Interracial marriages in the United States have jumped more than fivefold in the half-century since the Supreme Court ruled they were legal. According to a Pew Research Center report on Thursday, they make up 17 percent of newlywed couples in 2015. The trend has been marked by growing acceptance as well, with 39 percent of adults saying that it is good for society, which is a 15-point increase in seven years. Pew said among all married Americans, about 10 percent, or 11 million people, had a spouse of a different race or ethnicity.
