Our analyses show large differences in endogamy across groups. After taking compositional effects into account, we find that both structural and cultural group-level factors have significant effects on endogamy. Cultural explanations which focus on the role of norms and preferences play a more important role than structural explanations which focus on meeting and mating opportunities. Our results reinforce the common but untested interpretation of endogamy in terms of group boundaries. Intermarriage has long been a central issue in the literature on ethnic relations Alba and Nee ; Hwang, Saenz, and Aguirre ; Kalmijn ; Pagnini and Morgan ; Qian and Lichter First, it has been argued that intermarriage is an attractive behavioral indicator of the degree to which different groups in society accept each other as equals. Second, intermarriage is a form of interaction between groups because it connects not only the two spouses but also the social networks to which they belong. Third, intermarriage may reduce ethnic identities and prejudice in the long term because the children of mixed marriages are less likely to identify themselves with a single group Waters ; Xie and Goyette Fourth, high rates of intermarriage make it more difficult to delineate the boundaries of ethnic groups, thereby weakening the salience of ethnic definitions in society Davis Much has been written about the trends in intermarriage and the individual determinants of intermarriage Kalmijn
What happens when you fall in love across the religious divide?
What Buddhists Believe Venerable K. Sri Dhammananda Maha Thera. In Buddhism, marriage is regarded as entirely a personal, individual concern and not as a religious duty. M arriage is a social convention, an institution created by man for the well-being and happiness of man, to differentiate human society from animal life and to maintain order and harmony in the process of procreation. Even though the Buddhist texts are silent on the subject of monogamy or polygamy, the Buddhist laity is advised to limit themselves to one wife.
In His discourses, the Buddha gave various kinds of advice for married couples and for those who are contemplating marriage. The Buddha has said, “If a man.
Opposition to miscegenation, thereby preserving their race’s purity and nature, is a typical theme of racial supremacist movements. Though the notion that racial mixing is undesirable has arisen at different points in history, it gained particular prominence in Europe during the era of colonialism. Although the term “miscegenation” was formed from the Latin miscere “to mix” plus genus “race” or “kind”, and it could therefore be perceived as value-neutral, it is almost always a pejorative term used by people who believe in white racial superiority and purity.
In Spanish America, the term mestizaje , which is derived from mestizo —the blending of European whites and Indigenous peoples of the Americas , is used to refer to racial mixing. In the present day, the word miscegenation is avoided by many scholars, because the term suggests that race is a concrete biological phenomenon, rather than a categorization imposed on certain relationships. The term’s historical use in contexts that typically implied disapproval is also a reason why more unambiguously neutral terms such as interracial , interethnic or cross-cultural are more common in contemporary usage.
These words, much older than the term miscegenation , are derived from the Late Latin mixticius for “mixed”, which is also the root of the Spanish word mestizo. These non-English terms for “race-mixing” are not considered as offensive as “miscegenation”, although they have historically been tied to the caste system casta that was established during the colonial era in Spanish-speaking Latin America. Today, the mixes among races and ethnicities are diverse, so it is considered preferable to use the term “mixed-race” or simply “mixed” mezcla.
In Portuguese-speaking Latin America i. Intermarriage occurred significantly from the very first settlements, with their descendants achieving high rank in government and society. Conversely, people classified in censuses as black, brown “pardo” or indigenous have disadvantaged social indicators in comparison to the white population. The concept of miscegenation is tied to concepts of racial difference.

Is the growing multiracial population changing the US racial structure? Quantitative analyses of profiles drawn from the largest online dating website, combined with observer racial classifications of profile photos, reveal divergent patterns in racial preferences among multiracials who self-identify as part-Black compared with those who do not.
Non-Black multiracials express racial preferences that are more similar to Whites than to minorities, consistent with Whitening theories suggesting that these groups situate themselves closer to Whites and reinforce the existing racial hierarchy. In particular, among self-identified part-Black multiracials, those whom others view as non-Black are much more accepting of Whites as dates than are those whom others classify as Black.
Since preferences for dating Whites vary substantially among individuals who self-identify as part-Black depending upon their observed race, this suggests a decline in the salience of the one-drop rule, even while some aspects of Black exceptionalism persist among multiracials whom others classify solely as Black.

Leap of Faith: Interracial Relationships in Contemporary Malaysia
People assume that, because we are of different faiths, we must have major problems in our relationship. In fact, it has strengthened our bond.

Rutgers University Press is dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge for a wide range of readers. They enhance the work of their authors through exceptional publications that shape critical issues, spark debate, and enrich teaching. Rutgers also distributes books published by Bucknell University Press. Combining a narrative voice with vivid, passionate, and painful accounts of the families of death row inmates, the book demonstrates that crimes that lead to death sentences also devastate the families of those convicted.
These families, King argues, are the unseen victims of capital punishment. King challenges readers to question the morality of a punishment that victimizes families of the condemned and ripples out through future generations. Chapters tell the stories of families that have lost life savings supporting an accused loved one, endured intense public scrutiny, been subjected to harassment by the media, and are struggling to live with the inhumane treatment that their loved ones receive on death row.
The author also explores the unique nature of the grief that these families suffer. On a human level, this book is a powerful reminder that tragic events have tragic consequences that far outreach their immediate victims. At the same time, the accounts illustrate many of the flaws inherent in the judicial system—racial and economic bias, incompetent counsel, prosecutorial misconduct, the execution of juveniles, and wrongful convictions, some of which are only now being overturned because of recent advances in DNA technology.

From time immemorial, man has been preoccupied with the pursuit of happiness in life, from the cradle to the grave. He works and struggles very hard to attain happiness, very often without knowing exactly what happiness means because of his ignorance of the nature of life.

JAKARTA – In Indonesia, interfaith marriage is legal but culturally discouraged and some religious figures have made it their mission to help couples of different religious backgrounds get married despite societal obstacles. But what if neither wants to switch faiths? Some have solved this problem by getting married in Singapore or Australia, where different religious backgrounds are a non-issue.
Among those coming to the rescue such couples is Mohammad Monib, director of the Indonesian Conference on Religion and Peace, a religious freedom advocacy group in Jakarta, who says he has helped more than interfaith couples marry in the last decade. He does this by making them aware of their rights and guiding them through the rules and paperwork. Monib, a Muslim, is married to a Muslim woman and thus never personally experienced these problems, but he feels compelled to defend those who do.
Young people, he said, seem much more open to the idea now than in when he first started working on the issue. Monib has helped lovers end decades of heartbreak. In , he helped a Muslim-Protestant couple who had been dating for 20 years, since middle school, finally get married. Monib helped them talk to a priest, and later to the local village leader of their neighborhood in Jakarta. Monib echoed this, saying that even on Java island, there were some towns that had a more relaxed attitude than Jakarta towards interfaith marriage, like Solo and Sragen.
