Scandinavia – Find Your Love In The Faroe Islands is quite the challenge these days. Are you up for a visit to the Faroe Islands? I may be. . I was interviewed by Anna Poulsen of KVF, Faroese media two weeks ago. I should have the link but the interview is in Faroese so I doubt most would understand anyway. I am trying for a project later this year in Iceland and the Faroe Islands. I would like to take a few ladies who have expressed interest in finding love in the Faroes for a visit to see what we can see (and who we can see)
As I am always researching matters pertaining interracial families, I came across a post on The Salt Collective written by Liz Lin entitled. How Do You Raise A Multiracial Child?. As woman of Chinese descent, Lin’s experience differs from many of ours. But as a mother, it is not so different. We all want the best for our children. We want them to work hard, thrive and be successful.
Swirl Date and Marry has noticed that more black women are taking the chance at online dating. Some give up, some hang in there and actually find their future husbands. You can meet a mate almost anywhere like at the supermarket, library or bookstore, coffee shop, at a bar, or online. Although online dating is just one of many ways to meet other singles, it is one of the easiest ways to get yourself out there. There is still a stigma associated with online dating but that is fading fast due to the success of many couples who met online. Most eventually marry and many even have families and are happy.
Who knew that discussions and literature about zombies could spark a romance? Well that is what happened in the case of Allison and Amir, an absolutely lovely couple . I found their story on MunaLuchi Bride.
Nigeria, Ghana and a few other African countries are excluded from many online dating sites because of the scams and schemes coming out of those countries, but those who persevere can find love. Micky and Faith were able to find love as many are doing despite the negativity from the various online sites. I say hang in there and keep going. We can see it pays off for many!
Last year, the cereal brand Cheerios released a commercial that featured an interracial couple and their biracial daughter. The racist backlash against seeing a black man with a white woman was so severe that Cheerios had to disable comments on its YouTube account. During the Super Bowl this year, the brand double-downed on its efforts to be reflective of a diverse nation and released a second commercial featuring the same family. In the new ad, the mother is pregnant with the couple’s second child. This commercial was marked with far less backlash.

Wow I came across this tragic story that happened around the end of June 2013 in Belgrade, Serbia. An Ivorian woman named Sabina Maric brutally murdered her husband Branka (UN pilot) and tried to kill herself in an attempted murder suicide. Sabina Maric who recovered after taking pills and stabbing herself said she did it because her husband was leaving her and their two young sons for a Sudanese woman. She used a drill to murder her husband who was under the influence of drugs and alcohol after stuffing his mouth with a rag. I can’t even imagine using a drill on someone’s head.

According to Bloomberg, Mark Zuckerberg just became the sixth-richest person on Earth. Priscilla did not do half bad. As a matter of fact she did great in choosing a great husband and provider to her, Max and any more children they have.
For a long time, online dating carried a stigma which made many people embarrassed to say they met their significant other online. Have a swipe through Tinder profiles and you will see many people suggesting, “We’ll say we met at the movies” – anywhere else but on Tinder, POF, Facebook, Twitter, or any of the other places people have begun relationships online.
I have been raised in a very open-minded family. My mother, has always been exceptional. Even during the 60’s when the Civil Rights fight was raging, many kids of color would not help the Caucasian kids learn about their culture. Our school was now integrated school and the questions and interest was sincere. My mom, took a stand and bridged the gap.

I am all for the short courtships. When two people are on the same page and committed to making their marriage work, it usually does. As in the marriage of Mark and Charmaine Davis. What a wonderfully romantic story of love and family.
