Some racial groups are more likely to intermarry than others.Of the 3.6 million adults who got married in 2013, 58% of American Indians, 28% of Asians, 19% of blacks and 7% of whites have a spouse whose race was different from their own. If you thoughtfully and honestly ponder these questions, you’re sure to gain a wealth of insight toward finding a person who loves what you love. What is there about it that you would especially like or not like? But, of course, it’s most important that you understand yourself.
“Newly married” or “newlyweds” refer to couples who got married in the past 12 months prior to the survey date (American Community Survey).Newlywed couples in 2008-2010 combines three years’ data for newlyweds.Even though labeled as “newlyweds,” 42% of newly married couples in 2008-2010 have been married before (either husband or wife or both).This is exactly what happened in Israel, according to Malachi .
A similar principle of spiritual purity is laid out in the New Testament, but it has nothing to do with race: “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. Just as the Israelites (believers in the one true God) were commanded not to marry idolaters, so Christians (believers in the one true God) are commanded not to marry unbelievers.
For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? The Bible never says that interracial marriage is wrong.
