What are the divorce rates for interracial marriages?

Answer

Divorce or separation rates among interracial marriages were around 41 percent in 2012. This was higher than the rates among those who married within their race; approximately 31 percent of same-race couples underwent separation or divorce.

The statistic citing a 41 percent divorce or separation rate among interracial couples came from a Pew Research Center study that was released in February 2012. The study found that white women who married outside their race were more likely to divorce. The study also found that black-white interracial marriages had the lowest stability, followed by Hispanic-white interracial marriages. Although divorce rates appear to be higher among interracial couples, the number of interracial marriages has increased over time. According to the Pew study, 8.4 percent of marriages in the United States were interracial as of the time of the study, compared to only 3.2 percent of marriages in 1980.
