    If a mod can bring up gay marriage, then I can bring up interacial divorce; at least my line of discussion is related to OP.

    Perhaps a few decades after SSM is legalised, we may see an article talking about a rise in SSMs. When the time comes, I suspect I will be just as interested to explore how the friends and children of same-sex couples played a part in that increase.

    There's no money in harmony. Racism is big bidness.

    You're being very divisive.

    @Jerry & StillBallin75:

    When it's true interracial marriages are divorced more often than same-race marriages, my first guess is that this is due to racism within the respective families and environments of one or both sides. Say a black guy and a white girl marry, but her parents have racist tendencies and let her daughter and her husband know they don't really approve of their marriage. Or their friends. Or vice versa.

    I guess any marriage the families and/or friends of one or both sides don't approve of are more likely to be divorced on the long run. And in case of mixed race, racism becomes an increasing factor for lack of approval.
    "Not learning from mistakes is worse than committing mistakes. When you don't allow yourself to make mistakes, it is hard to be tolerant of others and it does not allow even God to be merciful."

    This report is posted on every KKK, White Pride, Stormfront forum and website.

    Guaranteed.

    Not saying that's what the report is at all.

    Just saying that's how some people will use it.
