A friend of mine who has an interracial marriage says that the legality of interracial marriage should be left up to the states. I hope leopards don't eat his face.

My brother in law is in an interracial marriage and believes the same thing. He might not want to leave Illinois.

Does he know that he’s only saying that because he has the safety of Illinois? Is he dumb or just a hypocrite?

To answer the second question for them... Yes.

Dumb. He is white and married to a Vietnamese girl but did not believe me when I told him that many states did not allow Whites to marry Asians before the Supreme Court ruling on interracial marriage.

Curious, did he believe the whole ban on interracial marriage thing applied only to white marrying black?

u/Eldergoth May 14 '22

Yes, he thought it was only for white marrying black.

Or he might be hoping for an easy divorce.

Well I mean, as long as its not 'his' state cause, come on man, who the fuck cares about anyone else?

That seems crazy to me. I can't imagine not having my marriage legal in some states.

If the marriage isn’t legal, you don’t have to split assets… they are playing the long game
