I am white and my husband is Hispanic. We have been together for five years now. When we were dating his family was ok with it, but didn't bother to get to know me well. When DH told them we were getting married his mother was so upset. She didn't want her son marrying a white woman. She even tried to guilt trip him by telling him she wanted grandchildren who looked like her and would carry on their heritage and that she raised him to marry a good Mexican woman. They have never been nice to me and have never accepted me as part of the family. His sisters have lectured me saying that I have taken a good Mexican man away from Mexican women. My husband's aunt recently told me that his family doesn't take me seriously because they believe one day he get his act together and leave me for a Hispanic woman. Then they won't have to deal with me ever again. They don't even refer to our kids by their names, they call them the white kidsAnswer Question

Wow! That is rough... I can't even imagine how hard it is for you to just deal with them, let alone be civil to them.

Alot of ignorance coming from anon :28 and :30
anon :28 I am white so I don't understand? What makes you think I grew up privileged and in a good neighborhood? Just because my parents were white doesn't mean we were rich. When you limit yourself to only date or marry one race you are shutting out a whole world of people. What makes you think your soul mate was born with the same color of skin as you? You are the one who is holding yourself back by refusing to consider a man of another race.
Maybe you should focus inward and make yourself into a good woman that a good man (ANY good man) would want to marry.
