The couple, who met in London in 2010, have been going strong for nearly three years, despite a little hateration here and there.
Eve spoke to Hot 97’s Angie Martinez recently about her relationship: “We learn a lot about each other but people came at me like, ‘I can’t believe you’re dating a white dude and you don’t like black dudes no more.’ I’m like, ‘I love black men, it just so happens that my heart went this way right now.’” Thatta, girl!
I am well aware, that there are 1001 exceptions to this generalised statement, but cross cultural relationships between the sexes are often fraught because of differences in expected behaviour, that are often not apparent until conflict occurs.
It is largely a cultural issue, and there are of course always exceptions, and it is very easy to play up stereotypes.Kanye West once rapped about how successful black men will "leave your ass for a white girl," and then put himself into that box by marrying a white woman, furthering the pervasiveness of flawed, generic ideas about interracial relationships.That swath of generic ideas has an actual impact on culture and society, too.They may be fiction, but they reflect underlying behaviour pretty well.There is often a sense of ownership and inherent superiority on the part of males towards females even in the loosest of relationships, and a total intolerance of the idea of a female having the audacity to break a relationship.
They are upper caste Hindus and Sikhs (Rajputs, Jatts, bhappey).
