Interracial dating paper

15 Feb

If your commitment to your “partner” and any children you might have is a strong, lasting one, why WOULDN’T you marry?

(And if it isn’t why would you have children with a transient boo?

) Why wouldn’t you want to be able to visit your partner in the hospital, help make treatment decisions and share in his health insurance and other work-related benefits for yourself and any children you might have?

Speaking of children, why wouldn’t you want your children to be born legitimate?

In 1967, the United States Supreme court made it completely legal for an interracial couple to get married.

This law not only proved to America's people that it's okay to be of two different races and get married, but also helped to try to end the segregation of blacks and white in the early 1900's.

But the significance of the change goes beyond simple acceptance.

Statistically shown, most of the interracial couples in the United States are black and white. Compare that with 1980, when less than 7% of new marriages took place between interracial couples and the share of overall marriages was just 3%. In 1987, Pew found that only 13% of Americans completely agreed that interracial dating was acceptable; that share grew to 56% in 2009. This brings the share of all interracial or interethnic marriages to a historic high of 8.4%, according to Pew Research Center data.Have you ever been walking down street and seen a couple of two different races?Or even seen a child that looks like they're not just one race?
