I did some research and found that when the man is white and the woman is black, the divorce rate appears to be significantly lower.

When the man is black and the woman is white, the rate spikes significantly. What's up with that?

    I really don't think it matters and you would have to go by a case by case basis.

    No, the answer is very simple. The Black women will only marry her equal in education and status. Black man marries white mans leftovers or someone very uneducated. Thus, once the money runs out or ED takes hold, the white women is gone!

    Interesting! Thanks! If I understand it correctly, black male/white female marriages are less stable than white marriages, while white male/black female marriages are more stable than white marriages.

    Care to speculate regarding the reasons for this disparity?

    I mostly agree, except for the idea that "They use uneducated white women to give their self esteems a boost." While that may have been true in the 20th century, not so much nowadays. An unattractive white woman does little to boost the male ego. (IMHO)

    yes the white women does! The white skin, long hair. And lets not forget the beautiful mixed race children that will make the BM very proud! Very sad and very true!

    Very easy to explain the creator of the study Bratter..her father is white (bingo) and mother black ...and only that coupling is superior in the eyes of her study...no you see why they structured that to be the end result.all of bratter work is a negative when BM are involved

    see my posting. No status involved in th WM/BW marriage, just reality of how difficult it will be.

    I believe people should be happy I just tink that it looks weird. I mean it's cool for them I just think... Well I dont know it's just weird. They probably have relationship problems like any other relationship.

    I don't know, but I can't think of very many people that haven't been divorced at least once.

    I really don't know. I've known several interracial couples where the woman is White and their spouse is Black. The ones I know have been together for decades.

    The divorce rate is high in heterosexuals in the first place.
    Their are so few of these interracial couples the rate being high is inevitable.
