When Interracial Marriage Was Illegal

It’s sad to think that at one time interracial marriage in the United Sates was illegal. Miscegenation laws were laws passed by individual states to prohibit interracial marriages.

The turning point occurred in 1967 when interracial marriage became legal when the Supreme Court named these laws unconstitutional.

If you are in an interracial relationship can you imagine not being able to marry your significant other? This is societal adversity to your relationship. Unfortunately people still hold these views today and you may encounter them at some point during your relationship. Chances are you won’t be able to change their mind – but knowing how to deal with them is all you need to know.

Comment below…how does it make you feel to know that years ago interracial marriage was once illegal?
