Dating outside social class

The phrase “finding a man who wants to be a grown-up” came up several times.

This response summarized the challenge nicely: “Meeting a man who I feel compatible with, feeling attracted to that same man AND having him treat me well.” This is what all the online dating methods call the phase.

After the 4th time I finally smartened up and focused on moving on.

I’ve now been dating a really great guy for over 2.5 years. Which brings us to the results of the survey I did last week.

Newlyweds are a subset of the “currently married” population, which includes individuals whose marital status is “married, spouse present.” When comparing characteristics of detailed groups of newlyweds by race/ethnicity as well as gender patterns, only intermarried couples involving a white spouse are analyzed, and they represent about 68% of all intermarried newlywed couples between 20.

For illustration purposes, “/” (not specifying gender) and “-” (specifying gender) are used to indicate different types of couples.

By Wendy Wang This report analyzes the demographic and economic characteristics of newlyweds who marry spouses of a different race or ethnicity, and compares the traits of those who “marry out” with those who “marry in.” The newlywed pairs are grouped by the race and ethnicity of the husband and wife, and are compared in terms of earnings, education, age of spouse, region of residence and other characteristics.

This report is primarily based on the Pew Research Center’s analysis of data from the U. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) in 2008-2010 and on findings from three of the Center’s own nationwide telephone surveys that explore public attitudes toward intermarriage.“Intra-marriage” and “marrying in” refer to marriages between spouses of the same race or ethnicity.“Newly married” or “newlyweds” refer to couples who got married in the past 12 months prior to the survey date (American Community Survey).I’ve come to realize that he is not good for me and have left twice but he has come back every time without promising me a future.I spent 9 months with a “bad boy,” who managed to break up with me 4 times in just 9 months.The term “Asian” includes native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders. The terms “black” and “African American” are used interchangeably in this report. This report was researched and written by Wendy Wang, research associate at the Social & Demographic Trends project of the Pew Research Center. Passel, senior demographer at the Pew Research Center, participated in the initial planning of the project and prepared the couple-level ACS datasets for the analysis.
