When my daughter was about four years old, I was sitting at a table with a group of mothers. The topic turned towards what we want for our children. I said "I want my daughter to be loving, independent, and show respect for others. Basically, as long as she is happy, then I will be ecstatic". Then we were talking about our kids dating, etc. Again, I said "as long as the person loves my daughter and treats her well, I will support any choices she makes regarding a life partner". One of the women said, "Are you telling us that you would pay for a big wedding even if she married a Black guy"? I turned to this woman and said "I will throw her a big wedding and pay for it even if she were to marry a Black girl"! After this, the conversation ended...lol.
My children are individuals. They are not me. What attracts them to someone may or may not be the same as what attracts me. If a person of the same sex makes them happy, then, that is all that matters to me. If a person of another race or religion makes them happy, then, by all means be happy. As long as they are following their hearts and not the crowds, they will be happy.
Well I and my children are white and my grandson is half Mexican. My son's current girlfriend is Vietnamese. She is beautiful. One of my best friends are gay. I am bisexual. I do believe I would accept an alien from outer space as my child's significant other as long as the LGBTQ or A made my child happy!!!
...I wouldn't care either way, as long as they feel love in their heart for the individual and the person is good to them. ...So if I was to raise Hell about the relationship, it wouldn't be because of race or sexual preference.
It wouldn't bother me as long as they were happy I'll be happy I don't see colour as a problem But I wouldn't support my kids if they wanted to marry the same sex that would be very hard for me
I would not like or approve of it. I would hope I could overcome it. Thank goodness she is already in a serious relationship expecting her first child. Who knows though.
All I care about is that my child is happy and loved and treated with kindness. The adjectives of their partner are irrelevant.
I wouldn't care if it was a different race or ethnicity but same gender would rattle me a bit. I would accept in the end though.
Race and ethnicity, not a problem. But given what the Bible says, not of the same gender. Not cool with that
I was raised to think White with White and black with black and so on but you can't stop love so yes I would
I am so open-minded and live and let live, but I don't have children...so can't say for sure
The only thing that matters to me is that my son develops relationships that make him happy.
I would be proud that they are being themselves and not being who people want them to be.
If the loved my child respected her and protected her I would love them also
I would be supportive of my child's choice. I love them unconditionally.
Thats their choice who they choose to love as long as their happy
Gender or race wouldn't matter. It's all about character.
#1 It's their life. #2 racism/intolernace is ugly.
if it makes them happy, then I too am happy for them
i would be happy if she/he was happy
happy as long as they are happy
Fine about it all
Fine with it
