Although the racist laws against mixed marriages are gone, several interracial couples said in interviews they still get nasty looks, insults and sometimes even violence when people find out about their relationships. Kimberly D. Lucas of St. She often counsels engaged interracial couples through the prism of her own year marriage — Lucas is black and her husband, Mark Retherford, is white.
The Lovings were locked up and given a year in a Virginia prison, with the sentence suspended on the condition that they leave Virginia. Their sentence is memorialized on a marker to go up on Monday in Richmond, Virginia, in their honor.
They simply wanted to be married and raise their children in Virginia.

But they found a willing priest and went ahead anyway. But their love survived, Rosol said, and they returned to Natchez to renew their vows 40 years later.
