Interracial marriages have typically been highlighted through two points of view in the United States: Egalitarianism and cultural conservatism.
Gurung & Duong (1999) compiled a study relating to mixed-ethnic relationships ("MER"s) and same-ethnic relationships ("SER"s), concluding that individuals part of "MER"s generally do not view themselves differently from same-ethnic couples.
White women responded to multiracial "Asian-white" men and white men most frequently, and they responded to (monoracial) Asian men and to African American men the least.

And gaps between higher- and lower-income students persist, with some changes that vary by subject and grade.

Several studies have found that a factor which significantly affects an individual's choices with regards to marriage is socio-economic status ("SES")—the measure of a person's income, education, social class, profession, etc.
In 15 years of increasing average test scores, black-white and Hispanic-white student achievement gaps continue to close, and Asian students are pulling away from whites in both math and reading achievement.
In a new study about to be published in "American Sociological Review," researchers from the University of Texas and University of Massachusetts examined 6.7 million initial messages sent between heterosexual women and men from 2003 to 2010 on one of the largest dating websites in the United States to see how often daters of different races received responses.
"How Asians are treated in the dating market is highly gendered," University of Texas Austin Assistant Professor of Sociology Ken-Hou Lin told NBC News, "Asian women often receive similarly favorable treatment as white women do, while Asian men experience a level of discrimination that is comparable to black men." Now, however, multiracial Asian Americans who self-identified as "Asian-white" were among the most popular of the racial groups.
