New York City has long been the country's cultural melting pot.

And it's hard to imagine a time when interracial marriage was actually barred in some states.

But on June 10, 1967, the U.S. Supreme Court declared in a landmark decision that no state could restrict marriages based on race or culture.

Fast-forward 42 years. These local mixed-cultural couples still face challenges when blending their diverse backgrounds - from how to raise the kids to dealing with extended family.

More often than not though, the joys of being married far outweigh any obstacle.
