Can anyone provide some advice on the best places for mixed couples (eg most accepting) - I'm white, she's East Indian descent and we're both from Canada originally.

We're thinking Houston area, Austin, or San Antonio

Other than these cities being all in Texas they are quite different from each other. A cursory glance at this website's demographic data and a brief look through some recent threads would reveal Houston and maybe Austin would be your best bets, going on the mixed race couple criterion alone. Houston is very diverse and you can feel free to live pretty much anywhere you please, same in Austin, but it's not very diverse. Without checking said data, I would wager there is a much stronger East Indian presence in Houston than in Austin. From there it depends on what other kinds of things you're looking for in a city. Good luck with your move.

There's a big Asian/Indian community in Sugarland.

I don't want to be racial or anything, but in my experience a white male can be with any race in America without prejudice; certainly in Houston. Well, you may have a problem with some Indians over religious concerns, but I'm sure you've dealt with that already.

You will also see a good amount of mixed marriages in San Antonio, because it is a military town. I know several women from East Asia who married GIs and ended up in San Antonio due to the vagaries of military life. If you go a generation farther back than the soldiers who met and married women from Asia, you get the European war bride generation, so it's by no means a new phenomenon in SA.

I've lived in Texas all my life, and one of the most interesting things I discovered is that in other parts of the country is that an anglo/hispanic marriage is considered a "mixed marriage" in many places, whereas in Texas it's so common that if you pointed it out to people you'd just get a blank look.

My wife and I are an interacial couple (asian/caucasian) and are orignally from San Francisco. We have felt at home in the Houston and its suburbs for the last 8 yrs and have never been uncomfortable. Houston is an amazingly diverse, international and open city with a lot of culture. Not an issue in the Houston metro
