    Answered . No-o-o-o! As long as they marry for love and fulfill statutory requirements there will be "no problem". Let't wish them well.

    Answered . No, their race is not important. What is important is that they can show they have a real relationship, that they're not getting married just so she can get a green card. They should be prepared with as many documents as possible to show that their relationship is real -- photos together, letters or emails they might have sent each other, plane tickets, etc. from any trips they have taken together.
