LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDS: See how these Filipino-Indian couples prove what true and pure love is

“Love has no culture, boundaries, race and religion. It is pure and beautiful, like early morning sunrise falling in lake.”― Santosh Kalwar

Interracial marriages, described as unions that take place between people of different racial and cultural backgrounds, can be considered a magical blessing. Imagine having someone from a different race and ethnic ideals adore you and fall for you? It is perhaps among the most unique and purest kinds of love.

This type of bond also proves that everyone can widen each other’s viewpoints, approach the world in various ways, and even find that there is an association in our disparities.

And while this was an extremely controversial topic around the world at one point, the perception has changed over time—with interracial couples showing the world that indeed, love knows no boundaries.

Challenges faced by interracial marriages and how it changed the world:

As an interracial couple, people will possibly face extra challenges in their marriage, which can be in the form of varying opinions, or derogatory comments in public.

Other troubles could include disapproval from friends and families.
