The numbers are the relative rates at which interracial couples get divorced i.e.
a pairing between a black husband and white wife is 1.62 times more likely to divorce than a pairing between a white husband and white wife.
In terms of out-marriage, Hispanic males who identified as White had non-Hispanic wives more often than other Hispanic men.
The table shows that among whites who out-married in 2008, there were different patterns by gender in the race of their spouses.
A slightly higher proportion of white women than white men married a Hispanic person (51% versus 46%), and a similar share of each gender married someone in the other group. S.-raised are much more likely to be married to Whites than their non-U. Of all the Asian American groups studied, Indian Americans showed the highest rates of endogamy, with the overwhelming majority of Indian American women and men marrying Indian American partners.
Indian Americans were also the only Asian American group with higher outmarriage for men, whereas all other Asian American groups had higher outmarriage for women.
Likewise, since Hispanic is not a race but an ethnicity, Hispanic marriages with non-Hispanics are not registered as interracial if both partners are of the same race (i.e.a Black Hispanic marrying a non-Hispanic Black partner).In 2006, 88% of foreign-born White Hispanic males were married to White Hispanic females.The proportion of interracial marriages is markedly different depending on the ethnicity and gender of the spouses.The differing ages of individuals, culminating in the generation divides, have traditionally played a large role in how mixed ethnic couples are perceived in American society.White wife/Black husband marriages are twice as likely to divorce by the 10th year of marriage compared to White/White couples, while White wife/Asian husband marriages are 59% more likely to end in divorce compared to White/White unions.However, a 2009 study a year later by Yaunting Zhang and Jennifer Van Hook on behalf of Journal of Marriage and Family using a larger sample size than the previous study produced different results with Asian female/White male marriages shown as the least likely to divorce of any marriage pairing.The number of interracial marriages has steadily continued to increase since the 1967 Supreme Court ruling in Loving v.Virginia, but also continues to represent an absolute minority among the total number of wed couples.Interracial marriages have typically been highlighted through two points of view in the United States: Egalitarianism and cultural conservatism.Gurung & Duong (1999) compiled a study relating to mixed-ethnic relationships ("MER"s) and same-ethnic relationships ("SER"s), concluding that individuals part of "MER"s generally do not view themselves differently from same-ethnic couples.
