Interracial divorce and white women

Interracial marriages that have one white person and one person of another race mostly only show higher divorce rates when the white spouse is a female. Black husband/white wife marriages are twice as likely to divorce as white/white marriages, Asian husband/white wife marriages are about 60% more likely to divorce as white/white marriages and white husband/Asian wife couples had pretty much the same divorce rate as white/white couples. Compared to Hispanic/Hispanic couples, Hispanic white/white couples showed a higher likelihood of divorce. Likewise, Asian/white couples were more likely to divorce than Asian/Asian couples. However, black/white couples only show a higher rate of divorce compared to black/black couples if the white person in the relationship is a woman.
