  • I think it's best to date/marry who you love and have a connection with.

  • Yes and no.
    Dating/marrying within our own race generally leads to more stable marriages due to the cultural similarities (I'm making an assumption here and I understand race doesn't equal to ethnicity), plus in some cultures both parties are reluctant to seek a divorce due to the social pressure exerted by friends and family - so they will work out a solution.
    However, studies have shown that as education levels increase race becomes less and less of a factor - i. e., interracial couples are much more common when people obtain a high degree of education, possibly because they are more open and understand that race/colour preference isn't that much of a deal.

    So to answer your question, it all depends on your socioeconomic backgrounds. There is no generalized yes or no for every one, as we are all different human beings.

  • No I think that's kind of limiting yourself and your own happiness there are many beautiful/handsome and wonderful men and women from all sorts of races.

  • No I think it's best to not restrict yourself to race, but hey people are them. They can do as they please. I'm attracted to all races though.

  • Hate your own race then you hate yourself, Have no respect for your race then you have no respect for yourself, Have no pride in your race then you have no pride in yourself.
    Internalized racism is pathetic, So better make sure you are doing things for the right reasons at least.

  • I'll never get married and judging by my past love life that doesn't exist probably won't date either. But assuming I did either I feel I would have more in common with my own ethnicity and whom I'm more attracted to than anyone else. So the answer for me is yes for me it would be.

  • I'm just more attracted to white women, and tend to have more in common with them than women of other races anyway so we get along better. Plus there's no tension from racist parents/grandparents, no drama.

  • It depends on the person really. I think having a different language, culture and religion is what makes interracial dating hard. So some people may prefer to date their own race, only because they will have more in common.

  • It better to marry someone who really loved you and you loved them back. Race is like 1/10 of the factor.

  • Maybe, I'm no expert I mean I live in an area that's basically all white so I don't have much choice there's a small middle Asian community but they barely speak English and wear full hijab so In my case It would be best.

  • It's proven it is. Interacially marriage have much higher divorce rate.

    But any race with an Asian women success rate increases.

  • I do. No problems finding things in common, same beliefs, avoid a million different cultural problems and family problems. Plus your kids look like you both and no-one feels excluded or isolated. It's the only way in my mind

  • I would NEVER say is BETTER to marry into your own race. I think people should marry someone that makes them happy. So if your'e white and like black people or hispanic and like Asian, I say go for it.

  • I am a European mutt (Italian, German, Irish) so I already know a similar thought had occured with my ancestors. They would have heard detractors to keep from mixing, but they stayed with who made them happy and now I am here. Today interracial couple's will hear people saying that it is "wrong," but the chemical in the brain called love and the advantages of potential mixed offspring for those who want children far outweigh the detractors.

  • I really have a problem with people dating outside of their race. Man should not mate with, dogs, birds, cars, etc...

  • It all depends on a person's preference and where they live. I don't find white guys unattractive, but it takes much more "interesting" features (for lack of a better term) for one to catch my attention as opposed to individual Latin or Asian men I've found attractive.

  • Better for whom?

    I personally date only white men of cultures I'm reasonably familiar with.

    I think it's best to date/marry whoever the fuck you want.

  • yes, but depends on you. for me it's a yes bcoz you're already knows his heritage and culture, so not complicated. But still... if in my country, the same race/ethnicity is also have different culture based on the states, so... it's kinda the same thing like marry different race too

  • If you want attention, you would want white guy. If you don't have money, you would end up with black guy, and if you don't have look, you would end up with Latino or Asian.

  • For some people, yes, but from a personal standpoint, it's better to date/marry somebody who loves you for who you are regardless of race. So at the end of the day, it really depends on the individual and what they think is best for them
