Just wondering if there are any couples like us out there…I am white, hubby is half white, half mexican. people always ask him what his ethnicity is…we hear everything! Are we still considered an inter racial couple? not that it matters to me, to me he’s 100% my husband, and nothing else. I’d also like to learn Spanish, but i don’t know how to do so without spending hundreds of dollars. my husband knows it, but he won’t be able to teach me all of it, probably but i want to know it so that we can teach our future kids will grow up knowing both English and Spanish.

I’m half white and half black, Boyfriend or Best Friend is white..so we are similar to you and I consider us an interracial couple.
As far as learning Spanish, I’m sure you can find places that teach language for a lesser cost. You can go to a community college or something.
Maybe for vacation go to a Spanish-speaking country and force yourself to pick up as much as you can. I think your husband should speak mainly Spanish to you, if you are serious about learning it, you’ll learn it if that’s the only way you communicate. That’s how my grandparents did it, they took a few classes (they were missionaries) and learned mainly by immersion.

My husband is white, and I am first-generation Mexican-American. To answer your question, I wouldn’t consider you to be interracial. My marriage is not interracial, in my opinion.
I’m sure someone would disagree with me (I had someone argue with me just yesterday when I answered “white” to a census question), but *shrug*
I would say consider purchasing a Spanish language textbook and working through it, maybe practicing with your husband.
