Asian girls dating black men
In 2015, 26% of recently married Hispanic men were married to a non-Hispanic, as were 28% of their female counterparts.
These intermarriage rates have changed little since 1980.
At the same time, intermarriage has ticked down among recently married Asians and remained more or less stable among Hispanic newlyweds. While 24% of foreign-born Asian newlyweds have a spouse of a different race or ethnicity, this share rises to 46% among the U. Since that time, the share of all newlyweds that were Hispanic rose 9 percentage points, from 8% to 17%, and the share that were Asian grew from 2% to 6%.
Even though intermarriage has not been increasing for these two groups, they remain far more likely than black or white newlyweds to marry someone of a different race or ethnicity. Among the half of Hispanic newlyweds who are immigrants, 15% married a non-Hispanic. At the same time, the share of white newlyweds declined by 15 points and the share of black newlyweds held steady.
In 1967, when miscegenation laws were overturned in the United States, 3% of all newlyweds were married to someone of a different race or ethnicity.
Since then, intermarriage rates have steadily climbed.
While 16% of those with a high school diploma or less are married to a non-Hispanic, this share more than doubles to 35% among those with some college.
And it rises to 46% for those with a bachelor’s degree or higher.
Overall increases in intermarriage have been fueled in part by rising intermarriage rates among black newlyweds and among white newlyweds.A substantial gender gap in intermarriage was also present in 1980, when 39% of newly married Asian women and 26% of their male counterparts were married to someone of a different race or ethnicity. While the gender gap among Asian immigrants has remained relatively stable, the gap among the U. born has widened substantially since 1980, when intermarriage stood at 46% among newlywed Asian men and 49% among newlywed Asian women.Among Asian newlyweds, these gender differences exist for both immigrants (15% men, 31% women) and the U. Among white newlyweds, there is no notable gender gap in intermarriage – 12% of men and 10% of women had married someone of a different race or ethnicity in 2015.By 1980, the share of intermarried newlyweds had about doubled to 7%. All told, more than 670,000 newlyweds in 2015 had recently entered into a marriage with someone of a different race or ethnicity.By comparison, in 1980, the first year for which detailed data are available, about 230,000 newlyweds had done so.
Perhaps more striking – the share of blacks in the marriage market has remained more or less constant (15% in 1980, 16% in 2015), yet their intermarriage rate has more than tripled.
