Do you live in a household with opposite political views?


I just heard a news story about a wife who divorced her husband because he was thinking of voting for a different candidate than her. I became curious about other households. I'd love to know if you live in a household where you and your significant other disagree on who should have won the presidency?

    Thanks Tamara, I am referring to a story where the wife asked for a divorce because her husband merely "thought" of voting republican. See the Gayle McCormick story. There are many similar stories, but this one caught my attention.

    I agree. We are different people coming together from different backgrounds, so our viewpoints may or may not be the same.

    Thank you for sharing your opinion, Kathleen. Realizing that there are subjects between you where there is no compromise is wise. Fortunately, my husband and I agree on political matters. However, on matters where we disagree, we let it go.

    Supporting who is in control is difficult, but I am in agreement with you. Once elected, we owe it to that person to support them. In America, there is always an opportunity to vote them out.

    I agree. Acceptance is difficult, but I believe like you, acceptance is wise.
