This landmark book looks at what it means to be a multiracial couple in the United States today. According to Our Heartsbegins with a look back at a 1925 case in which a two-month marriage ends with a man suing his wife for misrepresentation of her race, and shows how our society has yet to come to terms with interracial marriage. Angela Onwuachi-Willig examines the issue by drawing from a variety of sources, including her own experiences. She argues that housing law, family law, and employment law fail, in important ways, to protect multiracial couples. In a society in which marriage is used to give, withhold, and take away status-in the workplace and elsewhere-she says interracial couples are at a disadvantage, which is only exacerbated by current law.
