Everything your mother didn't have time to tell you because she was too busy struggling! Back when I co-worked Swirling, we created a list of interracial-friendly cities and states. And some of them were not really a surprise — Los Angeles and pretty much all of California, parts of Texas, some flyover states, and swaths of regions on the East Coast and South. But… we went really general. By the way, Self, you need to really wash your hair and you smell like soup. Even though we still find more couples of the same race hanging out together, there has been a rise in interracial dating in recent years.

In the past, such marriages were outlawed in the United States and in South Africa as miscegenation. It became legal throughout the United States in , following the ruling of the U. Virginia that race-based restrictions on marriages, such as the anti-miscegenation law in the state of Virginia , violated the Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution. Many jurisdictions have had regulations banning or restricting not just interracial marriage but also interracial sexual relations, including Germany during the Nazi period , South Africa under apartheid , and many states in the United States prior to a Supreme Court decision. Often couples in intercultural marriages face barriers that most married couples of the same culture are not exposed to. When these foundations are operating alongside the foundation of different cultural roots, as in intercultural marriages, problems and disagreement oftentimes occur.
