My Lot in Life

Facts
As a young adult in today's society, we are much more accepting of interracial relationships compared to previous generations.
According to a Harvard study, those between the ages of 18-to-29 years old showed large support for interracial relationships.
Millennials
Statistics
In 2012, 85% of Millennials said they would be fine with a marriage with an individual from any ethnic group.
For individuals between the ages 30-to-49-years old this percentage dropped to 73.
55% of individuals between the ages 50-to-64-year-olds demonstrated support.
Parents may be concerned that because of differences in culture and ethnicity there could be added stress put on the relationship.
Concern of what other people think/my image.
Certain relationships were looked upon much differently as they were growing up, so having their child in one of these relationships may be out of their comfort zone.
You're growing up and experiencing things they never will.
The story
My sweetheart is of a different race and culture, but my parents don't approve of the relationship.
Reasons for Concern
Impact
If married, we would have mixed children.
Celebrations and holidays will most likely include traditions from two different ethnicities.
If both sides of parents don't approve, relationships with our parents could become tense and uncomfortable.
Worst case scenario: parents may want nothing to do with your significant other.
