I am spending my life with a wonderful man, who is in all ways the love of my life. I happen to be very blonde and blue-eyed; he is a Mexican man with black hair and big, soulful brown eyes and skin the color of burnished pennies! When we go out, it never fails- there is ALWAYS someone giving us hard looks or making snide comments. I know this is also comon for couples of other ethnicites. We live in a small comunity, very conservative, and way out in the sticks- VERY rural. Probably 95% of the people here are white...
But what gives?! We love eachother, and HEY people! It's 2009! We're not living in the 1800's anymore! If I want to spend my life with my gorgeuos, loving, wonderful Mexican, why should anyone think ANYthing of it?! Isn't this a stigma that should have died out decades ago?!

Sorry for your experience.
My spouse is not per say an immigrant, but, because Americans in general have no true idea of geography or what constitutes the US, they think he is not a US citizen. We even argued with the woman at the marriage license office. She put down he was a non-citizen on it and refused to change it. even though we told her she was wrong and he was a US citizen.
