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.

We Met in Atlanta 5 years ago

Nick and I met in Atlanta 5 years ago.we were always meant to be together.We got engaged last week.

We met several years ago as severs The time wasn’t right, but seeds were planted. Life sent us in different directions, we matured and followed our own career paths and life offered us a second chance. We went from being acquaintances to falling in love. From long distance to living together. We sought Christ and conquered obstacles. We made a life plan together and began to put it into action. Blessings poured out so we are engaged now. In a new tax bracket, looking to be homeowners, and happily married with children in the near future.

Race removed, God didn’t create “winners” or “losers” he created CHOOSERS. Nick and I both individually choose to build a relationship with one another and I am just grateful for that type of dedication from a partner.

Shayne and I met one night in Downtown Savannah, we bumped into each other, literally! A “sorry excuse me” turned into all night conversation, and that all night conversation turned into us being inseparable since that night. About a week later we had a date at the beach, where we had deep conversations about love, and life.

Dear Sirs,

My name is Polina and I started to use interracialmatch.com nearly a year ago. Those times I was a single mom of half African American daughter and we were living in Siberia (Russia). I met my today’s husband on your platform (he is from the U.S.) and I’m endlessly thankful for it! We started with emails throughout this site and got to know each other very good in a first place, which let our relationships to develop in a right way with no rush.

Approximately in a year of communicating through emails and video chats, he came to the Siberia to meet me, my daughter, my friends and parents in person, then on his next arrival we got married.

I’m endlessly thankful this platform for giving us a chance to find each other. Because living in different parts of the world we could have had even no chance to meet. Today we are one happy family.

Much love and Kindest regards,
Mr. and Mrs.James
