Fiance is half black, half white and I’m white. I wasn’t sure how my parents were going to take it at first, I know they are accepting of everyone but they grew up in a really small, all white Irish/Italian part of NY and interracial dating did not happen. It was difficult enough for my aunt to marry an Italian man. But everyone has met Fiance and they love him!

FMIL’s side, who are white, love me (or so I think) we see them pretty often and no problems so far. FFIL’s side, who are black, immediately family- I love them, they are hysterical and they make jokes about dating white girls but FFIL’s girlfriend and myself are both white. The rest of that side of the family I haven’t met most of them but I can only hope for the best when I do.

They LOVED him. I know he’s great, but I was just in a really abusive relationship with a man my parents HATED so he probably looked even better in comparison, lol.

@imageeksowhat:  I was in a similar situation. I am pretty sure they would have loved anyone I brought home in comparision to my ex. And no they actually love him for him now that they have spent time with him!

Mom loved him, my grandmother said “I love men who look like that” HAHA Dad said (when he was still with us) “I knew she would end up with someone like that” Not sure what that meant.  My brother said “he’s kind of a little guy ant her?” LOL Sisters both thought he was nice and well dressed.  My older nieces 22 and 25 said “it’s it possible for you to date outside your nationality?” LOL

All in all everything said something different to pick on me but loved him. LOL

They probably wondered why I kept bringing home these skinny white boys. Lol. They grew to like him, but our families had to get used to the interracial thing. Not everyone, but a few people in both families. By the time we got engaged, my cousins had adopted him, and I’d been calling his grandmother “grandma” for years. So it’s all good, now. 🙂

It seems like most of you guys have awesome parents! My story is a little different. My dad liked him under the pretense of a lie. I was 16 and he 19 at the time, and my dad thought he was 17. Once my dad found out he was 19 (going on 20) he was pissed and forbade me from seeing him. He couldn’t understand what a 20 yr old would be doing with a 16 year old and played the whole “he only wants one thing” but we were determined and had a secret relationship until I was 17.5 and moved in with my grandpa (that’s a different story). I got to see him a lot more then and when I turned 18 I moved out and we’ve been inseperable since. Now my dad loves him to death, because he stuck around, and all my other family thinks he’s a great guy! Which he is! I’m so lucky!

My Dad was suspicious of Fiance right from the get go just because he was the ‘guy who was dating his daughter.’ DH could have been the President of the United States and my parents would have still given him the stank eye. But, now that we’re married they warmed up to him and really like him.

Race wasn’t an issue because I’m already mixed race (Asian & white), so my parents can’t really judge on that front.
