What Do You Think Of Mixed Marriages/relationships?

Post by nevermindmylife » Sun Feb 05, 2006 5:45 pm

I was recently watching the movie (the 1967 version) of look who's coming for dinner. It is about a couple, the man who is black, and the woman who is white, coming home and announcing to their parents that they are planning to get married to each other. There was lots of contraversy, and many people against it.



Personally, I come from a mixed family, my mother is Chinese, my father is British. I have never had any trouble with being a mixed kid, or have never noticed there ever being problems with coming from a mixed family. But according to my parents, when they first annouced they were getting married, people did have issues with them being of different cultures.



I truly do not understand how any can have a problem, but apparently people still do. So I would like to know, how many of you are okay with it, and how many of you are against it. Obviously the poll is anonymous, so you can give your true opinion, but I ask that you make comments on your opinion if you feel comfortable doing so.



Also, there is no middle category, because I do not believe that such a category exists, and that having a middle category will just allow people to ignore coming to a realization of what they actually think. I mean, you cannot be in the middle ground on a topic like this. You either do not like people of different cultures being together, or you do not mind it. There is no "I don't have an opinion".



Anyways, thanks ahead to everyone who answers.

I'm fine with it. Love is love. Love's not colors of skin, or different races.

If they wanna get married or date, let them. It's their choice, whatever makes them happy that's all that matters.

I am okay with it, but I don't think my parents would agree with me dating someone who is different than me, but that's their opinion. I will date who I want to date.

im perfectly fine with it. love is love. you cant help who you love. and its just a color it doesnt make any person inhuman. i dont know like anyone who has a problem with it. i mean i know that there will be a couple people but i dont see a problem with it as long as the couple is happy.

She's so big hearted

but not so remarkable

just an ordinary humble girl

expecting nothing as we may

to think it's a pretty person's worth

you are beautiful

and you'd better go show it

so go and look again

you gotta be true only if you really wanna go to the top and you really wanna win

don't believe in living normal

just to satisfy demand

Well, if you wanna get free

and if wanna get smart by the sake of your heart

you should own your lame and stand up tall

I don't have a problem with it at all but my parents sure do, but then again they hate anything being mixed. Hell, I'm a roman cathlioc, and my girlfriend is a pagan...I'm sure that's going to go over well........ :huh:

I don't have a problem with it, because well, I'm in one, and I got 2 beautiful babies out of it. My dad is totally against it though, which is why I was kicked out at 14, because I refused to dump my black boyfriend. I don't understand it though, because my mom is Latino....So can people be racist to only a certain race?

thats sad, I'm sorry to say, but to get kicked out for dating someone of a different race, at 14? I am so sorry for you Jayde.



I have nothing wrong with mixed realtionships, but I have some friends that do have a problem with it....I guess it depends on preference, but I say, its your life, live it the way you want.....



My dad would have problem with it, but that kinda doesn't matter, since my BF and future husband is italian like me and is Roman Catholic, like me......so yea......

What do you think of mixed marriages/relationships? [/b]




I don't. People actually think about these things?



How 'bout that?
Your soul.

Your body.

Your mind.


Keep it Purified.
