with people who want to be married in an interracial relationship as long as they love each other, 50 years ago if you had asked this question it would have been taboo though :)

I think we should just encourage love and respect of people. Respect of each other. If it leads to inter racial marriage and then children so be it.Children are our future. No matter what color or race they are.

actually, there's nothing wrong with inter-race marriages for me. it just shows that the world is being united. and the different assets of each culture is mixed an produces a better generation. so what's wrong with it?

Of course we should encourage inter-race marriage. I think it is important that we are all equal and that we all learn from eachother. I don't believe in giving up either heritage after marriage. A marriage of two races, ethnicities, religions, etc. should include both cultures individually. Look at my avatar, and MyLot name, for example. My mother was born in Denmark, my father was born in Canada, and I'm a product of both of them. I am very proud of that fact.
