My grandparents were married in NY in 1889, and did not live to see Loving v. Virginia recognize their marriage in all states.
My husband is Belgian and I am Mexican-American. We met in Barcelona and we soon found out we were meant for each other! We got married in the USA and then move to Europe. Our daughter was born few years after and she is a wonderful mixed girl who speaks French with "Papa", Spanish with "Mamá" and understands English. She adores tacos and a good croque monsieur at the same level! Our home is inundated with Belgian, Mexican and American culture. We absolutely love every part of our multicultural family. When we met, we did not have in common language, race, religion, culture, nationality.
Maxine and I met in New York City and were married on July 1, 1967 in Washington, DC. I am Caucasian and she was African American. We were married for 39 years until her death from cancer in 2006. We moved to Virginia in 1971 and retired to Georgia in 1994. We had a wonderful life together, traveled extensively and we were well accepted wherever we went. Loving Day is great way to commemorate marriage equality.
Hello everyone.I am very haapy to join you,my name is Ann,I am a student from yunnan province,if you want know about the culture of it,you can send E-mail to me.
At beginning of this year, I met my boyfriend who is black. I am white, and when I first met him I didn't even notice his race. But when I told my mother I wanted to date this boy, the first thing she asked was if he was black. Once she asked that, I knew what was about to unfold. When I said yes, she sternly said to me, "Why black? You can date white,Asian,Indian, or whatever! Just not black!". She also suggested that I transfer to a school with more white people in it. I was made to feel ashamed and guilty for liking someone of the black race.
Mandy and I went to school together from Pre-k- 10th grade. I never thought growing up that her and I would ever date. She was the cheerleader and I was the athelete. We never saw each other after 10th grade seeing as my family moved due to a parents new job. Well about 6 months ago I ran across Mandy on facebook so I decided to write her a message. That day was July 7th, 2013.
We just make it day to day. Most people we know accept us as we are, but then again we also sometimes hear people talking about us. It hasn't been easy...
I am the daughter of a Pennsylvania Dutch mother and an African American father and I am very proud of my biracial identity. Based upon the experiences of my parents, (my dad was born in 1928 & my mom was born in 1940), as well as my own experiences from growing up as a biracial child in the seventies, biracial identity has always been near and dear to my heart. I had the honor of presenting at The International Loving Conference held in Chicago in 2007.
