Just a little chit-chat about my experience, I’m a Filipina and was once in a relationship with a Lebanese guy for 3 years when I was still residing in Dubai. Getting to know your partner means gaining knowledge about their culture as well.
You learn how different their lifestyle is from yours.
Having experienced both a same race and an interracial marriage I would guess that my perspective may be somewhat more balanced than many.
When I compare my first marriage to my African-American college sweetheart, which failed after just five years to my current four year old marriage to a Caucasian man, it is most interesting to me that the ups and downs within both of those relationships have had very little to do with race.
However, as I examine my current relationship I believe that there may, in fact be some definite advantages and disadvantages to interracial pairing.
Marrying outside of person’s racial group is called exogamy.
As an African-American woman who has been twice married, first to a fellow African-American and currently to a Caucasian man, I found the question as to whether there are pros and cons to interracial marriage an interesting one.

The fact was that her father most likely had a fear of whites from the racism he experienced as a young Chinese man growing up in America.
He was afraid that his daughter would experience the same racism and discrimination he had gone through, and thus did not want his daughter to have relations with a Caucasian.
