Longest-lasting marriages: white men and black women?

Interracial marriage in the United States - Wikipedia: "White wife/Black husband marriages show twice the divorce rate of White wife/White husband couples by the 10th year of marriage, whereas Black wife/White husband marriages are 44% less likely to end in divorce than White wife/White husband couples over the same period."

That's based on ’’But Will It Last?’’: Marital Instability Among Interracial and Same-Race Couples (PDF).
