Interracial Marriage on the Rise

by Amy Wise February 22, 2012

By: Amy Wise

A report just came out from the PEW Research Center on Interracial Marriage. Much of the media reported on the study. Our family was part of the story in USA Today and the L.A. Times.

After being together for 20 years and married for 19, we don’t think of each other as an interracial couple…we are a couple.

In the end, we are not made up of colors, we are just us.♥ I’m thankful and honored that our family is part of the story bringing about awareness and change. It is imperative to open minds so one day this will no longer need to be a story.

Check out some of the articles about the rise of interracial marriage with our family featured:

With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States.

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
