Census reports show that interracial dating is on the rise with Latino and White mixes leading the pack.Skin color is just the product packaging, but what happens when it's what's inside that is completely different?

Mike: I’m German and I’m Catholic while my wife is Thai and she’s Buddhist.We have what you call a real Mixed marriage – both interracial and interfaith.The Buddha realized that one of the main causes of man's downfall is his involvement with other women (Parabhava Sutta).Man must realize the difficulties, the trials and tribulations that he has to undergo just to maintain a wife and a family.
