Setting aside the legal considerations, unfortunately the Justice may be half right. I've worked with divorced and single fathers for 20 years, and I can say the a marriage between an African/American male and a Caucasian female have a high rate of failure, resulting in the mothers trying to alienate the children from the father. There's a much lower rate with them marrying a Asian woman. For Caucasian males marry an African/American woman, the failure rate of the marriage is much lower than marrying a Caucasian woman. I hate using the term race as we are all a part of the human race.

BTW, since Hispanic isn't a race, but it's an ethnic group (cultural), they don't publish statistics with Hispanics.

88% of foreign-born White Hispanic males were married to White Hispanic females. In terms of out-marriage, Hispanic males who identified as White had non-Hispanic wives more often than other Hispanic men. U.S-born White women of non-Hispanic heritage were more likely to marry Hispanics who identified as some other race (19%) than White Hispanic women (2%).

Marriage squeeze
A term has arisen to describe the social phenomenon of the so-called "marriage squeeze" for African American females[23]. The "marriage squeeze" refers to the perception that the most "eligible" and "desirable" African American men are marrying non-African American women at a higher rate, leaving African American women who wish to marry African American men with fewer partnering options. According to Newsweek, 43% of African American women between the ages of 30 and 34 have never been married.[24] Several explanations of this phenomenon have been advanced by sociologists. It may be in part due to the still lingering effects of social ostracism, to which Caucasian American men who married African American women were heavily subjected in the past.[citation needed] It may also be the result of a desire among African American women to marry African American men due to concepts such as racial loyalty.

It's hard work to keep a relationship afloat. Throw in racism, mixed kids and angry relatives and you have a struggle. If two IR people are not totally committed to each other, they are destined to fail.

The reasons are quite obviouswhyblack male/white females have the highest divorce rate--both are from different cultures, both are foreign to each other--Also, studies have shown that couples with similar hair color have the longest marriages, so since no white woman has the same color as a black man's hair, there ya go

Also, there is the blatant IQ difference between white women and black men, a white woman can only take so much stupidity

39ehonor is unfortunately from a culture that has failed her or him. Your short brain capacity an ineffective neurons leaves me thinking your inbread. Ya think!!!!!!!! Either way I am a white intelligent female who is not married to a black person and your post is beyond words. Divorce rates for all occur and this is because society make it easy to get a divorce the inter-racial relationship takes work as does same race relationships. Look at same race sandra bullock with white trach jesse they both are white, oh did I forget to put the same hair color in the factoring of this couple or was it the white trash he hooked upw tih that caused the impending divorce.

Unbelievable is unfortunately for a liberal manical culture hell bent on destroying and debasing anyone who doesn't share his communist Utopian view of things...facts are irrelevant. One example of a supposedly white couple, is his counter argument. For that matter, Sanda Bullock is clearly racially mixed. But whatever, argument a liberal can use to push his agenda is thoroughly exploited. The next time you choose to degrade someone with an opinion that opposes your own, and degrade their intelligence in the process, you may want to check your spelling...inbred, not inbread you half baked piece of cornbread.

As a teenager I had this after school job, and my manager who was trying to fill a position was very pleased over this one person's resume. Well when that person came in for an interview he happened to be a young good looking AAM. As there were quite a few WW in the offices, that pretty much killed his chances for getting the job. According to Newsweek the most recent IR marriage stats has AAM marrying out at 14% to AAW who marry out at 4%. I never thought about the frequency in which AAM and AAW get to mingle with WW and WM, and the article makes an interesting point about how AAW actually mingle with WM in much higher numbers. Because, of course, there are many more AAW in college and working office type jobs. Yet, the IR marriage rate between AAM and AAW is more than 3 to 1. You can help but wonder what the ratio would be if there were more AAM in college and working white collar jobs.
the reason there is a lower number for black women and white men couples in sheer numbers is because they actually have real relationships unlike the media inspired bm/ww couples that end up failing because the black male didn't fit the stereotypes.

That is why the divorce rates between white men and black women are so low.

I thought that article painted a very interestng picture. BW are the most single people in America. Because of murder and incarceration rates of AAM, AAW have the least amount of their own men who are available to them. BW get to mingle with WM are a much higher frequency than BM who get to mingle with WW. But despite all of this the IR marriage ratio between AAM and AAW is more than 3 to 1, if you believe the Newsweek article.
I would say that either AAW really don't like WM, or WM really don't like AAW (at least for marriage that is), or both. When you factor all of that in, AAW should be leading the nation in IR marriage, but in fact they lag far behind everyone else. There are 3 times more AAW in the country than Asian women, but there are more Asian women/WM marriages. hmm... And BW/WM relationships are being promoted all over the internet. How would you explain this?

I see all this constant never ending agenda at forcing people to seek someone of another race as a mate.. I hate to screw up you liberals and your social engineering and diversity bullcrap but people usually marry someone of a like race or culture. Television is constantly trying to throw black men with nonblack women as if a black guy is a prize. Black men are no better than any other men and I am saying this as a black man. I love my own race and do not hate nonblack people but I want to marry a black woman its my preference. I think as with the tower of babel to try and destroy all races in an attempt to make one race is terrible. I would hate a world with only only black or mixed dark people. Look at the stats most black men are married to black women and most white women are married to white men, to me it just works better that way. Why so many divorces in IR marriages, its not meant to be that way, that's why it does not work, kinda like mixing a rhino with a hippo you get some mongrel that has lost a lot of positive traits.

Because black men only get married to MOOCH and for sex....

Once WW realize this they file for divorce...lol

This is also why many BW Refuse to get involved with BM because they are lazy and only think about "muh-dik"

WW and BW arent havin it.....I guess the black guys are gonna have to trick Asian women into marriage next...

Oh wait...White men allready have the asian women.

I have to disagree to some point. I am the result of an interracial marriage. My mother is Spanish, Moroccan and French and my father is Black. They were married for 36 years until my dad passed. I turned out fine, so it's not like mixing a rhino and hippo. I definiately prefer Black men and I believe that's the way it should be. I could Never and I will Never date anything but Black.
