    Molten_dragon is being honest; no reason to jump all over him. Families are important, and some would be very hard on people who marry someone with a different skin color. Other families wouldn't be.

    When my sister had her first child (she was a single mom) my grandfather had one question for me - "was the father black?" (we are a caucasian family). Luckily it was in the days of postal mail, and I just never answered.

    The reason I asked is I married a Thai gal, been married for 45 years and whether my family would like her or not didn't even enter my mind. That is probably because I was in Bangkok at the time. It was my intention to jump on anyone. If it seems I did, I apologize.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I apologize for misinterpreting your comment. Darned impersonal type!

    Re: Would you marry someone from a different race ?

    I'm not attracted to one race or another. The wife is mixed like I am but with a different background. I've never really considered being with someone who isn't racially/culturally/ethnically diverse. Then again, I've never really gotten into the dating scene. So I don't know at this point whether I'd be attracted to someone who is just black or just white. I enjoy the aspect of different cultures enriching a family's day to day life and if we were to divorce, I probably wouldn't have it any other way with my next partner. At the very least they'd have to be from another country as I find most All-American women (black or white) to be culturally boring.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Huh? I didn't say anything about marrying to please your family, I said your relationship would be more difficult if your family didn't approve of it.

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

    Yeah, so I have been told and corrected.

    Re: Would you marry someone from a different race ?

    I married my husband because I loved him. He made me laugh, was good to me, played kick ass hockey, and I knew he was going to be a great father. I didn't marry him because of his pasty white Swedish/Irish complexion. I would have married him if he was black, brown, yellow or red too.

    Re: Would you marry someone from a different race ?

    I'm already married but if I was single, race would be the last thing on my mind. My husband looks like he is another race because his skin tone is darker than mine but technically we are the same race- 'white' hispanic.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.
