For those who may have “concerns” and major “heartaches” with the idea of a person of one race marrying a person of a different race, may I emphatically state that it is not the color of the skin that will hold the marital union together. Also for the record, I declare that it is not for the protection of any future progeny that two people of different races should not be joined together in matrimony, for children care absolutely nothing about the color of a person’s skin. Children are taught and learn prejudice in time.
I further proclaim that in the entirety of the canon of scriptures (which I have read several times in its entirety in my young life) there is no commandment, edict, verdict, or decree that prohibits two people of different races from being joined together in matrimony. Therefore, religion should not be used as a deterrent or supposed viable argument either.
What will keep a marital relationship in tact is the fact that God is in the picture from the very start. If He is not in the picture; if He has not put His blessings upon the relationship, then no matter the race of the two people involved, that relationship is built upon a sandy foundation that will eventually erode and wash away with the passing of time. The other important factor in the ties that bind in a marital relationship, regardless of the race of the couple, is that there exists genuine love between the two of them.
“What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder” (Mark 10:9).
