Caucasion dating asian woman from usa
About three-in-ten Asian newlyweds (29%) have a spouse of a different race or ethnicity. For newly married Hispanics and Asians, the likelihood of intermarriage is closely related to whether they were born in the U. The size of each racial and ethnic group can also influence intermarriage rates by affecting the pool of potential marriage partners in the “marriage market,” which consists of all newlyweds and all unmarried adults combined.
For example, whites, who comprise the largest share of the U. population, may be more likely to marry someone of the same race simply because most potential partners are white.
The association between intermarriage and educational attainment among newlyweds varies across racial and ethnic groups.
For instance, among Hispanic newlyweds, higher levels of education are strongly linked with higher rates of intermarriage.
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.
While there is no overall gender difference in intermarriage among newlyweds, starkly different gender patterns emerge for some major racial and ethnic groups.
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.
In 2015, that number stood at 11 million – 10% of all married people.
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.
There is no significant gender gap in intermarriage among newly married Hispanics across education levels or over time.
For black newlyweds, intermarriage rates are slightly higher among those with a bachelor’s degree or more (21%).
This pattern may be partly driven by the fact that Hispanics with low levels of education are disproportionately immigrants who are in turn less likely to intermarry.
However, rates of intermarriage increase as education levels rise for both the U. born and the foreign born: Among immigrant Hispanic newlyweds, intermarriage rates range from 9% among those with a high school diploma or less up to 33% for those with a bachelor’s degree or more; and among the U. born, rates range from 32% for those with a high school diploma or less up to 56% for those with a bachelor’s degree or more.In 2015, 13% of recently married men with a high school diploma or less and 14% of women with the same level of educational attainment had a spouse of another race or ethnicity, as did 19% of recently married men with some college and 18% of comparable women.
