While technology has brought about a change in the way people communicate, one thing remains the same and that is the desire to fall in love. At Genesis we read, it is not good for the man to continue to be alone. Unfortunately, not everyone who has the desire to find someone and get married gets to do that. We have all been there, and it is for this reason that we created this site. We wanted to create a space that would allow genuine JW singles to meet people and hopefully fall in love with someone who is evenly yoked.
Do Jehovah's Witnesses look down on interracial relationships?
Jehovah Witness Dating - Meet Other Jehovah Witness Singles Near You!
Here is a question I want to pose because I do not know the correct answer. I have seen many interracial married couples among Jehovah's Witnesses--moreso than I have seen in other religions. However, I have been told that once upon a time, interracial marriage was frowned upon by the WTS hierarchy. I know of one couple in Alabama who had a civil ceremony when none of the local elders would perform it for them or allow the Kingdom Hall to be used for their wedding. One man told me he believed that decades ago not only were these marriages actively discouraged, but that persons entering into them could be disfellowshipped! I didn't want to believe this, but when I read some of the racist beliefs of Charles Taze Russell, I had to admit that it was a possibility.
Are Jehovah's Witnesses against interracial marriage?
Asked by Wiki User. Jehovah's Witnesses believe there is nothing wrong with interracial dating and have no religious mandate to either prohibit it or discourage it. In fact, it is very common among Witnesses, because their are no racial divisions when it comes to meeting together - it is not strange to find Greeks, Italians, Portuguese, Zulu, Xhosa, Malawian, Afrikaans, British, Zimbabwean, and Nigerians all worshiping together in a single Kingdom hall in say, South Africa.
