Question:Would you break up with someone who didn't share your political ideals?

There's a funny article on TheFrisky (Link today about how a woman can put up with differences in musical tastes, beer-drinking habits and almost anything else, but when she and her BF voted for different candidates, it was a definite dealbreaker.

I'm not sure I could be with someone who didn't share my political ideals; it would likely be indicative of greater differences in opinion on big life issues.

I was in a completion with my husband’s ex, even before we got married, I thought she might stop interfering in our affairs after marriage, but she continued, spreading rumors about my past, calling me names. She vowed to cause breakup to our 2-year-old marriage, because my husband preferred me over her, she was so jealous and decided to consult a priest who caused our breakup on March 17. She was so evil that she don’t even hide her evil acts, after opening up to me that she caused our split, and laugh at me as she tries to take back my husband.
It was a slap on my face and total humiliation, and I demanded justice from spiritual father dr. wakina, after going through testimonies about him on TV and blogs, why I chose him was that he doesn’t cast spell against one’s wish and his spell has positive effects to family growth. My life changed after the spell was done on us and the evil lady flee overnight. Am so exited right, dr. wakina’s spell blessed us beyond measures and I encourage you to contact him via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com

My wife said the first time she was caught making out with a co-worker was that “she was being pushed by the devil”. She fakes business vacations on several occasion just to spend private time alone with her co-worker. She plays her game so tight that I had to employ informant to always track every of her moves. I didn’t believe most of the results, but I have always been suspecting until when I was brought to witness her actions. It was so painful than I was expected. We had serious issues that almost lasted a year and she can’t stop seeing the guy. I thought of divorce, but it might affect our kids and I don’t know any other means to employ that will make her stop. I was recommended to search blogs for spell casters that can help, that’s when I fell in love with comments I read about Dr.Wakina on Link and some testimonies on Link before I was convinced enough to contact him via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com I didn’t expect much from him, but his presence in my life gave me hope, he did his thing and cast the spell that united our spirit and soul, the spell changed our feelings and thoughts, she no longer have feelings for another man except me for months now, we thinks more about our future together with the kids and we called dr. wakina to thank him as a family, I was blessed and touched for what he is doing. I promised to share this testimony and his email to help save families who are having crisis. Contact him via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com

If one partner is fiscally conservative while the other believes in after-school programs and universal healthcare, the issue might be less of a problem than it would be for a couple whose political ideology is closely associated with their core value system. The real question is, can you respectfully agree to disagree with your partner? For some couples, heated debates can be a great aphrodisiac!

Because your partner has a different political views is not a reason to end a relationship. This should greaten your communication on why you both have different views. I have dated a man and both was on different sides of the party. It did not cause any conflict but allow us both to have open minds. There will be things either of you will not agree on. Allowing yourself to listen(does not mean you have to agree; you may just learn something.

My husband and I have been on opposite sides of the fence in this election, but it hasn't had a negative impact on our marriage. In fact, I enjoy our heated political debates (we just make sure not to discuss politics all the time). It also helps that in my family, everyone has their own political opinion, so I am used to being at odds every now and then. We have had many "arguments" about politics around the dinner table, and it hasn't hurt our family dynamic in the least.

It depends on how many things you disagree on. In any relationship, you will have different views on all sorts of things, so you pick your battles, i.e., which are you willing to compromise on and which aren't you.
