I cant tell you that because it is future .But I can give you circumstances if they happen - If I fall in love with someone who loves me then whatever her caste is doesnot matter me. But If it is going to be arrange marrige then only my religion .

I don't think I would. But then if someone had such different lifestyles and beleifs to me I can't imagine a relationship lasting long enough to the point of marraige.

yes i can, becauese love really dont care what race ,culture or relagion you are. if i love someone i dont care what nationality he is... the important is that the two of you are inlove and happy. i hope my answer is fair enough...

Yes, and I will. My boyfriend and I are engaged. He is mexican and I am white. I don't care about the color of his skin. He is sexy and he makes me happy that is all that matters. I love him because he is beautiful inside and out and he makes me feel good. I am in love with him not his skin. I wouldn't care if he were green. I love him so much and love conquers all. Race never did matter to me. I love who I love and it has nothing to do with his race or religion or anything like that. I'm actually enjoying learning about his culture and trying the different foods he likes to eat. I'm even learning to cook some of his favorite meals, not because I have to, but because I love him and I want him to be happy. He is also very understanding and interested in my culture.

Well i dont think I would marry someone from a different race,and the reason would be because my family would hate me for it....and I do not want to deal with the stress...as far as culture,If I liked their culture maybe...depends on how i feel about them..As far as religion goes ,i am married to someone of a different religion he don,t have one and I do...It dont bother me cause if I want to go to church he will not open his mouth,and never makes commits about any religion..I think that is up to him,if he wants to be lost than thats his choice but I am a believer and he knew it before we married and he knows it now and he stays out of my religeous views,,,,

Sorry dude I am married already but yes replying to the discussion I would say yes,marriage is nothing to do with all the things which you have mentioned.Marriage is destiny you see and one more while marrying one should have similar likings and dislikings.

yes I would like to. It is so adventurous to do so. You get to no other culture religion, have better understanding about it.You get to enjoy festivals of their religion and lots of other things that go with this. No, I would not. Because, there are lot of things that really matter than having a partner from different culture religion. First and most important are you ready to sacrifice somethings really important to your religion/culture for the sake of your partner. Are you ready to leave your parents if they do not agree for this. What about your childrens, will they get a proper life partner or they will be left alone, as society still does not recognize them as one of them. Will you be able to understand your partners religion and faith and would make fun of it or pass comments on it. Will you enjoy her/his festival as you do yours? will she/he be able to eat non-veg is his religion does not allow for? Question...Ques... a lot of ?????? doing a inter caste/religion/culture is not a crime but after marriage, not keeping your commitment is a crime.

Before I do that I have to make all issues resolve. You know being in different cultures and orientations we can expects differences. These if not settled before marriage could be a cause for the marriage to collapse. So dialogue should be made between the would be husband and wife.

I would marry someone who is of a different race, culture or religion. Where I am from (New York State, America) it is very common. I think it is because there are so many cultures interacting in one area. Our population is so diverse, and interracial couples are highly accepted. I don't see anything wrong with dating someone who is "different" from you, so-to-speak. I think it's a chance to grow and learn about different cultures. If you can appreciate each other for the differences you have, then you will have a healthy relationship.

Yes I did. I married a German (big no-no as my family (Scottish) still considered all Germans to be Nazis. To make matters worse he was a Roman Catholic and my family had been strictly Protestant for over 300 years. After 10 years of marriage they realized I had been right I married for LOVE.

no. an not because im rasist its because enough races have been wiped out because of poeple marrying other races. i am half native american and half white and who knows what else. it is not far to any children that are born. i was teased as a child for being white by native americans and teased by native americans for being white although their doesnt seem much differents in the races their is much pain when a child is teased.
