8 Women In Interracial Relationships Reveal What They Experience That Other Couples Don’t

Too many people feel entitled to having opinions on the future of their babies.

Very strange comments about “half babies.” Not realizing that 1- I have no idea what my heritage or race even is, and 2- no bio. kids for me.

We also get really elitist and eugenic-y comments since we’re both super tall, about NBA babies. As if you’re guaranteed a spot just for being tall? Or that being a model would be my hypothetical child’s calling? it’s creepy

His mom wasn’t really on board with the fact that I wasn’t Indian (I am Filipino). We are separated now and I think that was one factor that put a strain on our relationship.
