It’s a risk!

“The literature on interracial families has examined social stigmas attached to interracial relationships but has not thoroughly documented whether crossing racial boundaries increases the risk of divorce. Using the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth (Cycle VI), we compare the likelihood of divorce for interracial couples to that of same‐race couples. Comparisons across marriage cohorts reveal that, overall, interracial couples have higher rates of divorce, particularly for those marrying during the late‐1980s. We also find race and gender variation. Compared to White/White couples, White female/Black male, and White female/Asian male marriages were more prone to divorce; meanwhile, those involving non‐White females and White males and Hispanics and non‐Hispanic persons had similar or lower risks of divorce.”

Similar is the best they can do. Similar isn’t scientific enough!

We need more recent data but this is damning considering the ways they must’ve tortured statistics to produce that result. And can they actually divorce, financially? If there’s financial abuse, no, an exclusion criterion.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
