    Re: Would you marry someone from a different race ?

    Never thought about it, honestly. I never put it as a qualifier on my husband "must-haves" list...

    I was focused on sense of humor, education, goals, affection, honesty, etc...

    If I love him, he could be green, purple, or polka dot.

    Not important in my book.

    Yes. It would have made parts of the relationship more difficult, but if I loved her, I'd marry someone of a different race.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    The question is..would you marry anyone who was a different [Bcolour[/B] from you??
    No the question is would I marry anyone who was a different race from me? The fact that you choose to interpret the word "race" to mean "color" is entirely upon you. I am not the only one who has chosen to view "race" in terms of the human race on this thread.

You will feel like a real person, and if you form a relationship, it feels less abrasive overall, like sort of a tribal feeling.

    I was talking to my friend who is a jewish woman, and she noted how even very young blonde girls had racist feelings toward even brown hair in other girls, at the preschool level.
    Anecdotal evidence that does not match with my own. I've encountered Latino women who are very racist and blonds who are so not that they are married to men of other races.

    As long as she is demure and has many common interests. It will definitely help if she is voluptious

    Once you meet your soul mate, it doesn't matter much what others think. You will soon notice some criticism and rejection. Yes, it hurts, don't get me wrong, but only for a little while. It is nothing compared to the happiness you feel being loved and loving someone.
    True friends want you to be happy, no matter what and you find out quickly who they are.

    There is a difference between what I would screw and what I would marry. The robot would have to show significant self awareness and consciousness before I would consider them a viable choice for marriage. Otherwise it's just a complex sex toy.

    I would sign up for that in a minute...provided she comes with a long term warranty.


    As for the poll, I won't marry anybody. Marriage sounds like an agreement to to,antic mediocrity to me. Anyone that says they married the best person in the world for them is clearly staggeringly naive.

    But, in terms of a long term relationship? Her being a different 'race' is a plus. Variety. And if we have a child, they would be mixed 'race'...the more of those in the world, the better (IMO).

    “but if I loved her”...by saying this, you had already ignore the skin tone.
    What kind of girl do you love? What qualities are prerequisite?
