INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE Interracial marriage is the concept of wedding where the bride and the groom do not belong to the same race. From the past ages, the topic of interracial marriage has been a very sensitive subject. People of different countries hold different views about the concept of interracial marriage (Wang, 2015). The opinion piece outlines the fact that interracial marriage constitutes a very important arena in the vast field of sociology. It is a sociological topic worthy of elaborate deliberation and exploration. This article discusses a brief history about interracial marriage, the perceptions regarding interracial marriage, how interracial marriage benefits the newlywed couples, the children of mixed race unions and the society, at large. The world is divided between three segments of people regarding approval for interracial marriage. The first segment of people is totally against the concept of interracial marriage. They believe that a culture or a race should not be diluted by wedding two persons, who belong to different races. The second segment of people holds the belief that every person is born equal and must have the right to wed a person irrespective of race. They believe that true love transcends all the boundaries of race, color, caste and creed. The third segment of people possesses a negligent attitude towards interracial marriage. They do not care much about races. They put more value on the personality and the temperament of the two persons, who are to be wedded. According to them, the subject of races in a marriage should be left aside since the compatibility level of the two persons is the actual recipe of a happy marital union and not the other way ( Herman & Campbell, 2012).
