” My husband and I were friends before we started dating, and we just organically ended up having these conversations.
At times, I was shocked at how little he ever thought about race before me, and that was something that worried me when I first started falling for him.
Determining compatibility could take years of dating and interaction. Unlike traditional interracial dating sites, e Harmony matches interracial singles based on compatibility.
When you marry someone, you marry everything that made them who they are, including their culture and race.
“Interracial relationships don’t work.” I’ve heard that from various people all my life.
Now, at 35, I’m a Minnesota-raised Indian-American recently married to a white American from South Louisiana.
Could he really support me when I (or our children) faced racism? I could have thrown our entire relationship away based on my fear, but luckily, I turned to a friend who had been in an interracial relationship for 10 years.
He’s a Haitian American from New England and his partner is a white American from Oklahoma.
But his ability to be open and honest about the things he didn't know and his willingness to learn, rather than be defensive, eventually won me over.
