Vietnamese women dating black men
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.The same was true in 1980, when 4% of recently married men and 4% of recently married women had intermarried.By comparison, in 1980, the first year for which detailed data are available, about 230,000 newlyweds had done so.The long-term annual growth in newlyweds marrying someone of a different race or ethnicity has led to dramatic increases in the overall number of people who are presently intermarried – including both those who recently married and those who did so years, or even decades, earlier.
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%.
These intermarriage rates have changed little since 1980.
In 2015 the likelihood of marrying someone of a different race or ethnicity was somewhat higher among newlyweds with at least some college experience than among those with a high school diploma or less.
Overall increases in intermarriage have been fueled in part by rising intermarriage rates among black newlyweds and among white newlyweds.
The share of recently married blacks with a spouse of a different race or ethnicity has more than tripled, from 5% in 1980 to 18% in 2015.
