We got married in December 2013 – Interracial Couple Story

We met in 2011 and after not catching on to her hints for ever 6 months i finally messaged her. The only problem was it was the day before she was moving to Maryland. So for 3 months we talked and video chatted. She even came to visit about right after our 1 month anniversary. It felt so different than other relationships, I just knew she was the one.

We were making the long distance relationship work but we really misses being with each other. After 3 months, at the end of 2011, she moved back to south Carolina so we could be together. 3 Months later, I proposed to her and she happily said YES. Shortly after we found out we were expecting a little girl, our family was starting. In September 2012 our daughter Peyton was born and life felt amazing.

Then in December 2012, i was hit head on by a drunk driver when i was coming home from work. I sustained several severe injuries including both legs being broke and a ripped aorta, I was minutes away from dying.Our family was almost torn apart as soon as it started. After a lot of surgeries and prayer i came through and was able to go home for my daughters first Christmas.

The Recovery was long but my wife helped me through it all, she never left my side. We got married in December 2013 and are still going strong.

Living, Loving & Enjoying Life💖

Thanks

David Shelton and Shanise Shelton

Love is Also in The Differences

My Name is Barbara, My boy friend’s name is Felipe. We met at work and from the first meeting i fell in love. I called him to leave because he’s shy. 

We are a very Young couple, he is younger and the age for me does not matter because there is love. My Relationship with him is wonderful, loving, loyal and fun. For other couples the tips is always to talk to the partner about everything and respect the differences of each one is important.

Happy Lovings Day Story – Interracial Marriage Is Legal

 

June 12th 1967. 

One night, on July 11, 1958, cops broke into Mildred & Richard Loving’s bedroom & they were arrested for being married. Richard spent 1 night in jail while his wife spent several more. They were both sentenced to 1 year in prison, but was suspended under the condition that they leave the state of Virginia (their home state) & not return together or at the same time for 25 years. They moved to Washington & had 3 children.

In 1963, Mildred became fed up with being ostracized from her home & decided to take matters into her own hands & took her case to the US Supreme Court. Her & her husband fought until the ban on interracial marriage was lifted on June 12, 1967. The rest of the states followed suit on making interracial marriage legal. Alabama was the last one to legalize interracial marriage in 2000.

Even though that case was won, to this day, some couples still have to go against their own families to even get married because of race. If it weren’t for the Lovings, we probably wouldn’t see the many mixedrace couples we see today. We all have the right to marry whoever we want, no matter their skin color or cultural background. Stand up for your rights.

June 12 1967, just 53 years ago today, Richard and Mildred lovings marriage over turned history.They were arrested and sent to jail for being married because of their race. After getting out they fraught for their civil rights, their case was heard before the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1967, The Supreme Court decided unanimously in their favor. Richard later said “For the first time, I could put my arm around Mildred and publicly call her my wife.”

On this day, 50 years ago, this couple made history. Love won. They were arrested in the middle of the night because the state of Virginia did not recognize a marriage between people of mixed “race” (we are all the human race!) Today is a day to remember the hardships they faced and those that many couples did, and still do.

Sometimes it can be the smallest freedoms we take for granted… freedoms like love  On this day in history, it’s amazing to think, not many decades ago, it became legally acceptable to love and marry someone who was a different “color”. The Loving’s unanimous Supreme Court win open the doors for marriages, like my own, to happen.

Happy Lovings Day to all of the racially diverse couple I am blessed to have as family, friends, community and colleagues. Here’s to hoping you may one day walk arm and arm together in a truly post racial world.

Why Do People Treat Interracial Dating Differently?

An eyebrow will go up, a jaw will drop, or some eyes will pop wider when you say you are in an Interracial Relationship. It’s never dating as usual.

You can opine all men and women are the same regardless of their skin color, but you will not wish away the stares, the scrutiny, and sometimes undisguised disapproval.

Interracial Dating is widely treated differently than other kinds of dating. Some of the reasons as to why this happens include:

1. Fear of the Unknown

You may be head-over-heels in love with your African queen or Asian prince charming, but your family and friends might have reservations. Oftentimes, this is a result of lack of knowledge, or just misconceptions about a given race. In that case, your partner may face rejection.

2. Pain of Social Prejudice

According to the American Heritage College Dictionary, prejudice is “an adverse judgment or opinion formed beforehand or without knowledge or examination of the facts” or “irrational suspicion or hatred of a particular group, race or religion.”

Racism is a contentious subject. A topic that most people prefer to sweep under the carpet. However, there are people who don’t shy from disapproving interracial relationships. On the streets, they give interracial couples dagger eyes, say mean things, and in worse scenes assault them. Dealing with this is no walk in the park. It takes a lot of inner strength and that makes interracial dating different.

3. Cultural Differences

Every race has its own ways of being, and of doing things. Every race has its mannerisms, expectations, preferences, cultural practices, traditions, and heritage. Some are major, others are subtle, and others are largely common or acceptable across the board.

On the variation, the way an Asian man will treat his lady is different from the way a Caucasian or an African would. This is because the society that people grow up in does shape them. We grow to accept some things (good or bad) and behave a certain way thanks to what we saw around us as kids.

The things that matter or even days that are significant to a given race are not the same as another’s. For instance, Caucasians are keen on Birthdays, Africans are not. Caucasian men are known to find it easier to help around the house with chores, but that does not come naturally from African and Asian men. Additionally, Caucasian women are more expressive than their counterparts from other continents.

In an interracial relationship, such things might bring about unhealthy friction. To avoid the hassle, most people would rather stick to dating from their own race.

That said, dating from another race can be fun and very fulfilling. Thankfully, unlike in the past, finding a soul mate with a different skin color is only a click away. There so many Interracial Dating Sites, all dedicated to connecting couples from different races.

In 2015, USA Today reported that more than one-third of new marriages budded online. Matter of fact, one in every five relationships started on the internet.

With this new trend – of finding mates online, interracial dating gained popularity. It is estimated that 70% of interracial relationships began online.

The probable reason is that people who were yearning for interracial relationships but did not have an idea where to start their search now just need internet and a computer. Voila! exotic partner.

Some of those who are in Serious Interracial Relationships and even marriages were “trying out something different” for the fun of it, only to find something more special.

The pros of interracial dating include:

1. You Experience and Learn About a Different Culture

From trying out cuisines from Africa or Asia or Latin America, to traveling to another continent, and experiencing a different family structure or society set-up, the adventure that comes with interracial dating is exciting. You also get exposed to new ideas and beliefs.

2. You Help Break Stereotypes and Represent Progress

By being with someone from a difference race, you and those who get to interact with your partner get to understand their race, and demystify misconceptions about their homeland and/or people. This may never earn you the Noble Prize but your life might inspire others to follow the path of embracing diversity, or encourage an interracial couple that is struggling with prejudice and such.

3. You Get The Opportunity To Run Away

With two homes flung continents away, going home might always double up as family vacation. Not to mention you might get a double of the good things – like having a modern wedding in America and a traditional one in India.
