  • If my child is old enough to marry, it really isn't my deicision any more, is it...?
  • What color would that other person be if you were blind?
  • I would only (try) to stop it if that person didn't love my child! No matter how long he had been in the sun. I would hope she would marry a Doctor but I guess a lifeguard would be Okay!
  • "LET" my child? How archaic is that?
  • sure i would. why not?
  • If you have kids you already know that you can't let them do anything, they will do what they want.
  • Yea, why not?
  • No because our founding fathers wouldn't allow it so why should we
  • As long as they're happy yes
  • no. not green or blue ..but most other colours would be fine.
  • "Let"? No one with children knows that you don't "let" them do anything. Would I mind? Not if they truly love each other.
  • I would want my child to marry whoever they loved and would be happy with regardless of skin color or nationality. I would want them to consider all problems that may come up and whether they would be aware of the complications it might bring, but as mature, grownups, I'm sure they would have done that already and wee prepared to deal with what may come:-)
  • Of course I would you cannot make their choices for them.
  • Well, I'm of Polish extraction and my wife is of German extraction, so I don't have any room to talk here. My Dziadzia's probably rolling over in his grave.
  • It depends I guess. I would let them marry anyone they wanted, but I would have to meet the person first(no matter what color..even white) and determine whether they are suitable. i won't let my child marry a jerk.
  • yes. 1 . its up to themm 2. what colour got to do with anything ? we are all the same.
  • When my children are old enough to marry, they will be adults. Which means they can make their own chioces and do not need my permission . My hope is that I will have raised them right, and they grow to be healthy and happy. As long as they love the person and the person loves them then I do not care what race, or sex their partner is. It is not for me to judge love.
  • sure, why not? skin color means nothing, only how he/she treats my son/daughter. Love is unconditional.
  • Most certainly, if that is what they wanted. Although I would hope it's a pretty 'normal' skin color...if the other person were green for example I may worry about what the children would look like.
  • Why not?
  • "Let"?? How archaic...it's the child's business who they marry, not the parent's. People should be allowed to marry who they love, not who they are told they are "allowed" to marry.
  • They are free to marry anyone they want regardless of skin color.
  • How do you think you'd respond if your parents dictated to you the kind and color of the person you decided to marry? Would you follow your heart or your parents wishes?
  • If my son wants to marry someone, my only hope is that the person he chooses is good to him and for him. Nothing else matters to me.
  • Yes cause what really is important about a person is how they are on the inside not the outside.
  • No blue/green people ! Of course I would as long as they didn't hit them , or cheat , and treated them right. Go for it !
  • As long as they are of the human race...
  • Absolutely, I want my kids to marry someone that will love and be good to them if that someone has a different skin color well then I am cool with it.
  • Is there actually any way to prevent it without in the process creating for yourself, your child and the rest of the family an unwanted situation that might hunt you for the rest of your life?. I might not necessarily be thrilled with the choice they might make, but I really believe I need to respect [their] choices. I could think of a myriad of things that I could do, I suppose, to prevent it but they all sound crazy. Just the idea of trying to prevent it sounds wack.
  • absolutely. as long as this person was good to my child then that is all that would matter.
  • If they are old enough to marry, there's nothing I could do to stop them. All I want out of my child's marriage is for them to be happy and healthy grandCHILDREN. Who they fall in love with is all them.
  • Sure - as long as they did right by them I don't care what color the skin is.
  • Mary a person of a different color...yes. marry someone with a complete different religious/cultural backround...no. I'm from hispanic backround and my father would prefer if I did not marry someone of Indian or Arabic(Muslim) culture. Arabic Catholic would be fine, but Indian culture would be comepletely out of the question. As Im older now, I do understand why he would feel this way.
  • As a parent I don't feel I have the right to prevent my child from marrying the person they love. If their partner makes them happy, that's all I need to know.
  • love is colour blind and thats the way it should and must always be and no one including me has the right to stand in the way of true love ...so my answer would YES!!
  • Yeah, but as long as they aren't ugly!
  • If they are old enough to get married then who they marry is up to them and I would have no say in it. All I would want for my child is for them to be happy, if this person made them happy I would be all for it, no matter what colour, race, or gender they maybe.
  • Frankly, I don't give a flying care about what the persons' race, sexuality, religion...whatever!...is. So as long as two people are in LOVE, that is what counts. Fake, paid-in-cash "love" doesn't count.
  • is that really any of your business.
  • Duh! Of course! And for the record I have never used the word "duh" before in an answer on answerbag. A first time for everything I guess. I was the product of a "mixed race" marriage. Worked for me! Two thumbs up to mixed race marriage!
  • I have no problem with the issues of interracial marriages. My second son married a Korean and my daughter is married to an English. My family is fast becoming a united nation.
  • Why not ! mind compatibility is more important for a successful relationship of marriage
  • why???? OMG thats pretty arrogant.... how about what makes them happy, the only thing separating people is the amount of pigment in their skin, and that should make someone think different???? how lame
  • Yes I'm white my girlfriend is Asian. I don't see the issue, this isn't 1950 anymore. My kids don't care that my new woman is asian either, in fact they adore her, as do I.
  • Yes, we are all the same on the inside it's just our skin color that is different.
  • I would hope that my children wouldn't need or even want my permission to marry. Whether or not I'd want them to marry a person of a different skin color would depend on that person's character, past and potential -- just as it does if he would be of my own skin color.
  • If thats what they want, i wont mind at all
  • hell. i ll even let them marry someone with a different anatomy!
  • there is nothing wrong in colors
  • By the time my son gets married, it will be long after I 'let' him do anything. Hell, He's only 2 now, and there isn't a whole lot of "Mom let me", going on as it is! When my son wishes to marry, I will support him in whomever he decides on no mater the color, the gender, or the creed. As long as they are happy, nothing will be judged by me.
