Downside to interracial dating
I should start off with an apology at the negative tone of this post’s title; but I believe that people should know the negatives upfront, get past them (if they want to) and then go on to pursue their dreams.I love sharing my experiences and opinions with others (hence why I’m a blogger).Although it is undoubtedly true that mixed or interracial marriage is a common thing these days, it is still a must that to be sure that you and your partner from a different race are well aware of the many challenges involved with interracial marriage before tying the knot.In the US alone, multiracial marriage had increased to about 10 times from 1970 to year 2000 which significantly proves that interracial marriages have undergone a big transformation over the past generations.The child may never satellize (non-satellization) and become maladjusted.The non-satellizer encounters increased social barriers and problems which the satellized child never encounters."Back Talk" is a column which deals with controversial issues and presents both sides of the topic.
But still, interracial romantic relationships present a whole new set of challenges.Though mixed couples are often scrutinized and put under great pressure from their families and society, the trend of intermarriage will continue to grow and have a very positive affect on the families formed. Miller, an Asian woman, introduced her Caucasian boyfriend Jim to her family, she said, “He [her father] shook Jim’s hand and grunted while looking away when they were introduced.For the most part, parents of mixed couples do not accept inter-racial and inter-religious relationships, or are at least hesitant about the idea at first. At dinner, he ignored Jim completely, speaking only in Chinese to my aunt (who, incidentally, was surprised to discover he could even speak Chinese)” (Miller 80).And people’s perception over this issue is undoubtedly taking a positive spin that’s why interracial marriages are flourishing.For what else could be the reason why it would be increasing if no one can see its benefit?
