Interracial Relationships

Trying to balance keeping your partner happy and keeping your family happy can get difficult. If your family isn't happy with your partner because of his/her race contact a couple's therapist for advice on how to handle this situation.

Interracial Relationships

My family is not supportive of my interracial relationship. What can I do?

Even what seems to be the perfect relationship has flaws. No relationship is perfect which means not everyone is going to get along 100% of the time. Most of us truly value our family’s opinions when it comes to our relationships. Because we value their opinions, we have a hard time when they don’t accept our significant other because of their race or ethnicity. In certain cultures, elders and family members prefer that the young men and women in their family only date people of the same race and those who have the same cultural and religious beliefs. If you are in an interracial relationship and your family is not accepting, you have options. The highest ranked and the most successful option is speaking to a professional, such as a couple’s therapist. Because each interracial relationship is different, you will need specific advice that could benefit your situation. A couple’s therapist can provide you with advice and techniques to approach the situation with your family. Couple’s therapy is important because both you and your partner can voice your opinions in a safe and confidential environment. Together with your partner, family, and therapist, you will be able to handle the situation with respect.
