We recently posted a video asking for topics you wanted to see us discuss :D Interracial relationships was the most requested topic! Here are the questions we were asked:
Q: What nationality/race are we?
I am black and my husband Ty is half black and half white :D
Q: How important was race to us?
Race has never played a part in our dating lives. Neither of us had a preference and really wanted to find someone that we connected to on deeper levels.
Q: What kind of issues have we faced?
There haven't been too many instances with negativity... there are occasional rude comments, but we just brush it off and keep it moving lol.
Q: How did our family and friends react?
Both of our families were pretty supportive. Negativity was minimal :D
Q: Have we talked to our children about race/ interracial relationship etc?
We have chosen not to make race a priority in our home. We want our boys to be able to look past skin color :)
Q: What has been our biggest challenge as an interracial couple?
Honestly, we have not let any negativity or rudeness get to us lol. We feel that God is too good and life is too short to worry about those things.
Q: How do we overcome our cultural differences?
We are not that different from each other lol. We both share the same faith, have similar interests,and have similar backgrounds.
Race has never been a focus in our relationship.We love each other for who we are. :) We've always looked past the color of each others skin and really focused on the qualities each other had. In the end do what makes you happy and don't worry about what others think. In all things keep God first!
