James and I have a fairly unique story. James was in the US Army Reserves, and his civilian job was working as a Sergeant at a local county jail. I started working at the jail as a correctional officer March 2005. When I first met him something caught my attention. We started dating that July. Not only were we of different races (him black, and me white), he was almost over 31 years older than me. The differences if anything made us stronger. We were connected on a deep level and were very compatible. Shortly after our wedding on April 7, 2012, James deployed to Kosovo.
My husband and I met through a 1800# dating advertisement on the radio. We had our first date Sept. 17, 1996, bonded immediately, had to many things in common, and it was love at first site on our first date. Dec 1996 three months later we got married on San Antonio River Walk in a very romantic setting, with a few family members and friends. Afterwards we took a carriage ride and to my surprise people applauded our union. Not only did we become husband and wife but we became business partners in the Insurance Industry. We love working together. He is my partner and friend in life.

On a daily basis we don’t consider that we are a mixed race couple or that our children are multiracial people. Honestly I sometimes forget. In the whirlwind of activity that makes up our family home, it’s easy to get lost in just living. As a family we Love, Laugh, Cry, Play, Dance, Eat, Celebrate and Mourn like any other family.
Anthony and I met on a social network. I was simply looking for a friend. At the time of us talking I had a boyfriend but things were rocky between him and I. A few months went by and my ex boyfriend and I broke up. I was completely sad but I felt a little better because I had Anthony there to comfort me. We started talking on the phone and texting a lot more. One thing turned into another and him and I made it official at 3a.m. on October 18,2011. Since we first laid eyes on each other we were inseparable.
My wife Vanessa and I have been married for 4 years now, since this past march 17th (Yes on St. Patrick’s Day and we weren't drunk lol). I’m black and was raised in Bronx, NY, while she’s German, and Puerto Rican. We meet in 2008 while I was in the Marine Corps through a mutual friend at the time, and she decided to message me on MySpace (shows how old I am lol). After 9 months of know each other I asked her to marry me and we started our lives together.

I am Andrew and am (white) and my girlfriend Rowena is (black). I am one who has been single throughout most of my life. I have read about interracial relationships and had no problems with any of them because love is color blind. I was born with autism and have struggled a lot in my life with it and have made it through all obstacles. There have been those who say that people with autism will never find true love, but it is same with those who would say that I would never make it in real life when I was 2 years old.
Me a white woman from Alabama and him a black man from Texas... It wasnt always smiling faces for us. But I told myself earily on "I will live to make myself happy, not others". The story goes.... We first met in "2000" on New Years threw mutual friends. As our friendship grew over time our realtionship did too. We welcomed our first daughter in "2006", married in "2008" and welcomed our second daughter just last year in "2011". I am very proud to say next month we will be celebrating our 4 year anniversary!
Truly a love story to last our life time!
