In Britain unfortunately, there is still a small undercurrent of dislike for such things. A person whose predecessors are immigrants from the Asian subcontinent I.E. India, Pakistan, might be reviled by their own family, for loving a white person and vice versa, Some asian beliefs are that such things bring shame and some but not all people with such Asian backgrounds, adhere to this draconian and loathesome attitude to humanity, which is a bad thing, as nobody should ever think like that and in some cases, people of such backgrounds have even been known to follow teachings, that shame equals punishment, which could include death of the one bringing shame.
I am not sure if your two backgrounds are similar or not, or what similarities in culture and tradition exist, but as long as you both remember to always value the other as much as is possible, you will never have any problems at all, becasue I've always believed you and he were made for each other and I'd stand by that.
