Have you ever or are currently dating/married to someone that is not the same race as you?

I always find it romantic seeing an inter-racial couple. Currently im happily with my girlfriend who is Filipino/ Asian and I'm white.

No.

I have no moral "issue" with it..... and among my friends are several "inter-racial" couples.... I see nothing good or bad about that.... but the love of my life is of the same race as I.

I don't see anything particularly noteworthy about inter-racial groupings either way.

I know a few people who have dated and married outside their race. I've known a few people over the years who have adopted children of different races. The only concern I'd have, and it's obviously not my choice what other people do, is making sure that kids don't get caught up in a maelstrom of racial issues of someone else's making. I remember during my school days there was a kid in my class who was mixed race and he got a lot of abuse for it. These days there's a lot less tolerance for that sort of thing but, let's face it, bullies don't typically wait for a group of witnesses before picking on someone for the most arbitrary of reasons.

I was once dating a guy whose father was Cuban and his mother was Filipino. After we had been dating for a few months, his parents invited us over for dinner. This would be the first and last time I would meet them. His mother told him (in front of me) that if he ever married me that she would disown him. He was very close with his family and I decided the best thing for both of us would be 'just friends'. He didn't like it at first but respect what I said and we stopped dating.

We remained friends until he moved back to Guam (his home country). Lost track of him after that.

I've dated a few hispanic girls and they were very family oriented and I admired their culture :)
