My boyfriend and I live in a college town, and after completing the mba program, plan on moving elsewhere. We have never encountered problems with our relationship here, but his family [who are Nigerian] do not necessarily approve. We have also been to North Carolina where we received a number of unaccepting glances.

I have been in an interracial relationship for over a year now (white female, black male), and although where we live it is absolutely acceptable (most of the black men date white women), I know this is not always the case. I am curious how this topic is viewed in other areas, and the difficulties, or lack there of, people have experienced.
