Do you know any couples with Ethnicity or Racial differences ?
Do these relationships work out ?
How do their families react to such marriages ?
Any advise or thoughts on how to treat your hb's family, how to gain their acceptance and bond with them ?

My hub is black, I am white. First, don't do anything to gain ANYONES approval. You don't need it. The only person who needs to approve of you is yourself. And let me tell you, you'll be respected more just for being yourself. Both of our families were pissed off. You are already starting off wrong in my opinion for treating this as a big deal when it isn't. If you psych yourself up, you are going to say something ridiculous or do something ridiculous.

Do any relationships "work out"? YES. So therefore, interracial relationships work out.

Awww thanks! That's funny because mentally I was giving you a hug, lol. I remember how nervous I was and constantly trying to do and say the right things. I was hoping that my answer didn't come off as rude because that's not how I mean't it!

Oh and my hub and I have a great relationship. You have to deal with things that you aren't use to if you haven't been in an interracial relationship before. The snide comments, the dirty looks. Hold your head high and roll on by.
