Number of mixed marriages
How many mixed marriages are there?
4.8 million in the US
There are more and more mixed marriages in the world. We can also speak about an ascending trend. For example, in the United States of America there are 4.8 million mixed marriages. What does this mean? One in 12 marriages is a mixed marriage. This is definitely something. The main idea is that the rise in interracial marriage signifies that race relations have improved over the past quarter century. It is interesting to know that 8.4 percent of all current U.S. marriages are interracial, up from 3.2 percent in 1980.
