    There is no harm in having different Germanic ethnic groups mix, at least in my opinion anyways. If anything, having our different ethnic groups mix is helping Germanic preservation. If you're able to marry somebody of your own culture, then of course that would be the ideal situation. That isn't always the case though. In today's world, where immigrants taking over our beloved home lands, ruining the future of our children and race, we need to do what we can to preserve our people as a whole. Maybe if we were a few hundred years in the past we could focus on completely preserving our different Germanic ethnicities.

    The scenario almost inevitably leads for one from the pair to give up more of his/her culture in favor of the other, same goes for their children.
    It shouldn't too much of a culture shock. It's true, all of the Germanic cultures have their differences, but they always have their similarities. As for the children, let the Gods decide for them. To elaborate; the children should be able to feel and sense a closeness for which ethnic group beckons to them the most. As for which ethnic group, there would be no incorrect choice since both would be Germanic cultures .

    Which leads to another question, how much love for your own culture and language must you have if you are willing to switch them for the sake of your partner?
    That shouldn't be a matter of love, but a matter of simply where you want to locate. If a Scotsman and a German just got married and decided to move / stay in Scotland, then naturally they should focus on English as the language, but still manage to keep both cultures and vice versa.

    To Americans it may not matter since the ancestral background is often inconsequential and they have the Anglo-American culture and American English language. But it's not the same between European ethnicities. Europe is not (yet) a melting pot where only the white or Germanic race matters. There are still significant differences from one country to another.

    I am against mixed relationships. Marrying someone from your own nation is common sense, people who marry foreigners have a milder form of the disease that makes people race mix. It's all part of this aimless spiritual vacuum our society has become which makes people constantly yearn for the exotic to add some excitement to their meaningless lives.

    If you are a nationalist surely you would want someone from your own background and language? There is clear correlation between declining national identity and international marriages. In nationalist regions such as Serbs and Basques there is hardly any foreign relationships.

    America is beyond saving. They have come up with terms like White Nationalism that imply kinship with anyone vaguely pale skinned. This is because they have lost all ethnic identity. The EU is turning european nations the same way. A lot of british men think its wonderful they can pick up some slav girl with ease now we are all in the EU. Even if you marry a white foreigner it slowly breeds acceptance of 'foreigness' and before long even racialist families will tolerate mixture with non whites.

    In the marriages section of my local newspaper there is always a photo of an english man grinning like the cheshire cat next to some foreign girl. The children of such relationships will not have the attachment to England that a pure blood has. Europe must strive to keep national identities at all costs.

    North Americans should most certainly strive to marry Europeans of their own ancestral roots. It is because our ancestors immigration here that we lost our true Germanic cultures and people. I fully believe that we need to be with Europeans to preserve our Germanic cultures in north America. For example, an English American should marry someone from England who has a pure or predominant English background. There is no such thing as a pure Canadian or American. These countries were founded from colonization, so none of us our pure. We need to get back to our homelands and mix with our people. So many of the Europeans here have a strong dislike for us colonials but it is not our fault that our ancestors abandoned our cultures and came over here. None of us asked to be born here. As far as relationships in Europe go, Germans should stay with Germans; English with English; Dutch with Dutch....etc. Europeans should keep their Germanic nations pure.
    All things must come to the soul from it's roots, from where it is planted. The that is beside the running water is fresher, and gives more fruit.

    Actually, the same could be said of Germany because the modern country of Germany consists of lands that were once occupied by distinctive ethnic groups. Up until the unification of Germany in 1871, "Germans" were often more inclined to identify themselves with their own regional territory, so much so that one "German" territory would often fight against another. Just look at how many "German" rulers sided with Napoleon against Prussia, for instance! In trying to create a unified Germany, the governments of the Second Reich tried to impose a universal language--High German--and to gradually eliminate regional divisions through German nationalism. The Nazis continued doing this with even more verve. The fact that you seem to equate German identity with the "nation" of Germany as defined by the imposed laws of 1945 (meant to re-establish to a certain extent the Germany of 1871) seems to suggest that you yourself seem to think that "ancestral background is... inconsequential" to some extent. Moreover, any basic understanding of German history and genealogy should make one aware that Germany/central Europe very much has been a "melting pot". I wonder just how "pure" your own ancestry is...

    But how many North-Americans have uniform ancestry in the way that Northern-Europeans have?

    I guess that if someone has a very uniform ancestry from a certain Germanic folk, he or she could integrate there and if this happens in low quantities, it could happen without influencing that Germanic folk's culture too much. But if this happens in great quantities, it will always alter that culture somehow.

    I still feel though, that if one group of people detaches itself from their folk, they become another one. That is how the different Germanic folks came to be, why should it be different now? I don't go claiming i'm Scandinavian because my (and those from all Skadites') far ancestors once came from there.


    For the rest, i very much agree with Vectis. If someone actively seeks out a partner from (partly or not) another folk, his or her connection to his own is already weakened in a far state.

    I would have no problem with being with someone who was also Germanic but wasn't English. I also wouldn't care if my *non-existent* children wanted to do so.

    I think if I was in luuurve with someone enough I would want to assimilate myself into their culture etc. etc. so no one would even notice, so shh.

    For example, I feel there is very little difference between the English and our friends from the southern hemisphere (Aussies, Kiwis) culturally apart from they're slightly better looking and have more BBQs (I would marry one for that reason alone).

    It's acceptable to me as long as they are Germanic and not just think they are.

    Ancestry is important too many people here in the united states, I am the type of person who will ask in a conversation, if I'm interested. Hey what's your nationality? And I'd say 98 percent of the people know what they are, nationality wise and are proud of what they are and feel connection to their mother lands and peoples. And would say no more than 5 percent marry inter-racialy...
    And what I would like to ask my brother's across the pond is, How do you know have you ever be in here ? To lecture us like 98 percent of america has lost knowledge of are ethnicity ? And my feelings on how I feel about inter racial marriages is... Marry and propagate within your own race. I have married and done so. But as to be divorced single male...
