 Interracial Marriages on Rise in US

A recent study reveals that one in 12 American marriages are between two people of different races.

The figure is even higher among newlyweds in New York state - where one in seven marriages in 2010 were interracial, according to the Pew Research Center report.

That is slightly below the national average for newlyweds.

In all, 8.4 per cent of current US marriages are between mixed-race spouses, up from 3.2 per cent in 1980, the New York Daily News reported.

As the number of interracial marriages has grown, the public has become far more accepting of them as well, the study says.

Several city-based interracial couples echoed that finding, saying they feel no stigma associated with their colourful marriages.
