When these foundations are operating alongside the foundation of different cultural roots, as in intercultural marriages, problems and disagreement oftentimes occur. King made publicly available on the Education Resources Information Center, unions between White males and non-White females (and between Hispanics and non-Hispanic persons) have similar or lower risks of divorce than White-White marriages, unions between white male-black female last longer than white-white pairings or white-Asian pairings.
A similar principle of spiritual purity is laid out in the New Testament, but it has nothing to do with race: “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. Just as the Israelites (believers in the one true God) were commanded not to marry idolaters, so Christians (believers in the one true God) are commanded not to marry unbelievers.Many intercultural couples report conflict arising over issues of how to carry out child raising and religious worship as well.Dealing with racism from outside sources is also a common area of potential conflict.For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? The Bible never says that interracial marriage is wrong.Anyone who forbids interracial marriage is doing so without biblical authority.
