Choosing a partner based on physical properties/race?

Postby MikePryor » August 5th, 2012, 3:55 am

I'm a Black man, and I am attracted to Japanese women. I'm planning on moving to Japan sometime next year as well. If I am lucky, I may marry a Japanese woman. I think that this will put any children that we have at a disadvantage, however, since Japan can be cruel to products of mixed marriages (especially when one partner is Black). My children may also have a tough time blending in in America. For these reasons, I have toyed with the ideas of not having children, or marrying a Black woman in order to have children that will be able to fit in.

Do you think that people should sacrifice what they are attracted to for their children, or just go ahead and have children with the person that they love regardless of how the children will come out?

I do not think that you should sacrifice your happiness for your children, or not have any children because of that. That is not fair to you. Your children may not be accepted by everyone, but in reality is anyone accepted by everyone?

Hi MikePryor

I will suggest you to not to marry with Japanese women. Marry with a girl that lives in your country.
