Benefits of an Interracial Relationship
When you begin an interracial relationship, you begin a new chapter of learning. Dating someone who is not from your race introduces you to a whole different culture that you may never have thought of learning. The learning involves visiting other countries, interacting with people from different places, visiting places that you never thought you would, not to mention eating foods different from what you are used to taking every day. You adapt to the different culture depending on your effort.
You could be facing opposition from those who do not have room for other races. You have to devise a way of accepting all the people. People close to your spouse could be the ones opposing you. Loving your spouse makes the hate from the other people look like a joke. It is much better when you are with someone you know is helping you fight for a common goal. That makes the relationship much better. When two races unite they bring forth very admirable offspring. The children become a motivation of the two parents to remain united even more. You can decide to listen to those who criticize you or you choose to love your children. It is a way of making those who do not love people from other areas to begin to think otherwise.
You will help your people to learn about other cultures and begin to appreciate them. When they are seeing them from afar off, they may never get to understand them at all. Most people think that those who interact with other races make the world better for everyone else. Slowly with time people starting thinking it was not a bad idea after all. You should, therefore, think whether you want to listen to people or you want to make the world a better place to live in. You should also think about what you have built between the two of you. The idea of interacting with other people is a decision that you have to make lone. it depends on what you see ahead. The value you give your relationship will determine how far you will go. What happens to you may not prevent you from continuing if you value your relationship.
With this kind of relationship, you will be looking at the world differently Even when you grew together as next door neighbors, you will not know much about that person until you start the relationship. You live in different world even when you live and school together. The other good thing about the whole thing is that a relationship is a relationship, they are all the same whether from the same race or not.
