Interracial dating asian male white female
In 2015, that number stood at 11 million – 10% of all married people.
The share has tripled since 1980, when 3% of married people – about 3 million altogether – had a spouse of a different race or ethnicity.
And it rises to 46% for those with a bachelor’s degree or higher.
The same patterns and trends emerge when looking separately at newlywed men and women; there are no overall gender differences in intermarriage by educational attainment.
In 2015, 13% of recently married men with a high school diploma or less and 14% of women with the same level of educational attainment had a spouse of another race or ethnicity, as did 19% of recently married men with some college and 18% of comparable women.
Even though intermarriage has not been increasing for these two groups, they remain far more likely than black or white newlyweds to marry someone of a different race or ethnicity. Among the half of Hispanic newlyweds who are immigrants, 15% married a non-Hispanic. At the same time, the share of white newlyweds declined by 15 points and the share of black newlyweds held steady.
About three-in-ten Asian newlyweds (29%) have a spouse of a different race or ethnicity. For newly married Hispanics and Asians, the likelihood of intermarriage is closely related to whether they were born in the U. The size of each racial and ethnic group can also influence intermarriage rates by affecting the pool of potential marriage partners in the “marriage market,” which consists of all newlyweds and all unmarried adults combined.
Since then, intermarriage rates have steadily climbed.
