  • LOL I don't think my parents would have wanted me to date outside my race.

    They didn't take too kindly to me dating someone who uses a wheelchair.

    They didn't take too kindly about me getting turned on by older women (eg. Betty White)

    They probably would have flipped if they met my ex boyfriend (I'm bi)

    I don't think they have tolerance for very much.

    But let's be fair. They didn't think too much of me either.

    We don't talk to each other anymore. There's really nothing left to say.

  • Not black.

    There is also a race exception to religion

    Can be Arab, but not Muslim.

    Everything else is fair game.

    or I'm disowned...

    The family's oldest living matriarch decides this.

    Highly preferable:

    Of the same race.

    Unless she is very rich where she can fill in the inheritance gap and then some..

  • My mom is cool with whoever I date. My dad is a racist biggot. I'm sure he'd have a heart attack if I wanted to marry a black girl.

  • Dad: He wouldn't care

    Mom: Haven't been around her in 5 years so I wouldn't know now. She used to have of problem with me dating outside of my race when I was in high school. Namely white women.

  • Yea - for the most part.

    It's funny because my family is majorly for the own race to own race thing; we got on the subject and I was just like:

    " Yea, my husband will be white or Hispanic."

    Everyone got really quiet and then interrogated me about it. I left it at - that's what I like, and if you don't like that, then don't come to the wedding.

    So now they're like totally cool with it ha ha - I get teased about it every once and a while, but it's just harmless stuff.

  • Yes, they don't care. My ex was half Mexican. And my dad's soon to be ex-wife is from Brazil.

    Even if they had a problem with it, it's not their choice to make.

  • They d be completely fine with it,

    I'm White but half my extended family are the result of happy inter racial marriages. My great aunt married a Fijian way before mixed marriages were really accepted.

    I have cousins who are half Chinese, and half maori.

  • I'm biracial, Hispanic and black, so it'd be pretty hard for me to date someone of the same mixture as myself, but yeah.

    My dad gave me a talk a while back and was like "don't let race be the deciding factor" and my mom does have preferences, such as no mexicans, dark skinned black guys or Indians, but at the end of the day idgaf. She's not the one in the relationship with them.

    • Wait... your mom said don't date any mexicans, black guys? Isn't she black or mexican? O.o

    • She's Hispanic.

      She said she'd prefer no dark skinned black guy, meaning lighter skin is fine, but dark like Idris Elba(Yummmmm) isn't preferred.

      Mexican, it's just cause of how they are, their mentality of the woman needing to be in the kitchen cooking and pregnant and Mexican guys usually aren't successful.

      Like I care what she prefers haha

  • They couldn't possibly care less about the race of the guy I date. They would be too focused on the things that actually matter.

  • My parents are religious so if I dated somebody outside my religion they would not be happy and I do not think they would really accept me if I married somebody out of my religion. They don't care if he's so observant but just from the same religion, but they don't care about his race.

  • I"m Black and Asian. The funny thing is my mother wouldn't want me to date a black guy, no offense to them but I wouldn't either. I wouldn't date an Asian either. They're okay with me dating a white but both would prefer an Asian. I don't know about Mexicans. But idc it's whoever I like.

  • My parents wouldn't, I wouldn't but my nan would flip when I was 8 she told me that she didn't ever wanted me to date a "colored" boy :( As much as I love her I hate her racest view points and I totally disagree with them so if I meet a guy of another race I might just be loosing me a nanna but gaining a lover :) x
