Familial and cultural obligations loom large even for those born and raised in Britain.
I don't want to put my supportive immediate family through the scorn of "community. It's often a phase that Asians go through but before contemplating the long-term difficulties of marrying into another community when they generally decide against it. Of-course I'd think twice if Brad Pitt came calling! Societal pressure isn't all one sided. They're as stingy as hell! They don't ever want to buy you dinner unless there's bed and breakfast on offer as a payoff!
Thirtysomethings were the most likely to contemplate marriage.

Some only dated white men and actively sought a long-term future with one. Boris Becker likes a particular type of black girl. People go for different looks and that look may be a specific race. Ultimately one happily married woman summed it thus; "Our personalities fitted, It was a better cultural fit. Also, the few that do date interracially usually date non-white guys who grew up in majority white places take for instance Siya Kolisi Springbok rugby player and Mmusi Maimane. This is in no way a redpill rant.
Its just to point out to white guys that they will have it easier than us in this regard compared to non-white guys. Also, I can guarentee that if you are a white far left winger, with Slovo, Braam Fischer type attitudes, you will do well with women of color. I have seen this from a few of these guys at University. Hamster Resident Rodent Nov 6, Joined Aug 22, Messages 29, I rarely see a white male black female couple, but I often see a black male white female couple.
Easy, I dunno, but a deck-top seems to be the more popular combination. White- Black is not the most common interracial pairing in SA. According to stats, it is actually colored female- black male. Over recent years, there have also been increasing unions between South Asian immigrants and black women.
I think its usually of mutual benefit as the guy gets some level of security and the lady gets a breadwinner most often they are poor women I think these guys will be classified as Indian once they get naturalized. Joined Dec 20, Messages The race obsession continues. Joined Jun 4, Messages 3, I'm a white guy with an Indian fiance but doubt I'll ever get her family's approval. No matter what I'll never date a white girl again though.
From my experiences as an Indian male, most Indian families are supportive of their children dating whites especially the modern, and especially Christian ones.

Indian girls also put white guys on a pedestal. I dont blame them, its probably due to media influences. Most of the guys paraded in Western media are white and usually Indian guys are shown depicting stereotypes in Western Media.
I know some Indian girls who parade their white boyfriends as if they are some form of Gods. It probably also has something to do with the admiration of fair skin by a lot of Indian people which sickens me. The parents you are dealing with are probably old school Hindu's but most Indian parents are generally supportive if the guy is white. I doubt you will have to go through anything compared to a non-white getting the approval of white parents and I think if it was a non-white guy in your position, it would have been harder for him.
Joined Jul 6, Messages 30, More than half of the marriages end up in divorces here. Women, on the other hand, are not necessarily seeking marriage with the purpose of getting children, as they can go to sperm banks. Mind you their numbers are exploding these days.
So you basically do not need a man today to get a child. Whereas men in western countries are increasingly finding themselves rejected and unable to fit into this role where you have to try a lot of dating without much success, the easy way out is, of course, to look for a wife from abroad. And astonishingly, most of these marriages are successful.
In , interracial marriage was illegal in 29 states in the US. Today it is legal in all states. Interracial and international marriages are on the rise.

It is not only Asian men but also Western men who want to marry Asian women. So the competition is on the rise. Statistics also shows that the marriages of Danish, Swedish and Norwegian men marrying Thai or Indian women tend to last longer than those of Indian men marrying Danish, Swedish or Norwegian wives. In this changing sociological scenario, I feel at ease. Why should a Danish bus driver not get an Indian wife when he is willing to cook food and ready to learn a new language and, most of all, willing to accept her for her original skin color?
While we in India love our Bollywood stars to go through a skin color change, want them to look fairer, whiter, and after marriage we put pressure on women to give birth to boys and are less accepting of girl children, then what is wrong when someone who lives a few thousand kilometers away wants to marry someone from India without any precondition and pressure of giving birth to a son? I have met several Indian girls who are happily married to Danish men and seem to be living a good life here.
I find it amazing, though, that those looking for happy conjugal life in the West increasingly look towards the East, whereas we are looking towards the West for living a comfortable life. Inter-caste marriages, inter-state marriages in India and at the global level, international marriages have come to stay, and they will be transforming the world and the way we perceive countries and cultures at a faster rate than we imagine. When we see the gathering of world leaders, EU leaders and especially leaders of Asian countries on TV, you see men overrepresented, and then we tend to erroneously conclude that men still dominate the world as they did some 50 years ago.
It gives a false image. Man as a gender has become a polarized concept. They are doing the dirty, dangerous and difficult jobs, dying significantly earlier than women. A homeless drug addict living on the streets of a European capital has just a few years to live before he becomes yet another statistic of a person found dead in the street.
This is a dark and hidden side of being a man.
