Yep! I am Caucasian and my fiance is Asian-Vietnamese to be exact! He always jokes that we aren’t really interacial because I have "asian" in my race, hence the caucASIAN. Funny guy! I must say when it is just the two of us-I don’t notice it. He is the love of my life and my other half! He was born in Orange County. We are so much alike-that us being from different cultures never really crossed my mind. What I do love and honor about him is he loves the fact he was born in America, but he never trys to cover up his ancestry. (That is something many of the previous guys I dated had done and it disappointed me greatly)
I do notice it when we are out and about ..moreso in Orange County then in LA. We live in LA and Orange County. It is very common to see a white male with an asian female. but not the other way around.
I would love to hear of any similar stories!

I live in the OC too! My finace is half Chinese and I’m caucasian for sure. Mr PK identifies more with his Asian side then the other. He does have Irish features including freckles (which I have too) so people always say in a weird way we look alike!
But I am right there with you, lots of Caucasian Men with Asian women out here, and I don’t see many of the other way around.

I’m whitish, but I’ve always joked that I’m an egg (white on the outside, yellow on the inside). After two 3 year relationships with Asian guys, I was sure that I was going to get married to an Asian and have beautiful hapa haoli babies).
It didn’t happen for the long term, but I never had any problems with getting strange looks or comments (only once in New Jersey on the train into the City)… In California, no one cares!
There aren’t as many in our situation, but they’re out there!

I agree that it’s more common to see white men with asian women (me and my husband) not the other way around. Off the top of my head, I can only think of a handful of couples that I konw in real life where the guy is asian and the girl is white. On weddingbee there was Mrs. Cream Puff and Mr. Cream Puff 🙂

Oh and I just realized Mrs. Tulip and Mr. Tulip are another weddingbee couple. I think Miss Stiletto and Mr. Stiletto are too…

I am caucasian and my fi is asian (Indian so he doesn’t think that is asian) which is a huge running joke. Especially since in a sociology class I took the teacher said that people from India are caucasian but yeah we get looks but we don’t notice them that much anymore. They are usually from Indian people not white but maybe that is a bay area thing because everything is diverse.

I am Caucasian (Greek-American) and my fiance is Filipino-Australian (born in Philippines, raised in Australia) so it’s an interesting mix especially when it comes to wedding planning!
In terms of looks or stares, we never really got any in NYC where we live, but when we went to the Philippines, we were stared at and whispered about from here to kingdom come. The only "Americans" that you usually see are middle-aged men so to see a twenty-something girl was crazy!
According to my Mother-In-Law, I looked like a "doll" (a rather tall and blue eyed one to boot) – I flew into Manila ahead of my fiance because I was flying in from Japan so I met up with his aunts then we went for lunch at Jolibee (their version of McDonald’s) while we waited for him to land…the girl behind the counter was staring at me so pointedly and giggling it made me feel a bit uncomfortable. I lived in Japan for 18 months and never felt like I stuck out there, it was such an odd feeling.

My sister is caucasian with blonde hair and brown eyes and very fair skinned compaired to the rest of my Italian family! Her husband is Korean. He was born in Korea and lived in an orphanage there till he was 3. I really never thought twice about it and don’t notice anyone givig them weird looks. They live in St. Paul and I live in Chicago, so maybe it’s also a big city thing.

- Wedding: September 2008 - A tiny town just outside of Glacier National Park
Two of our very close friends are white female/asian male. She’s a very petit, midwestern gal, and he’s taiwanese. Their little half-asian baby is the CUTEST THING EVER.

One of my best friends is a Korean man, and quite a few people thought we would end up getting married after my ex and I split up! Ethnicity doesn’t really matter to me, if anything it makes things a little more interesting. My Fiance is white, German/Polish and I’m Polish through and through with a smidge of german. I think its all about perception, and as long as your happy it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.

well, i’m not engaged *yet* (in the waiting boat) but i’ve been with my bf for more than 5 years, and i’m white, and he’s malaysian indian. it’s gotten so i don’t really notice any looks any more.. but a few years ago i visited malaysia with him, and everyone there stared at me! kids, elderly people, store clerks, everyone. most of his family lives in a small village, so i guess many of them had never seen a white person before, and he said that they probably assumed i was a movie star there to shoot a video 🙂
i think diversity is something to be cherished, and i know i’ve learned a lot from him simply because our cultural upbringing is soooo different

When I lived in So Cal, I dated a half chinese guy. i’m 1/4 korean. It’s pretty common on the coasts! Here in the midwest, it’s still kind of taboo because some retards are still racist about it. *sigh* what can you do?!
I think happas are the prettiest ever though! Cutie little happa babies .
My Fiance is straight up white though. Irish, Polish, German, definitely european. Sometimes I forget I’m "white" too because I’m always very wary of the fact that I’m part Korean because I love that so much!
Speaking of which, when we travelled through Arkansas once, the women all glared at my family weird because my mom is half korean. They told us a bathroom didn’t work, and then we saw this nasty white hoosier woman come out of it! So, needles to say, the midwest needs to catch up with my OC roots

This is not wedding/weddingbee related, but John and Kate (as in John and Kate + 8) come to mind. Talk about some adorable children…
