What is his family like, do you know?
Statistically, couples where the man is white and the woman is black are more affluent and liberal and educated than the general population.
Is his family liberal and educated? It's very likely they'll embrace you and judge you by who you are, not what color your skin is.
Im sure his family will love your baby and you regardless.
My husband is Arab/egyptian and im white australian.
my family love him and our children.
race should never be an issue.
I'm so sorry you feel like you do.that these thoughts even enter your mind,you should never have to question weather people will treat you diff based on you skin colour.
we are all brothers and sisters in humanity
I think that you guys are going to have a beautiful family but do not feel bad!! In my family my grandma has 3 kids. (We're Hispanic btw) my uncle married another Hispanic. My mom married a white guy and my aunt married a black guy! Over the years we have all learned to love each other!! At first it was weird, my aunt was married before my parents were so we had just gotten usto my uncle and then my mom marries an American and all I have to say with time the love will grow tremendously! Don't worry everything will turn out fine!
It's such a sensitive issue these days. I think racial/cultural issues need education and time. Like people mentioned above, family will be family, but when two different families from different contexts come together, everyone needs to be educated and understood (regardless of racial or cultural differences). So, be ready to explain and be explained to. I think when we got married, though we are both Asian, our families had to be explained to each other. Communicate well.
I think it just depends on the family, wierd to say that I'm full hispanic my bf is 80% hispanic 10% native & 10% white and some of his hispanic family didn't like me when they met me & I'm nothing but a quiet shy person .-. NOW they seem to like me cause I'm carrying his child but before people didn't like me for the dumbest reasons, some were because he is pretty fit & I'm pretty over weight & almost nobody in his family is over weight, they are ALL almost in good shape (wierd lol)... Just hopefully his family isn't judgemental & will except you for who you are :) if not then hopefully your bf lets them know that he loves you no matter what your skin color is... wish you the best of luck tho!!
I concur with the above. I'm whiter than white and my husband is dark (Sri Lankan). We've not had the tiniest issue with our families living our daughter and they'll be thrilled when they find out another is coming! Family is family. The blending of cultures is more exciting than challenging!
Be nice to them and also be patient with those who are slow to warm up.
I'M in an intrerracial marriage hubby is south American and I'M native/African American, we have 4 girls and baby boy is on the way. Our kids are the only multiracial children in his family but it doesn't matter family is family.
If my kid brought home a rainbow unicorn and told me he loved her, I would love her too. If they are good people, they will love you and the baby since you are a part of his life. Just because someone is different doesn't mean they are any less family :-)
I hope they are good people and accept you as you are and make you feel comfortable. Good luck ❤
