Hello all. I am a 36 year old man that has been married to the most wonderful woman in the entire world for seven years. We are both Christian and love the Lord with all of our hearts. We met when she was in college and took our vows two years later in a church. Last year my father went to be with the Lord and left us by our self in Florida. So this year we have decide to move to Tennessee to be around her family. We are not Independent Fundamental Baptist but all her family is. Last year while I was talking to one of her cousin who is going to college in Texas to be a preacher. The subject of dating came up and was told that me and my wife would not be allowed to date if she had gone there. This means I would have not been able to marry her. The reason that I was given was that we are from different races. You see I was born 90 miles off the coast of the USA on island call Cuba. Which makes me a white Hispanic and she is White American. The funny thing is we both have done our family trees and my fore fathers came to North America (Cuba) via Europe before hers. So I don’t understand why Christian would not allow me to date her. My biggest fear is if they feel that different race should not date how do they feel about our marriage? Can some tell me where I can find this rule in the bible? P.S As Independent Fundamental Baptist are they going to try and break up our marriage and destroy the vows we made to Jesus Christ? May God keep you and bless you.
