I would mind, I was married to a Japanese woman from 1965 until she passed away in 2002.

I would probably be more concerned about religious differences.

No, why should I mind? My whole family is mixed. And if you think about it everyone's is to a certain degree, at least.

No I would not mind at all.

Several members of my extended family have done that, why would anyone mind?

I would be concerned if my child partnered with someone with massively different values or lifestyle - but that is not a race issue.

I would not mind. We may be different color but we all bleed the same, red. My extended family is mixed as well, didn't go well with my parents but they did adapt to it eventually. Strength of character and personality mean so much more than the color of one's skin.

I think with age we become more relaxed with ourselves and can appreciate our chilrens happiness is paramount.
When I was younger I might of had a twinge of regret....only a very small twinge that I would of kept to myself and got over very quickly.
Now if my single son introduced me to someone he would like to spend time with I’d be thrilled any race male or fem

One of my daughters went out with a boy from a Muslim family for a while when she was a student. I was concerned because I knew his family would not approve if he had been honest with them. He hadn't told them. We made him welcome in our home and waited to see what transpired. It fizzled out - she is a feminist which might have caused problems - but they were still in contact for a long time afterwards. There was also a romance for a time with a lovely Jewish guy.
You have to roll with it.
