These enraged abusers don’t care who else they hurt or kill trying to get to their victim.

Words hurt: How to deal with negativity. Unless you have somehow mastered the art of simply not feeling then odds are if you are in an interracial relationship that you’ve been called names or made to feel sad and hurt. We’re only human and most of our communicating is done through talking. It’s only natural to be affected by what other’s say to and about you. However it’s important to remember that their opinion is just that; theirs. We don’t control what other people say or think. We can however control the way we react.

I love to get fabulous stories like the one Jonette T. shared:
My name is Jonette and my sexy fiancé is Cullen. We meet via social dating sites and discovered we only lived two blocks from one another. I have dated out of my race but never an Asian man. I stayed open minded and a year later not only are we are still going strong but we are planning for a super hero fall wedding next year. We both have two kids and one grandson each so it’s awesome blending our families.
Patricia Shares: My husband Jay and I met in Air Force tech school.

Seven years and two children (Ares and Maya) later we’re still going strong.
I was thrilled to get this photo submission from Nigel Anderson. It is nice to hear from white men declaring their hearts for a black woman they found and with whom they have fallen deeply in love. The Andersons have a real “His, Mine and Ours” situation going on. Congrats on your new marriage and best wishes to this beautiful family!
Joshelyn shares: It was love at first sight! Craig and I met online and got engaged within 3 months. And 9 months later married! (When you know, you know)! Our wedding just past September 13th.
Marriage is a huge commitment and can be very scary.
It can feel like you are about to make a risky jump into the abyss. Hence, for some, Cohabitation seems to be the easier and yet safer choice; is it?
Various researches have found that marriage has a huge health benefits to it versus cohabitation . It has been reasoned that perhaps the partners feel somewhat secure which eases a lot more mental strain.

With the media and black women weighing on the Janay Rice’s relationship with her husband Ray Rice, it made me ask ‘Are there any couples that do not argue?
It is highly unlikely. What I have found is that the happiest couples are those who know how to argue in a mature manner where no one is demoralizing or violent with each other. I am always amazed at my friends and their relationships.
