Carl shares his romantic story. This is my wife April. Our sisters were best friends. They somehow thought that April and I would be a good for each other, so they set about introducing us. (I think they just wanted to be related lol). Well little did the sisters know that April and I would make such a true love connection.
I am saddened to see the amount of vitriol Derek Luke recently received about his Latina wife Sophia after posting their photo on Instagram. They were high school sweethearts and have been married for 17 years. That is quite an accomplishment and they are to be congratulated.

Walking down the aisle, between my two mothers – Rose, the woman who’d given birth to me, and Renee Loux who’d adopted me, I couldn’t have been happier. My identical twin sister Teyolla, Tee for short, and I had talked about this day from as early as I could remember. My only sadness was that Tee, 20, couldn’t watch me get married, because she was waiting outside the door, preparing to get hitched herself.
I am pleased to introduce a new blog called: Are Those Your Kids? Raising Biracial Kids In Today’s World. I was recently contacted by new blog owner Diedre Anthony. Her column is dedicated to raising biracial children. Here is an excerpt from this blog that has the potential to be a go to source for those raising biracial children.
When I first heard about this tragic, tragic story, the first thing that came to mind was how the backlash of anti black woman / white male marriage and relationships would ensue. But I had to quickly analyze the case with the information I gathered from media. Michael “Augustine” Bournes for reasons still unknown to authorities put a bullet in the head of his wife Arie Arlynn Lee and their 3 children, Arie Lee Bournes, 1; Woodrow Lee Bournes, 4; and Augustine Lee Bournes, 5. Michael “Augustine” Bournes.
Crystal shares with IMF. This is my husband Andrew. We met on November 7, 2014 online. Within 2 days, Andrew and I knew that we were soul mates and meant to be together. Andrew is a perfect gentleman and I could not asked for a better man. God was present and blessed our union as we got married on April 26, 2015. We are so deeply in love! I am so blessed to be married this wonderful man!
I was almost blown away by this story. I say almost because having researched vintage interracial marriage and relationships, I have seen so many similar stories except that it is usually between black and whites. I am still a sucker for happy endings. Read the amazing story of Helen Gladys (Emery) Aoki and Gunjiro Aoki, pictured in March 1909. She lost her citizenship for marrying a Japanese man as interracial marriage was prohibited even in Washington State at this time. Fascinating and awesome love. The story told by great niece Brenda Wong Aoki at History Link.org

My name is Kristi Thompson, I started dating my husband Terrell on October 22, 2004 — our senior year of high school. But I had a crush on him since the 6th grade. I knew it would be a problem with my parents but I did not think it would be as big of a problem as it turned out to be.
Antigua is quite the place to have a wedding!
About 3 1/2 months ago, the last of this darling, beautiful and happy couple, Jan and Quiana (Jenkins) Pietzrak’s murderers was sentenced to death. The families will always miss their beloved parted ones, but after 6 years, they could finally start healing. Neither Jan or Quiana got a chance to live out the happy lives they were planning.
As a life coach who coaches women on high standards in looking for quality men I was particularly intrigued to read this post about Tia Mowry and her husband Cory Hardrict. Some women fall for anything and accept a man with no job, car, prospects nor potential for anything that remotely resembles being a good husband, father and provider. I advise clients of which to steer clear of these types and run the other way. They are disasters waiting to happen. I coach women on how to carefully vet men and eventually they will know how to spot keepers. In addition I recommend my clients read The Rules.
Some states allow first cousins to marry. Some of those states allow it with restrictions and some have none. A Spanish speaking couple I knew had asked me to help them learn what they needed for a civil ceremony in Denver back in the 1980s. So I checked into the process for them and found out all this other information about marriage laws in Colorado. I always found it funny about the cousins getting married and just tucked it away in the back of my mind.
