Wonderful article. I too found myself in a mixed race marriage, not once but twice. I had but a small taste of what you have written about. I am presently happily married to a wonderful Japanese woman twenty years younger. And I have had my share of comments about that too (cradle snatcher etc). Even one of her uncles was dead set against us getting married and wasted no opportunity in letting his feelings known. So you are not alone. My experiences haven't been as strong as yours, and I suppose that's to do with being black. I feel for you. But love has and will get us through it. Be strong and be safe. And please do have a read of ' So what is it like to be in an inter-racial marriage ?'
