I just saw a question without a poll about parental disapproval in general.
In this quesiton, I want to isolate the reason for disapproval which is different ethnicity/race.
If you personally were okay with the idea, but your family wasn't, would you still marry him or her?

My parents told me if Iove someone they will never stand in the way of that so im lucky enough I won't be in that position. They weren't thrilled when I was seeing a guy who was muslim, but more because they were worried about me because they knew it couldn't work out because of his family (it didn't work because of his family lol). If it was the other person's family I don't know if I could do it because I wouldn't want to make him choose between me or his family. I would be willing to deal with them never fully approving but I would not want to ruin his relationship with his family.1

I don't know I'd have to see how much I love the girl.
If I love her a lot and she makes me happy, is not religious than it would be fine. I'm ok with dating/marrying a secular girl but I would prefer she be atheist like me. If she's White my folks won't have a problem with her, but I wouldn't mind an Asian or Latino girl.1
