I'm in an interracial marriage and couldn't be happier. His mom had a problem with it at first (not when we were dating, but when we became engaged), but other than that we haven't faced any opposition from family/friends.
We have decided that there are certain places we won't live (like the south), and I think it does make it a little harder to find a place to settle down. We live in southern California now, which is really diverse, but don't plan to stay here.
My only advice is that you don't pay attention when you're out and you get bad looks and stuff. Focusing on that is only going to make the relationship stressful, and it's definitely not worth it.
