Is one's openess to interracial dating determined by whether they want to date or marry?
A friend of mine (Latina) once told me that Black men love dating Latina women. But when it came to settling down, she felt that they ended up marrying Black women. Well, that is a theory she derived based on her observation of a few Latina/Black interracial relationships that ended up with the Black man marrying a fellow Black woman.
I don’t know if other people have noticed this too – not just with Latina/Black relationships but all kinds of interracial dating: That when the main intention is “just dating”, people tend to be more open to interracial dating BUT when it comes to “till death do you part” scenarios, those people we always thought of them as die hard interracial daters, end up marrying their own. To be honest, I have always wondered why I keep bumping into so many interracial couples but when we come down to the statistics on the ground, the numbers just don't reflect what I see.
Is my friend's theory right? If yes, does this mean such people are in interracial relationships for nothing more than to experiment or fulfill a fantasy? Do people feel obliged to marry within their own race even when – based on their dating history – their dating preferences clearly lean more towards the interracial side? Is it just a mere coincidence?
