In sum, researchers have needs to understand better the dynamics involved within family, racial, and relationship milieus.
Many interracial couples do not have the full support of parents or family members.
Mc Fadden and Moore (2001) reported that since the family was a vital support system for couples in their study, lack of support could be detrimental to the health of such relationships.
Yancey and Yancey (1998) suggested that the “availability” of individuals for friendship was perhaps the most probable reason for interracial relationships.
They also speculated that individuals might interracially date (a) for the same “intangible” reasons of love and compatibility as individuals who date within their own race, (b) because of familiarity or desired immersion with a particular culture, and (c) because some might have “preferences” for particular skin colors as others might have for hair or eye colors.
