Being an Asian living in Asia, I've seen so many mixed race/religion relationships and marriages that some work wonderfully and some don't. Undoubtedly, there are factors that will affect your relationship, but it still boils down to both of you whether you wanna make it work or not.

If you love her that much, then go for it.

mel - discrimination has nothing to do with greed and has everything to do with not accepting anothers belief, race, religion. unless you are comparing these big business corps of sending work to asia...but that is nothing to do with greed that is a business decision, other wise every corp would just move all there departments to asia and not have any prsence in any country.

i just know theres people out there that dont like other peoples cultures, beliefs, or race which is discrimination - this has nothing to do with greed.

of course were women are treated badly happens in all religions, but with that way of thinking you could say that theres aids in every country! when we know there is much more of it in africa. my point is that there is much more of it in muslim countrys!

i just personally believe that when going out with someone of another race is a 50 50 chance of working. Its about if each others family can accept it...and with most muslims familys, they will not accept a western dating a muslim.

also remember if one was to have kids with a muslim - just think of the hell you will be putting on a child with all the name slagging, race comments etc...in a western society...kids can be very mean!

my advice would be on this own subject. if you love her then keep her if you havent got that yet then get rid of her before its too late! were you become trapped!

How it started has eveything to do with greed. What is happening now, is the aftermath of it. It is taking so much time, to shed the lies that have been made up, about us.

Supressing women and depriving them of freedom cut the competition in half, for grabbing wealth. I wonder what would have happened, if we were not the providers of babies and sex. We would probably have been a nuisance, that would have to be got rid of and an excuse would probably have been made up, to do so.

As for your comment about aids. I presume u are referring to my comparison of womens rights here with those of women in muslim countries. As u stated, in a previous post, it was just as bad for women here in 1600s. Women have had to fight long and hard, to get the rights we have here.

About the race comments the kid would hear. We cant let narrow minded people stop us loving who we want. Hell, if one is to worry about the comments ones kids would hear, we cant have female children either. I think we have to educate our kids about prejudice. It is part of teaching them right from wrong. I dont think overprotecting them and hiding them from it is going to do anything to achieve this.

I have a friend who has a Vietnamese gf (but had been brought up most of her life in the UK). They've been together for 10 years, but it's only the last couple of years she's introduced her bf to the family, in fear of being dis-owned. Her family expected her to marry another catholic Vietnamese guy. Things have been very difficult for this guy, he's had to do so much to conform, he's become a catholic, he's learning Vietnamese (even though her family live in the UK), plus all the lies that they met at church 2 years ago! Her family are beginning to accept him, apart from her father. I can understand that this Vietnamese family are cautious and want to keep their traditions, but surely if they have made a life in the UK and brought up their children in the UK, they should expect that maybe their children might end up marrying someone British?

Mr Gecho

U defy tradition.
There is supposed to be a good twin and an evil twin.
Not 2 evil twins.

Good luck, with your relationship Zachary.

Fair enough Mr. Gecko and Mel, but this thread is about Zachery and the obstacles he's going to face if he pursues this relationship. If anyone is going to go "off topic", please bring it back before leaving the thread. Thank you. ;)

You mean Olaf and Mel;)
