What a great thread, and a great way to celebrate diversity! πŸ™‚

My nationality is Danish. Both my parents have Jewish ancestry. On my mother’s side it’s mainly German Jewish, but on my father’s side it’s Sephardic Jewish, so he’s darker looking. I’d say he looks Italian or Spanish, and my paternal grandfather was VERY Middle-Eastern looking. Aside from the Jewish parts, both my parents have a variety of North European/Scandinavian ancestry. So I’m kinda mixed, but it doesn’t really look like it (light skin, blonde hair and blue eyes).

Fiance is really mixed! Most people think he’s Filippino mixed with something else but both his parents were actually born in Pakistan. His mom is ethnically “Hazara” which is an ethnic group from Afghanistan, that originates from Mongolia, so she looks Asian but darker skinned. His father is a mix of Hazara, Punjabi (what most Pakistanis/Indians are) and Persian. So Fiance is really different looking, and he speaks 7 languages!

And oh, to top it off, Fiance was born in Denmark like me, but has a Norwegian citizenship because his father has it too. 

Obviously we are VERY excited to see what our kids will look like, and most of our friends are too πŸ˜€

I’m not married yet, but we’re planning to get engaged soon! My boyfriend is German, Italian, and French. I’m 3/4 Japanese, Irish, German, and French and I was born and raised in Hawaii. When children have white and some other ethnicity we refer to them as hapa, which means mixed in Hawaiian. We always say that hapa babies are the cutest!

He’s Guyanese, English, Portuguese and more (he doesn’t know completely). I am Scottish, Irish and English mostly. I actually did an ancestry DNA test recently and am 99% European, I didn’t know anyone could be so white. πŸ˜›

Me and my then boyfriend now husband, we live in the same cheap rent area neighborhood. That was how we met, dated and married… Our distance is very close, his apartment is like 5 minutes within walking distance to my apartment. We were friends prior to dating, pretty much we see each others everyday due to our close distance… It kindda awkward; but he is my neighbor, my friend, my boyfriend, and now is my husband.

I’m Asian (Chinese-American) and hubby he is Black (African-American)

thestaircase4:  why do you keep rejoining with different handles? 

We’re both Australian but he is ango heritage and I am French / South African / Greek second and first generations respectively. I opened his eyes to great food and passion and he helps me stay grounded πŸ™‚

I am half French half English, born in England and moved over to Australia when I was 16, my Fiance is half Australian and half German, so our babies will be 3 quarters European lol. I am also planning on getting them in for British citizen’s when they are old enough πŸ™‚

I just skimmed through parts of this thread and all I kept thinking about was the food!  The amazing ethnic food that a lot of you have on not just one but both sides.  Each combination was better than the last!

Our nationality is both American, and in a way so is our ethincity because it is so diluted and so far removed from its origin.  I think I am English, Irish, French Canadian, German, maybe some polish.  I’m not really sure about mine though, my parents just guessed based on the family names of their elder family members.

Husband is a similar make up, but claims to be 50% polish – though he is estranged from that side and has been for a long time so I don’t know if he’s too sure that there’s nothing else in there.

lim3:  I just skimmed through parts of this thread and all I kept thinking about was the food! <br /><br />Ha! I like the way you think! 

I think I may have already posted to this thread, but I’m too lazy to scroll through It all. So, sorry if I’m repeating myself. My husband is Vietnamese and I’m Caucasian (pretty much all Irish on both sides). I did our ‘welcome baskets’ with food goodies from both cultures. πŸ™‚

Both Irish… We’d have to go pretty far back to figure out if we’ve Celtic or Viking blood or both!! Both families lived in Ireland as far back as we can look. He has pale skin and red hair and I have pale skin and blonde hair. 

MrsYokiman:  Thats a lovely idea!

SophBee:  that is incredible! I (only) speak 5 languages and am already confused as to what to pass on to my kids one day. One of those 5 is my FI’so mother tongue though. If you have children, what language does/will your Fiance speak to them? Very curious as I try to figure this out for myself
