Interracial Marriage

I would love to hear your thoughts on marriage between different races.

Being on the spiritual path we all know that everyone is equal, we are all connected to the one Divine Source and it is all important to see what is on the inside of a person rather than their exterior look. I am married to a man from Indian descent and I am from European stock. I have always tried to keep a high vibration of love and integrity around people that believe races should not mix but I must admit it has been difficult. Especially when some people hold very strong, old fashioned views and they think they have the right to express them. My question is, how does one live in a world where your heart and soul say one thing and society (loudly at times) says another?
