SPCM3820 Chapter 8: Interracial Romantic Relationships Miscegenation is the marriage of people from different racial/ethnic groups. - Antimiscegenation laws: laws originally created to keep marriages from happening between Whites and non-Whites. Structural Theory : suggests that demographics (i.e. socioeconomic status, education, occupation, residence, etc.) and mutual attraction contribute to the initiation, development, and maintenance of an interracial marriage. - Endogamy : occurs when people marry within their group (racial/ethnic group). - Homogamy : a slightly different approach and refers to a person’s preference for a mate who is the same in racial/ethnic background, social status, educational background and/or religion. Racial Motivation Theory : states that interracial marriages occur because of a racial difference, whereby at least one partner finds the racially different other more appealing because of his or her race. -
