Reaction of Society
There are people in the society one lives always ready to judge others. Interracial marriage may bring adverse criticism from such people. If these people are able to influence others in the society, one may find majority of society against the decision of interracial marriage. This carries a potential risk of social isolation and one must be able to withhold the pressure.
