In 2002, the Center for Disease Control published statistics about divorce rates that showed interracial marriages were more likely to end in divorce than same-ethnic marriages — 41 percent versus 31 percent.Interracial couples may grapple with different cultural assumptions and expectations so integrated into their lives that they’re not aware of them on top of all the usual marriage adjustments and stresses.According to all the latest marriage statistics here in the U.S., there are more black people marrying out-side of their race than ever before.
It is also believed that a large percentage of Black men marry White women.
Since 2000, the percentage of white men marrying white women has fell nearly seven percent.
Although the previously mentioned percentages, 36 and 33, were close in range, 2013 data shows a larger gap between genders when it came to interracial marriage.
The two major takeaways from the data are that marriages between white men and non-white women are up 36 percent since 2000 and marriages between white women and non-white men are up 33 percent in the same time period.
The Census data did not have information on same-sex marriage before 2013.
