Statistics interracial dating marriage
WASHINGTON — More and more Americans are marrying people of different races and ethnicities, reaching at least 1 in 6 newlyweds in 2015, the highest proportion in American history, a new study released Thursday showed. This is a big jump from 50 years ago, when the Supreme Court ruled interracial marriage was legal throughout the United States.Currently, there are 11 million people — or 1 out of 10 married people — in the United States with a spouse of a different race or ethnicity, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of U. That year, only 3 percent of newlyweds were intermarried — which means they had a spouse of a different race or ethnicity.
Thirty-six percent of Asian women and 28 percent of Hispanic women intermarried in 2015, while 26 percent of Hispanic men and 24 percent of black men married someone of a different race or ethnicity.
According to Pew Research Trends, White and Asian newlyweds have the highest combined income compared to any other pairing (including non-interracial marriages) with a median of ,952.

This is because a higher percentage of Black women are divorced and widowed than men.
Also in 2014 just under half or 48% of black women had never been married which is up from 44% in 2008 and 42.7% in 2005.
