Do political affiliations matter in relationships?
They say opposites attract, but at what point does opposition cross the line? Could you be with someone who had different political views than you? Would it matter in the long run or should politics stay out of relationships entirely?
It shouldn't matter all that much. When it's all said and done we are really on our own regardless of which political party is in power. Awhile back I wrote a hub called Polictical Gridlock: It's The American Way!"

As long as a couple agrees on money issues, household chores, sexual frequency & quality, rasing chidren, and maintain shared goals for the future they will be fine. Most political arguments are over hypothetical situations which don't effect most people. Even with the wars protest was very limited because we no longer have a draft. Belonging to different political parties should have about as much of an effect on a relationship as preferring to sleep on a particular side of the bed or having different favorite hobbies. Politics is pratically like sports. Can a Red Sox fan and a Yankee fan survive together? :-)

I'm sure anyone who has seen my responses on HubPages knows I'm a conservative. I also have relatives who are liberal, gay as well as a recent revelation of a transsexual. So, how do we all get along? We discuss politics but realize family is more important than politics. At...
